Providing health care facilities to its people is the prime responsibility of the respective State Governments as health is a State subject and, as such, no information is maintained centrally. However, in so far as three Central Government hospitals located in Delhi viz. Safdarjung Hospital, Dr. RML Hospital and Lady Hardinge Medical College & its Associated Hospitals located in Delhi are concerned, these hospitals as tertiary care hospitals in Delhi which cater to health care of population of not only Delhi but also for the entire National Capital Region of Delhi and even far flung areas.
Therefore, the ever increasing patient load has put tremendous pressure on the existing infrastructure of these hospitals. However, continuous efforts are made to improve the infrastructure by way of the upgradation of various departments and redevelopment plan of these hospitals.
