Lord Irwin laid down the foundation stone of this old hospital that was set up in Central Jail complex, named for the bulwark of British Viceregality - Lord Irwin.on 10 January 1930. It was in 1936 that under Lt. Col. Cruickshank, I.M.S., this Lok Nayak Hospital was commissioned as Irwin Hospital. Initial hospital had 350 bed, which was big enough to cater to the small population of Delhi during that era. With the attainment of independence in 1947 and the partition which brought in its wake an influx of thousands of refugees from Pakistan, existing medical facilities were found to be inadequate. The growing metropolis, therefore, saw a great deal of expansion of infrastructure facilities for the public. By early 50s Irwin Hospital had become one of the largest hospitals of Northern India.It remained & continues to be one of the most prestigious and most premier teaching hospital of Govt. of Delhi. In November 1977 the name of Irwin Hospital was changed to LNJP Hospital . Lok Nayak Hospital christened in 1989 from Lok Nayak Jai Prakash Narayan Hospital (LNJP) was originally popular and still continues to be known as Irwin Hospital. Recognizing the need for a Medical College in this area, the Government of India, in August 1957, recommended in its Second Five Year Plan opening of a Composite Medical College. Irwin Hospital was obviously chosen to be the venue for this college. Maulana Azad Medical College is attached to this Hospital. The hospital is equipped with the latest state of the art equipment for comprehensive investigation and treatment of patients . Lok Nayak Hospital functions as a tertiary referal centre and receives a large number of very complicated cases who are well advanced in the disease process. The doctors , nurses and other staff manning the hospital are experienced professionals dedicated to their job. It has over 1597 commissioned beds in all the medical & surgical specialties. The Hospital deploys highly skilled and trained work force. It continues to be one of the premier teaching hospitals of the GNCT, Delhi and has completed its 75 Yrs. of excellent Health Care Services on 10th Jan 2005. Recognizing the need for additional facilities to match the increasing demand, the hospital is undergoing phased expansion. At the end of the first phase, which is nearing completion, 500 additional beds would be added to the hospital. This increase will augment the services in the Departments of Emergency and casualty, Orthopedics and trauma, obstetrics and Gynecology, Nursing home and radiotherapy (& oncology). The subsequent phase of expansion will augment the outpatient services.

It is centrally located and very near to both old and New Delhi railway stations and big business areas like Connaught Place and Karol Bagh.
