Capital Hospital Islamabad was incorporated in the CDA as a small day care Medical Centre providing preventive and curative medical facilities on an outpatient basis to the employees of the Capital Development Authority, and residents of Islamabad in general.
The need for in-patient care necessitated the conversion of this day care center into a hospital facility and in March 1981, a 60 bedded hospital was started comprising Medical and Pediatric wards, coronary care Unit, X-Ray Department, Pathology Laboratory, Dental Clinic, Dermatology Department and Mother & Child Health Centre.
In the Second Phase the Surgical Block of the hospital was completed and started function in September 1992 with the Department of General Surgery, Orthopedics, Urology, Gynae and Obstetrics, Neonatology, Eye & ENT, Post-operative Intensive Care and Accident and Emergency Department. As a result, the hospital expanded from its original 60 beds to its current capacity of 250, allowing it to provide state-of-the-art emergency, outpatient, and ward medical and surgical care.
As of the year 1999, a new building for the hospital’s outpatient care services and laboratory had also been commissioned. In 2008, the Oxygen generation plant was installed at a cost of 15 million. Capital Hospital is a pioneer in this field. Moreover, a saving of 2-3 million/annum is being made since its installation in 2010, Imaging Radiology Department was established having the facility of CT, MRI in year 2010. The Cath Lab was also established in the same year. In 2014 Cardiac Surgical Department was established with a project cost of about 97.00 million.
