In the later part of the twentieth century, the likeminded Sikh residents of a very posh locality of Ludhiana, envisioned opening of a hospital for the lesser fortunate groups of the society. They collected a sum of Rs. 8400/- and started a charitable dispensary in the name of Shri Guru Teg Bahadur Sahib. The, then Chief Minister of Punjab, Giani Zail Singh allotted 4000 yards of land for expanding that dispensary to a hospital, which now proudly stands as Guru Teg Bahadur Sahib (C) Hospital, Model Town, Ludhiana.
The hospital commenced operations on Oct.29th 1978 under the guidance of Guru Teg Bahadur Sahib (C) Hospital Society. The management consists of educationationists, humanitarians and visionaries whose purpose is to serve the fellow men with all humility and passion.
From a hospital which started serving with 22 beds, it has grown substantially in terms of infrastructure and services offered. It is now a 250 bedded multispecialty hospital which delivers exemplary service with the help of latest technology in modern science.
Institute of Nursing Education was established in 1989 with a generous donation of Rs.1 lac by Principal S. Surjit Singh Bhatia (Retd. DPI Colleges). This Institute plunged into the field of education with 35 GNM students with the motive of providing employment opportunities to women belonging to the rural areas of Punjab. After more than two decades of being functional, this institution now has a strength of 540 students in GNM, B.Sc.(N) and P.B. B.Sc.(N).
Institute of Nursing Education is situated in a prime neighbourhood in the city of Ludhiana, just opposite of GTBS (C) Hospital. The institute is easily accessible, being merely 2 km away from ISBT and 3.5 km away from the railway station. It is duly recognized by Punjab Nurses Registration Council, Mohali, Baba Farid University of Health Sciences, Faridkot and Indian Nursing Council, New Delhi.
The basic objective of this prestigious institution is to create an environment necessary for the overall growth and development of the students. With the help of a balanced theoretical and practical curriculum, the students acquire working skills and realize their true potential. Students are given ample opportunities to organize and participate in various conferences, seminars and workshops in the state and national level.
With the blessings of Shri Guru Teg Bahadur Sahib Ji and because of the sincere efforts of our hard working management and faculty, this institution has become the primary choice of students from all over North India.
