The establishment of the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (P.I.M.S)
in Islamabad heralds a bright new era for the citizens of Pakistan,
especially the residents of the Federal Capital.
The plan, conceived in the sixties(1960s), has finally been
implemented. Initially named as the Islamabad Hospital Complex (IHC),
the original site was located within the premises of the National
Institute of Health but was shifted in favour of the present site due
to its central position. In 1975, the Capital Development
Authority (CDA), outlined a plan for the construction of an inpatients
block. Pakistani engineers prepared a master plan by 1978,
envisaging ample room for future alteration and expansion.
