St. Stephen's hospital, Delhi.
In line with their motto, the philosophy of care, compassion and love has been the motivating force of this hospital in all its stages of growth. As late Mrs. Indira Gandhi put it in Sept. 1884 that this hospital, a part of the lives of people of Delhi, has shared their sorrow and joy through out its history right from its inception. The postal Dept. on 25 November 1985 issued a commemorative postage stamp on the centenary of the St. Stephen Hospital,TIS Hazari (1885 to 1985)

Opened on 31 October 1885 as the first hospital for women and children, it was the brain child of non-medical Missionary English Priscilla Winter and her dedicated associates who were pioneers in field work. These dedicated workers wanted to pay particular attention to the underprivileged people and their medical problems. This hospital that was started with well-defined vision and motto went through various stages to achieve the need-based growth and they achieved their goal through the sustained work of a group of dedicated and committed ladies. They started out by distributing medicine on the banks of Yamuna in 1864, then opened a small dispensary  in 1874 in a rented house and  later  a 40 bed hospital in 1885 for women and children in Chandni Chowk, a suburb of Delhi. To take care of additional medical needs, in TIS Hazari in 1909, they opened a 100 bed hospital. In 1976, the hospital became a big one with a capacity of 375 beds. Since 1976, its growth has been phenomenal, thanks to the local communities who patronized the services of this historical hospital exclusively founded by English women for the benefits of native women and children.
St. Stephen's was the first Zanana hospital and the first to introduce pre-natal baby care clinics which were quite helpful to the local communities. It was first to start a Nursing  training program and first to be recognized for post-partum program.
