A study has been performed to investigate the ambient air quality in hospital environment at Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College & Hospital Aligarh Muslim University Aligarh. Seven locations in the surrounding of JNMC & Hospital were selected to determine the concentration of major pollutants such as Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2). Sulphur Dioxide(SO2), and Suspended Particulate Matter (SPM). The outdoors are prone to high RSPM concentration due to prevailing urban air quality of Aligarh city and heavy traffic movement at medical road nearby the Hospital. The concentration of SO2 in the hospital environment ranges from 2.91 µg/m³ to 28.39 µg/m³ and NO2 concentration at all locations varies from 1.87 µg/m³ to 35.06 µg/m³.
