Lady Dufferin Hospital houses a state of the art Out Patient Department (OPD) “ Dr. Faridoon Setna & Maryam Bashir Dawood – Centre of Excellence for Women & Children” that caters to the gynecological and obstetrics needs of the women belonging to the middle and lower socio-economic groups of our society. The new OPD wing was inaugurated in June 2021 and on an average caters to approximately 250 to 300 underprivileged women per day who visit us for gynae, obstetric and other women related health issues.
Along with gynecological and obstetric services the LDH OPD department also offers other multidisciplinary clinics including Diabetology, Pediatrics, Infectious Diseases, Endocrinology, Haematology, Internal Medicine, Family Planning and breast feeding (Lactation Management Program) services. Vaccination services to babies are also extended in collaboration with the Reproductive Health Department of Government of Sindh. LDH was one of the first hospitals to be given the title of a “Baby Friendly Hospital” by the WHO.
