Message From Executive Director
It is a matter of pride and joy for me to be the custodian of the oldest Postgraduate Medical Education and Research Centre of the country at the launch of the first comprehensive website of Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre (JPMC).Over the years, the people who have worked in JPMC have upheld the esteem of the illustrious name of the Quaid, through tireless work and utter dedication. It is no surprise that the community this hospital has served, has rallied round JPMC and supported it in many aspects of its operations and service delivery formally, as well as informally. Consequently, JPMC has proved itself to be an excellent model of public/private partnership in higher medical education, research and health services delivery.
The Journey of Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre (JPMC)
The journey of Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre (JPMC) started in 1930 in Medical Corps Hospital, meant for medical aid to military personnel exclusively. In 1942 it was re-named as the British General Hospital and remained as such till 1947; a 100 bedded hospital with all basic necessary facilities.After the creation of Pakistan in 1947, the father of the nation, Quaid-e-Azam Muhammad Ali Jinnah was requested to grant approval to lend his name to the hospital, which he graciously accorded, with the condition that it be opened for the public. Thus the Medical Corps Hospital/British General Hospital was named as Jinnah Central Hospital (JCH).
JPMC declares its mission to:
Improve education and healthcare in Pakistan by imparting quality education and care.
Promotion of research and generation of knowledge and skill development.
Provide quality healthcare to all irrespective of ability to pay.
Explore avenues for resource generation.
