GWADAR, Nov 1 (Gwadar Pro) - In a game-changing health sector development in Gwadar, the GDA hospital is set to become the Indus Hospital, a high and quality name and position in the field of social service and health in the country, on 1st November (Tuesday). A formal ceremony to hand over GDA hospital to Indus Hospital is to take place on the same day.
Chief Secretary Balochistan Abdul Aziz Uqaili and Gwadar Development Authority (GDA) Mujeeb ur Rehman Qambrani inked an agreement under the guidelines of Chief Minister Balochistan Mir Abdul Quddus Bizenjo.
With the transformation of the GDA hospital into the Indus Hospital, the people of Gwadar who have been lacking quality health facilities over the decades will receive free health services. This development will put an end to the health trauma for locals of Gwadar as earlier they had to cover miles of distance to reach Karachi to get medical attention and aid. In most emergency cases, families had to see the deaths of their loved ones on the way to Karachi from Gwadar.
The new health facility will also help reduce health bills because a whopping expense that would have had to be spent on transportation and travelling costs will be cut to almost zero.
Now all the high-quality and modern treatment facilities of the Indus Hospital Karachi will be available free of cost at the Indus Hospital Gwadar.
This institute will be the first and only hospital of its kind in Balochistan where the best doctors and paramedical staff of Karachi will be present to serve day and night with modern medical equipment.
It consists of 70 beds while Pak China Friendship Hospital under construction will consist of 150 beds and will be a state-of-the-art and international standard hospital.
