Dr. B L Kapur, an eminent Obstetrician and Gynaecologist, set up a Charitable Hospital in 1930 at Lahore. In 1947, he moved to post-partition India and set up a Maternity Hospital at Ludhiana. In 1956 on the invitation of the then Prime Minister, Dr. B L Kapur initiated the project for setting up a 200 bed hospital in Delhi. The hospital was inaugurated by the Prime Minister, Pt. Jawahar Lal Nehru on 2nd January, 1959. By 1984, when the hospital celebrated its Silver Jubilee, it was an expanding hospital well on its way to becoming Delhi’s premier multispecialty institute. Services offered included General Surgery, Ophthalmology, ENT, Dentistry, Pulmonology, Intensive Care and Orthopedics, apart from mother & child care. A factor of much importance to the hospital was the health of the community. Enthusiastic doctors held camps and public health talks to improve the status of community health in the area. In the late 1990s, the Trustees of the hospital felt the need to upgrade it to a tertiary care hospital and tied up with Radiant Life Care Private Limited to re-develop and manage the facility. Today, a modern state-of-the-art tertiary care hospital has come up in place of the old hospital. It is one of the biggest stand alone private Hospitals in the National Capital Region today. Vision: To create a patient-centric, tertiary healthcare organization focused on non-intrusive quality care utilizing leading edge technology with a human touch. Mission: Achieve Professional Excellence in delivering Quality care. Ensure care with Integrity and Ethics. Push frontiers of care through Research and Education. Adhere to National and Global Standards in Healthcare. Provide Quality healthcare to all Sections of Society. A passion for healing… At BLK, we are passionate about delivering the highest standard of healthcare. Be it the finest Doctors, cutting-edge medicine, state-of-the-art infrastructure or nursing with a smile. When you are passionate about healing the lives that have been entrusted to us, nothing is too big or small to ignore. The hospital is proud to be the trusted healthcare provider of the community it is located in, and has instituted extensive measures to benefit the communities it is associated with. The hospital has instituted the EWS scheme for those who can ill-afford the cost of medical expenses. Such patients are offered free treatment at the hospital. 10% of our beds are reserved at all times for the EWS scheme so that such patients can be admitted to the hospital easily. The hospital conducts a free OPD for two hours every morning in various super-specialties where senior consultants provide professional consultation to the masses, free of cost. This facility was instituted as a practice by our founder and has been continued as a service we are proud of. Hundreds of patients have benefitted from this service over the past years. Free camps are conducted every fortnight for the general public. These camps are held at community halls, parks, colleges, premises of social organizations and educational institutes. We understand that the pressures of the rat-race and the stress of corporate lifestyle is a detriment to health. To spread the message of wellness and prevention, free health talks and screening camps are conducted at premises of the hospital as well as at offices of many corporate and PSU organizations. Senior specialists, psychologists, nutritionists and physiotherapists are part of our corporate wellness service. Free health lectures are also conducted at schools and educational institutes, along with residential localities, to spread awareness about health issues that affect the children and the elderly, such as childhood obesity and rheumatism. These talks also aim at informing the public about preventive measures during epidemics and seasonal diseases such as swine flu and dengue. We believe that it is the responsibility of the medical fraternity to update their knowledge and skills in order to provide their patients with the best treatment possible. The hospital conducts regular free Continuing Medical Education programs for doctors as well as training programs for nurses and paramedics.
