A piece of land measuring one square and seven acre i.e. (256 Kanals) situated on Ferozpur, Road,  Lahore  about 17 kilometers from  Lahore  was proposed for beggar house. The foundation was laid down by her Excellency BEGUM NAHEED SIKANDAR MIRZA W/O Governor General of Pakistan on 27-02-1958. The first phase of the building was completed in late 1958. An opening ceremony was held on 30-09-1958 by her Excellency BEGUM NAHEED SIKANDAR MIRZA.Due to some reasons the proposed beggar house plan was sacked and it was decided by the then Government to provide Health facilities to the general public. Hence the birth of Lahore General Hospital took place in the early 1959.[1] www.lgh - org.pk
