Dayanand Medical College & Hospital - DMC & H

Today the name of Dayanand Medical College & Hospital (DMC & H) Ludhiana has become identical with excellence in patient care & medical education where the emphasis is on providing super specialty services. An imposing complex of the hospital buildings, situated at Tagore Nagar, Ludhiana in the midst of beautiful surroundings, presents the look of an admirable monument.

Very few people knew that in 1936, management of the school was handed over to the Arya Samaj, Saban Bazar, Ludhiana, under the aegis of Arya Pratinidhi Sabha, Punjab. A separate Managing Body nominated by the Managing Committee of Arya High School, Ludhiana managed the Medical School. It was shifted to its own building (now, Dayanand Medical College & Hospital, College Campus, Ludhiana) in 1937.

The medical school was recognized for LSMF (Licentiate of the Punjab State Medical Faculty) in 1938 and also for the running hospital attached to it. The following year, the Managing Body decided that the Ludhiana Medical School should, in future, be called “Arya Medical School” and the hospital attached to it “Dayanand Hospital”.

It was only in the year 1964 that, consistent with the policy of the Government, the Arya Medical School flowered into a full-fledged MBBS College, which came to be known as Dayanand Medical College. The management of this college was taken over by a galaxy of prominent people of Ludhiana, who formed an organization known as the “Managing Society of Dayanand Medical College & Hospital, Ludhiana”, a minority institution and Late Shri H.R.Dhanda, a prominent industrialist of the town, became its Founder-President.
