It has been 41 years, when the concept of creating a superspeciality tertiary care centre in Lucknow was thought of. The foundation stone of Sanjay Gandhi Post Graduate Institute of Medical Sciences, Lucknow was laid on 14th December 1980 by the then President of India, Shri Neelam Sanjeeva Reddy. The first phase of the institute was initiated in late 1982. Patient care and academic work commenced in the year 1988. Since then the institute is working consistently towards imparting best education to its students, providing best treatment and care to patients and making innovations in the area of clinical research and techniques.
