The War Memorial XXIX Punjabis Cantonment General Hospital is a 100 years old 24 bedded hospital run by Jalandhar Cantonment Board. The main building was erected by all ranks of XXIX Punjabis Unit in the memory of those who were killed by enemy action or died of wounds or disease during the Great War. Subsequently, other parts of the building viz private rooms, labour room, maternity ward, lecture hall & laboratory etc were added to it from time to time. It provides preventive, promotive and curative health services to the citizen of the cantonment and adjoining areas.

A Sparsh Centre began in the premises of Cantt General Hospital in 2011 as a centre for physiotherapy and counselling for Special Children with intellectual disabilities. In 2013, special educator was added as it is absolutely vital for the development of children. In 2014, speech therapist was further added to the centre. Later, in March 2017, vocational training was added to the Sparsh centre as an aim to give the children pre-vocational & vocational skills to make them socially independent. Presently, 32 students are regularly attending the school.
