The Indus Hospital & Health Network (IHHN) opened the doors of its newly-built, state-of-the-art hospital in Jubilee Town, Lahore, Punjab, Pakistan on June 30, 2021. In 2017, Qarshi Foundation and Naimat Saleem Trust in collaboration with IHHN laid foundations of the QF, NST & SMP Campus. Several known business groups along with individual donors have generously funded for the cause of providing quality healthcare absolutely free of cost to people across Punjab in Pakistan.
The Chief Guest of the ceremony, Honorable Governor Punjab Ch. Muhammad Sarwar, inaugurated the Lahore campus, accompanied by Dr. Abdul Bari Khan, CEO IHHN. ‘IHHN’s journey in Lahore could not have been possible without the continuous support of the selfless donor community of Lahore,’ said Dr. Bari while appreciating the generosity of the people. Several business groups and individual donors came together to make this project a reality to expand the healthcare facilities across Pakistan.
Today, IHHN is one of the largest healthcare networks in Pakistan which is treating more than 400,000 patients every month, without charging them a single penny. Dr. Bari’s dream to treat the ailing humanity became a reality way back in 2007, and he hasn’t stopped since then. The need for quality and free healthcare seemed insatiable. IHHN’s model was replicated in different parts of the country.
The Indus Hospital – QF, NST & SMP Campus will be completed in three phases. June 30th, 2021 marks the soft launch of the hospital’s first phase with OPD and 34 beds being made functional, whereas later in October 2021, bed numbers will be increased to 100 as part of commissioning the first phase completely. In December 2022, further 200 beds will be functional while in December 2023 the hospital will be fully functional with 600 beds. It is estimated that once completely functional, the hospital would be able to serve 1 million patients, annually.
The hospital houses all important faculties and specialties including but not limited to: surgical, pediatric, gynecology, obstetrics, oncology, orthopedic, nephrology, radiology, laboratory, blood center, and eastern medicine.
