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.cite web|url=http://rmlh.nic.in/home.htm|title=Ram Manohar Lahia Hospital Home Page]

The hospital is spread over thirty acres, with four acres 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 boasts round the clock emergency services and has current plans for the construction of a Doctor's Hostel on its free land.
