Rawalpindi: With a capacity of treating 150 thousand children yearly, Asia’s largest children’s eye hospital has opened its doors for patients in Rawalpindi.
The project was designed to help patients and their families, improve efficiency, and provide high-quality care; it was completed on time with a one-billion-rupee investment, and it will be able to serve 500 OPD patients per day, according to Al-Shifa Trust Executive Director Brig (Retired) Rizwan Asgar.
He told the reporters here that, in addition to caring for 500 OPD patients, experts may undertake fifty difficult procedures in a single day. According to Rizwan Asgar, this will be Asia’s largest hospital in terms of capacity, and it will be built under the supervision of the trust’s president, Major General (Retired) Rehmat Khan.
He stated that we would provide the finest care and therapies for children while also playing a key role in research, for which benefactors and funders are grateful. “We have employed 16 eye experts, and all of the surgery rooms have been outfitted with the most up-to-date technology and are linked to the operating room,” he continued.
The children’s cancer section, the wards, and doctor’s chambers are all designed to western standards, while the cafeteria, waiting spaces, and private rooms are all built to international standards, he added. He stated that the general public should not be afraid to visit the hospital because 80 percent of patients are treated for free, and that those who can afford it should not fly to the United States or the United Kingdom because they would receive equivalent quality treatments in this facility.
