Introduction

The Department of Cardiology was created as an offshoot of the Department of Medicine in July 1977. Initially the department was located in the Department of Medicine in the Gandhi Ward. It shifted to its present location at Shahmina Road, just across the road from the Emergency & Trauma Centre after a donation from Mr. MA Lari, and is popularly known as the Lari Cardiology Centre. Presently, the Department is headed by Prof. V.S.Narayan, who took over from January 2016. Further donation from BP Halwasiya Foundation paved the way for construction of the present OPD and Administrative complex. Clinical care is provided by the faculty assisted by 24 Senior Residents who are DM (Cardiology) students. New Cardiology Block was recently constructed by the Government and will have cardiac non-invasive facilities, cardiac catheterization Lab and interventional cardiology unit.
