In 1996, a small group of doctors with decades of experience practicing in the United States held a retreat in Pennsylvania to discuss the creation of a medical facility in Pakistan. These initial doctors undertook the responsibility of moving back to Pakistan and building an institution with the goal of bettering medical care within the country. Many colleagues of different specialties joined the core group and this dream became a reality in 2000.
Doctors Hospital opened its doors in July 2000. The hospital was one of the first institutions in Punjab to offer comprehensive medical services in all disciplines under one roof. The hospital was also one of the first institutions in Pakistan to provide beating heart bypass surgery. In 2009, the hospital added 2 additional floors with 5 additional operating theaters and an additional ICU totaling 5 Intensive Care Units. The hospital is committed to offering state-of-the-art technology and services and over the years has added flat panel angiography, high magnet MRI, and advanced nuclear medicine. In November 2014 Doctors Hospital opened its Cancer Center.
We are proud to serve our community and Doctors Hospital has invested a substantial amount over the years into the healthcare infrastructure of our country in the form of facilities, equipment, jobs and services. Over the years Doctors Hospital has also hosted numerous patient education and awareness events for World Stroke Day, World Diabetes Day, World Hepatitis Day and World Heart Day among others. Since we opened our doors, close to 2 million people from all over Pakistan as well as abroad have come to Doctors Hospital for inpatient and outpatient care. We have performed over 75,000 surgeries, and more than 45,000 heart related procedures including over 12,000 bypass surgeries. Doctors Hospital now has a staff of over 650 employees and over 100 consultant doctors.
