How We Started

The Indus Hospital

The Indus Hospital came into being with the purpose to improve the healthcare environment of Pakistan. Dr. Abdul Bari Khan, founder of The Indus Hospital, worked tirelessly in government-run hospitals of Pakistan and experienced the appalling situation of the helpless patients of Karachi. This inspired him to envision a multi-disciplinary tertiary care hospital that would sustain the philosophy of ‘quality care free-of-cost’.

To support Dr. Bari’s vision, the Islamic Mission Trust donated a non-functioning hospital building in 2005. The building was renovated and made operational for the public in 2007. Starting from only 150 beds in the area of Korangi, Karachi, the hospital has now evolved into Indus Health Network with hospitals and public health outreach clinics spread all across Pakistan. Since its inception, the hospital has religiously followed the model of providing free of charge quality healthcare to everyone who has ever set foot in Indus.
