Inception of Kamala Nehru Memorial Hospital


It was during Independence struggle when Kamala Nehru Memorial Hospital was born. Back in those times, several freedom fighters got injured fighting for the country’s independence. Ladies of the renowned Nehru family ran a dispensary to cure these ailing fighters. It did not take long for this small 24-bedded dispensary to become a hospital.

The hospital was located at Swaraj Bhavan, which was also the meeting place for all freedom fighters and think tanks, British took a quick step and banned the hospital and all sorts of activities. However, the hospital staff took initiative and treated its patients in a nearby open space.

During its initial years, the dispensary-cum-hospital was supervised by the wife of Jawaharlal Nehru, Kamala Nehru. But after her death in 1935, it was Mahatma Gandhi who took a step forward to keep the hospital running and developed several schemes to turn this miniature version of the hospital into a full-fledged, well-equipped and properly administered hospital. The draft idea of hospital was finalized on November 19, 1939 by Gandhi. Finally, it was on February 28, 1941, on Kamala Nehru's fifth death anniversary the hospital named Kamala Nehru Memorial Hospital was inaugurated.
