The Liaquat National Hospital (LNH), is located at Stadium Road, Karachi, Sindh, Pakistan. The hospital was established on October 16, 1958.

History[edit]

Soon after Independence the Red Cross Fete Committee, which was chaired by Syed Wajid Ali, raised about PKR 800,000 through Meena Bazaars organized under the guidance of Begum Rana Liaquat Ali Khan. At a meeting chaired by Begum Rana Liaquat Ali Khan, the committee decided to establish a hospital in Karachi, Pakistan under the name "The National Hospital". His Excellency Mr. Ghulam Muhammad, the Governor General of Pakistan, laid the foundation stone of the hospital on February 23, 1953.

In memory of Nawabzada Liaquat Ali Khan, the first Prime Minister of Pakistan who was assassinated in 1951, the National Hospital was renamed as Liaquat National Hospital.

Syed Wajid Ali was selected as the president of a committee of citizens, philanthropists, technocrats and government functionaries in November 5, 1958, and has remained so to date.

In 1978, the institute entered into the field of education. Today, it plays a role as a leading postgraduate medical centre having school of nursing, a school of physiotherapy and rehabilitation, College of Medical Laboratory Technology, and offers technical courses in a spectrum of services.

Now, the hospital has 700 beds with 32 specialty services, providing diagnostic and therapeutic facilities. The hospital has a residency training program, representing a majority of the existing disciplines, recognised for fellowship by the CPSP, including disciplines which are also recognised by the Royal Colleges in the UK.

The hospital has MRI machines, pathology laboratory facilities, additional Executive II and III Wards, CCU, MICU, dialysis machines and ventilators. An operation theatre, intensive care unit. and transplant unit complex are under construction.
