Bahawal Victoria Hospital (BVH) located in Bahawalpur, Pakistan, started functioning as a Civil Hospital with an outdoor department and a dispensary and an operating theatre in 1876. In 1906 this health unit was named Bahawal Victoria Hospital. Now it is a hub of clinical expertise both in specialties as well as in sub-specialties with a multitude of patients visiting the hospital. In 1952, a benevolent extension of Nursing School was brought about with an anticipation to render rash and prompt basic health amenities. Classes leading to L.S.M.F were also started in 1956. Its nexus with Quaid e Azam Medical College (QAMC) in 1970 has transformed it into one of the largest tertiary care facilities in the province of Punjab.
It is now a 1,600-bedded, fully equipped, tertiary-care hospital with all medical and surgical specialities, serving large number of patients in the South Punjab. It is facilitating undergraduate medical students of QAMC, nursing students of allied nursing school, paramedics and a large number of post-graduate trainees.
