Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, a leading health centre in the city, will be the standby medical facility during the Bush visit.

"US officials inspected our facilities, found our services to their satisfaction and issued a letter designating us as the standby hospital for the US President and other dignitaries," said SK Sama, chairman of the hospital.

"We have reserved two rooms exclusively for that purpose," Sama, who also officiates as the hospital's medical director, said.

Hospital officials said that Sir Ganga Ram Hospital was the official medical facility for the US Embassy. "Whenever dignitaries come from the US, we make special arrangements for them," a spokesperson for the hospital said.
