About St. Stephen’s Hospital- Parent Hospital

St. Stephen’s Hospital, Delhi is a charitable healthcare institution, established and run by the minority Christian community, and administered by the Governing Body on behalf of the St. Stephen's Hospital Society. Dating back to 1885, this Hospital's existence has been a saga of struggle and sacrifice in meeting the health needs of its surrounding community. It had a humble beginning in 1885 as a 20-bed hospital in Chandni Chowk in memory of Ms. Priscilla Winter, a non-medical missionary who led medical work for the ladies of the walled city. By 1908, the Hospital grew into a 100-bedded Women and Children's hospital relocated at Tis Hazari. In 1976 the Hospital was upgraded to a 450 bed multi-speciality hospital, and in 1996 a Mother and Child Block was constructed and commissioned. This modern well-equipped building has a present strength of 595 beds.
