Three new health-related projects in Lahore were officially founded today by former Punjab Chief Minister Usman Buzdar, including an Emergency Tower and a Trauma Center of Services Hospital.
The former chief minister stated in a statement that the construction of the new Emergency Tower and Trauma Center of Services Hospital would cost around Rs. 5 billion, with the addition of 800 new beds for patients as a result of the project.
As Usman Bazdar pointed out, the Trauma Center and the new Emergency Block will both be equipped with state-of-the-art medical facilities, and both projects have been planned with the rising population of Lahore in mind.
Aside from that, Buzdar also set the foundation stone for the Hazrat Hameed-ud-Din Hakim Surgical Complex Sheikh Zayed Medical College and Hospital, which was dedicated on this occasion.
Meanwhile, the caretaker Chief Minister has also set the foundation stone for a pilot project at Zahir Pir, Rahim Yar Khan, which would serve as a model for future projects. At Zahir Pir, a medical center will be established as part of this project.
Usman Bazdar demanded that these three projects be completed as quickly as possible and stated that the Punjab government has allocated the highest funding in the province’s history to the upgrading of the healthcare system.
He further stated that citizens of Punjab have been provided with a Health Card, which is a Rs 400 billion program and the first of its kind in the country.
