Ram Manohar Lohia Hospital (formerly known as Willingdon Hospital) in New Delhi has 984 beds.

The hospital was founded, with only 54 beds, in 1932 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.[1] It was renamed in 1970s after Dr. Ram Manohar Lohia, the most important proponent of socialist ideology in India.

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.[1][2][3]

Annually,[when?] the hospital provides services to about 1.2 million patients as OPD cases, admits about 46,000 patients and attends about 150,000 emergency patients. The hospital conducts about 10,000 CT scans, 2,000 MRI scans, 200,000 X-ray cases, 2.8 million laboratory tests, 25,000 ultrasound scans, and about 9,000 major and 40,000 minor operations per year.
