When we today talk about multi-specialty hospitals in DELHI NCR ,a few hospitals we can name of and if we talk of trusted one ,Sir Ganga Ram Hospital ,Rajinder Nagar,New Delhi is one of them.
The original hospital was first founded in 1921 at Lahore India (now Pakistan) by Sir Ganga Ram (1851-1927), a civil engineer and leading philanthropist of his times. Following WWII and after the Partition of India in 1947, this second hospital was established in New Delhi on a plot of land approximately 11 acres. The foundation was laid in April 1951 by the then Prime Minister of India Shri Jawahar Lal Nehru and was inaugurated by him on 13 April 1954.
The hospital nearly closed due to lack of funds in the 1970s. It was restructured by Dr. K.C. Mahajan,one of New Delhi’s notable general surgeons, in 1981. As chairman of the Board of Management, Dr. Mahajan revised the financial and functional structure of the hospital. He still serves as an Emeritus Consultant in the hospital’s department of general surgery. The lesson learned in 1970s changed the hospital focus from being service oriented to being profitable with high quality canteen service.
The hospital now provide almost every treatment under one roof and the patient doesn’t need to be shifted to other hospitals to get certain tests which is there still with some of the hospitals.Such facility by Sir Ganga Ram Hospital make it one of a unique kind,but this hasn’t been overnight lot of efforts by specialized doctor’s team current and ex and obviously the leadership by experienced doctor like DR.D.S.RANA, MBBS, MD, MNAMS, FISN
