    In 2004, the out-patient facility was shifted to the Schell campus and the ward was renovated and expanded, with funding from many people. A major donor was Dr Robert Fish, who is Dr Ida Sophia Scudder’s grand-nephew and Dr Ida Belle Scudder’s nephew. His parents supported Ida B and her mission work in India and so the work of LCECU became close to his heart. The 2 wards were named after Robert’s parents – Charles and Lillian Scudder Fish ward; and aunt – Ida Belle Scudder ward. In 2005, a labour-room was also established in LCECU.
