The construction activity to prepare the site for laying the foundation of the Hospital was started in the beginning of 1988. The foundation ceremony took place on October 06, 1989 by the parents and well-wishers of the sponsors and their dedicated team of colleagues and well- wishers.

The idea of developing a high class medical facility in Pakistan was conceived in New York, USA in the mid of 1985. The initiator Dr. Zaheer Ahmad, who had just finished his Internal Medicine Residency, called a meeting at his apartment in Brooklyn, New York on the weekend of July 20 & 21. Five professionals gathered there and discussed the idea in detail and approved it. The participants included Dr. Manzoor H. Qazi from Leesville, Louisiana, Mr. Muhammad Zahid from Kew Gardens, New York, Mr. Samiullah Sharief from Brooklyn, New York, Dr. Sabir Ali from Palm Bay, Florida and Dr. Zaheer himself Dr. Zaheer Ahmad was asked to prepare the feasibility report and the action plan. Subsequently Dr. Zaheer Ahmad moved to Islamabad on December 17, 1985 to start the work on this project.

After extensive discussions and many meetings, the present site in the capital city of Islamabad was selected for this project. The name SHIFA was approved because of its comprehensiveness, originating from our culture, belief and values in totality.

After acquiring over 11 acres of land in Islamabad in 1987, CRI, a hospital development company in Princeton, New Jersey was hired to develop the plan and design of the project. Mr. William Parker, Chief Architect of CRI headed the team, visited the site in Islamabad besides visiting the other hospitals across Pakistan. CRI finished its job in 1989.

Shifa International Hospital offers 398 IPD beds with quality care and OPD facility in different specializations. Nevertheless it is an unending journey. People at Shifa are continuously striving hard to bring improvement and novelty with every passing moment.[2] The construction –  activity to prepare the site for laying
