HISTORY OF FMH
Fatima Memorial Hospital is a not for profit hospital situated in the heart of Lahore. It was established in 1977 as a 200 bed community hospital for women and children. Fatima Memorial Hospital’s vision on its inception was the betterment of the standard of maternal and child healthcare in Pakistan by providing state of the art quality tertiary care. Over the years, it has evolved into a 510 bed, multi-specialty, tertiary care teaching hospital offering state of the art, clinical & diagnostic services through experts in various fields to patients from all walks of life. As an academic institution, it also trains medical personnel in various specialties including Nurses, Doctors, Dentists and Allied health professionals. It is the teaching affiliate of FMH College of Medicine & Dentistry, FMH Institute of Allied Health Sciences, Saida Waheed FMH College of Nursing and FMH Institute of Post Graduate Studies.
In addition to providing one of the best services in Maternal and Child Health, it also provides state of the art healthcare in all major specialties of medicine and surgery to patients from all socio economic strata. The practice of cross subsidization enables us to provide services to all patients regardless of their ability to pay. Over the last few years, the provision of these services has been bolstered by several infrastructure enhancements. A state of the art Central Sterile Supply Department (CSSD) along with environment control in the operation theaters by installation of a HVAC system has helped us improve our surgical outcomes. Procurement of a CT scanner and other upgrades in the radiology department including purchase of state of the art ultrasound and Doppler machines have resulted in significantly enhanced diagnostic imaging services. A new fluoroscopy machine has further enhanced our diagnostic and intervention facilities in this area.
The FMH Lab has also received several new equipment resulting in a very extensive menu of lab tests being offered. New quality assurance procedures have been implemented and will help us provide very reliable lab results. At another level, we have implemented several measures to improve the patient experience. This includes a dedicated admission office and staff, valet parking, upgraded rooms and waiting areas. The management information system has also been implemented in several clinical and administrative areas resulting in significantly improved billing process.
The hospital pharmacy has been upgraded to cater to the needs of our outpatients as well. FMH has also continued to play an integral role as a teaching hospital by serving as the main teaching affiliate of various educational arms of the Fatima Memorial System including FMH College of Medicine and Dentistry, Saida Waheed College of Nursing and FMH Institute of Allied Health Sciences. We also offer the medical graduates from all over the country opportunities of postgraduate training in several disciplines.
In spite of all these enhancements, we continue to strive to improve the services being offered to our patients. A regular feedback process is in place and all our patients are encouraged to provide us confidential feedback so their concerns can be addressed. We hope to further enhance our image as a leading healthcare provider in the area and the country.
