History of SGNHC

History of Shahid Gangalal National Heart Centre

A need for a specialist cardiac centre was there in the context of rising number of heart patients in Nepal . This need finally materialized in the year 1995 (2052 BS) when a decision to establish a national heart centre was taken by the government during the tenure of late honorable Prime Minister Man Mohan Adhikari. The council of ministers approved the handing over of approximately 51 ropanis of land, which was occupied by Bansbari shoe factory, in 8 th Bhadra 2052 ( 24 th August 1995 ).

According to the decision of the council of the minister in 2052 Bhadra 19th (1995-9-4) the hospital was named “Shahid Gangalal National Heart Centre” as tribute to one of our beloved martyr, Gangalal Shrestha. In 2057 BS ( 2001), a bill was passed by the parliament to make this institution an autonomous one.

Initial planning and cleaning of site was done by internal resources and with the help of ADRA. OPD services were started on 1998. Formal inauguration of the emergency, ICU, CCU, OT & 60 bedded in door services was done in 2058 Bhadra 20th (5-9-2001) by Rt. Honorable Prime Minister Sher Bahadur Deuba. In summary, despite its long and troubled Journey, the national heart center is now established and functional. This centre is now providing specialized cardiac care to thousands of heart patients by highly qualified and dedicated medical professionals.
