BLK Super Speciality Hospital is a private sector hospital based in New Delhi, India with 650 beds and 17 operation theaters. It was founded by B. L. Kapur (Obstetrician and Gynecologist) on 2 January 1959. It is accredited by the NABH and National Accreditation Board for Testing and Calibration Laboratories and the Joint Commission International. Its campus is spread over 5 acres and is managed by Radiant Life Care Private Limited.
Upon invitation of then Prime Minister of India, Jawaharlal Nehru, Dr. B.L. Kapur formed a 200-bed private hospital. It was inaugurated by Prime Minister Nehru on 2 January 1959. In 2009, the original facility was renovated into a 650-bed tertiary care medical facility by Radiant Life Care Private Limited. Currently, over 150 senior specialties work under various specialty departments.
In September 2013, a team of 40 specialists from the hospital successfully separated a set of Nigerian conjoined twins. In March 2015, a team at the hospital conducted a sleeve gastrectomy which enabled a man from Iraq weighing 300 kilograms to lose over half of his weight in the span of a year. In December 2015, a team of 3 surgeons at the hospital successfully removed an aneurysm (7 cm) from the brain of an elderly woman. The case is notable because aneurysms bigger than 2 cm are classified giant and extremely hard to operate on.
In July 2017, a 45-year old male underwent a liver transplant from a patient who died of cardiac arrest. This was the first successful case of liver transplant from Donation After Cardiac Arrest (DCD), as opposed to a kidney transplant, which had been done previously in India. In the same year, a team of nephrologists, anesthesiologists, and critical care specialists from BLK Hospital assisted the doctors at Muhimbili National Hospital to conduct Tanzaniaâ€™s first kidney transplant on a 30-year old Tanzanian woman.
In April 2018, the cardiothoracic and vascular department of the BLK Hospital carried out a successful heart transplant on a 56-year-old male within 3 hours of harvesting the organ. A green corridor was created to celebrate the achievement. That same year, a Nigerian woman received the rare Osada procedure for a 12-year long adenomyosis of the uterus that affected her spine due to subsisting pain. Again in 2018, a 51-year old Iraqi male successfully received an artificial heart implant at the hospital after his heart was weakened due to gunshot injury in a kidnapping and ransom case. Nearly 18 months later, his original heart resumed functioning.
