Medical Superintendent

Brief History and Introduction

Mayo Hospital is the oldest and largest hospital of the country, serving the humanity since 1871.
Mayo Hospital was completed in 1870 and it started patient care in 1871. It was named after the Earl of Mayo, the then Viceroy and the Governor General of India.
Encompassing over 52.8 acres of land and the main building with boundary having 11 gates, the hospital is one of the largest hospitals in South East Asia and is a centre of excellence for public benefit. It had bed capacity of 300 beds on the Day of Independence (1947) but now is extended up to 2399 beds. The father of the nation, Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah also paid tribute to services rendered by this hospital on his visit to Mayo Hospital dated 19.03.1940.

Mayo Hospital is located in the heart of Lahore City and is surrounded by busy commercial and thickly populated residential areas with famous Anarkali Bazaar, Nila Gumbad, Urdu Bazaar and the Walled City of Old Lahore around it.

Earlier, after its construction in 1871, the Mayo Hospital was affiliated as a teaching hospital with the King Edward Medical College which came into being in 1860. The hospital was used to be managed by the Medical Superintendent under the administrative control of Government till 1999 when the whole setup was declared as Autonomous Medical Institution and the Mayo Hospital became Allied Hospital of King Edward Medical College. The Principal KEMC and the M.S. Mayo Hospital were placed under the administrative control of a newly created post of Chief Executive. In 2002, the Board of Governors took over the charge of the institution under PMHI Ordinance 2002, according to which the posts of Principal Executive Officer (PEO) / Dean and Deputy Dean were created. In the next year 2003, under another PMHI Ordinance 2003, the Board of Governors was replaced with the Board of Management under which Principal KEMC was declared Head of Institution consisting of KEMC & Mayo Hospital.

In year 2005, according to another Provincial Assembly of Punjab Act vide notification No. PAP-Legis– 2(19/2005 / 724), dated 12 May, 2005, the King Edward Medical University (KEMU) came into existence to which Mayo Hospital is to be declared as attached hospital for teaching purposes. The hospital so attached, however, has been placed under the administrative control of Govt. of the Punjab, the same administrative setup which existed since 1871 up to 1999.DEVELOPMENTAL STAGES

UNDER GRANT 16 (12000)



EXPENDITURE = Rs. 157.00 M





2004-2005 UNDER ADP SCHEME 999
• ALLOCATION = Rs. 13.5 M
• EXPENDITURE = Rs. 13.217 M






Sustainability of 100% Free of Cost coverage in Hospital will be ensured through Macro and Micro Financial Management Un-interrupted availability of resources and its rational utilization will be sought as hot pursuit. The essence would be to see through that this exceptional policy becomes natural to the hospital even in the future though a system of working.


Following factors are important:

• Commitment and desire of hospital administration to provide 100% free medical treatment to 100% patients at 100% occasions.
• Delay is harmful for the implementation of plans.
• Proper analysis of available resources, planning, documentation, implementation, management, monitoring, control and evaluation through feedback is essential.

The above said achievements have been made without incurring any additional expenses or demanding any further funds from the Government. It is all through better financial management, control and communication with all concerned. 1-3 monitoring / surprise visits in any time of day or night of different departments by the Medical Superintendent have made the difference.

Inspection by the Zonal Heads (Addl. Medical Superintendents, Deputy Medical Superintendents, Chief Pharmacist, Deputy Chief Nursing Superintendent and Nursing Superintendents) has been made mandatory.

Periodic meetings with Senior Registrars, Registrars, Nursing staff, Administrative staff in addition to Technical, Tender and different Hospital committees, have been scheduled on regular basis.
Through these meetings, concerned officials and staff are inspired and motivated. They are focused on ethical and moral values and the noble cause of their profession. Their refined attitude ensures quick and quality health services towards humanity in distress.


The above achievement, an unparallel feat of any Government Department is the result of dynamic leadership of Chaudhry Pervaiz Elahi, Chief Minister, Punjab and the support of Dr. Tahir Ali Javed, Minister for Health, Government of the Punjab. It can not go without saying that it would not have manifested itself so glaringly without the fine piece of administration and management by Dr. Fayyaz Ahmed Ranjha, Medical Superintendent, under the able guidance of Prof. Dr. Mumtaz Hasan, Principal KEMC .
