Formerly known as Willingdon Hospital, Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital in New Delhi has 984 beds.
The hospital was originally founded, with only 54 beds, in the early 20th century by the British Raj for their government staff. In 1954, in the newly independent India, control of the hospital transferred to the Central Government's Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.
The hospital is spread over 30 acres (12 ha), with 4 acres (1.6 ha) of land set aside for its Nurse's Hostel. It is one of the most prestigious Central Government hospitals because of its well-positioned location, a seventy-one bed Nursing Home for Central Government Health Scheme beneficiaries, and extensive subspecialty care. The hospital also has emergency services and has current[when?] plans for the construction of a Doctor's Hostel on its free land.
In a year hospital provides services to about 1.2 million patients as OPD cases, admits about 46,000 patients in Indoor and about 150,000 patients are attended in the Emergency. Similarly about 10,000 CT scans, 2,000 MRI scans, 200,000 X-Ray cases, 2.8 million laboratory tests and about 25,000 ultrasound scans are done. Hospital conducts about 9,000 Major and 40,000 Minor operations during a year.
