Fatima Jinnah Medical College, Lahore, Pakistan
About Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, Lahore
Teaching Hospital Affiliated to Fatima Jinnah Medical College
Sir Ganga Ram Hospital is situated in the heart of city, close to main artery of Lahore (Shahra-i-Quaid-iAzam) and Punjab Assembly. Already surrounded by thickly populated area the hospital not only caters to western and southern part of the city, but also provides services to the areas of adjacent districts of Lahore. In view of its distinctive status, it has the busiest Obstetric./Gynecology, department headed by highly qualified staff of three professorial units. The sanctioned bed strength of the hospital is 700, but the average number of admissions usually touches the figure of 800. The hospital mostly caters for poor and underprivileged class.
Although the number of students in F.J.
Medical College has increased but the teaching beds remain the same at
Sir Ganga Ram Hospital. To overcome this problem, we acquired 23 kanals
of land close to Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, where we have started
construction of 400 bedded hospital on self help basis for
teaching specialties and support facilities to be extended
proportionately. Name of this new hospital is Fatima Jinnah Block and we
hope to get a matching financial grant from Provincial & Federal
Governments so that we are able to complete this project of public
welfare. This will not only relieve the patient’s congestion but also
new departments will be established along with subspecialties which will
go a long way in the training of under and post-graduates.
A new 100 bedded emergency block is near completion replacing old emergency. It is designed to be state of the art, able to cater a large number of patients spread over 5-storied building, i.e, well equipped with operation theater and allied facilities.
Departments of Sir Ganga Ram Hospital have been renovated, especially operation theatres. Electro-medical equipment worth Rs.150 million have been purchased last year for operation theatres, ICU, CCU and new operation tables, lights, close circuit T.V. for teaching, ventilators, cardiac defibrillators, monitors have been provided. Radiology Department has been equipped with state of the art C.T. Scan, Mammography, 3D Color Doppler and new X-Ray machines. All these facilities are available to poor patient free of cost.
Similarly state of the art equipment has been purchased for the Eye Department and it is the best equipped department in public sector in the country. A lot of new equipment for medical & obstetrics/gynecology. Departments have been provided and commissioned and we hope this will go a long way in providing best medical facilities to the people of Lahore and Punjab.
FJMC enjoys an illustrious position owing to its attachment to “Madr-i-Millat” Mohtarma Fatima Jinnah and “Quaid-i-Azam” Mohammad Ali Jinnah and in view of its special and unique disposition of being exclusively for women, all parameters of an excellent MEDICAL UNIVERSITY for women are therefore available to attract the attention of the government to confer upon it the status of a university especially in view of the avowed policy of the President of Pakistan to give special and preferential treatment to all matters related to the women. A strong resolution in this respect has been passed by the Academic Council of FJMC and is strongly supported by the Board of Management, FJMC/SGRH.
