Lahore to get its first-ever government cancer hospital

In a significant development for Lahore, the city is poised to receive its first government cancer hospital, a decision made by the caretaker Chief Minister of Punjab, Mohsin Naqvi. During his visit to Manawan Hospital, he not only assessed the proposed site for the cancer hospital but also inspected the existing hospital building.

Emphasizing the need for a cancer hospital in Lahore, catering to its vast population of 14 million, Naqvi gave orders to transform Manawan Hospital into a dedicated cancer treatment center. The move aims to provide accessible and quality cancer care to the people of Lahore and the surrounding areas.

During his visit, the Chief Minister led a meeting at Manawan Hospital to review the progress made in establishing the cancer hospital. This step signifies a commitment to addressing the growing healthcare needs, particularly in the field of cancer treatment.

Furthermore, Professor Dr. Muhammad Al-Fareed Zafar, the Principal of Amiruddin Medical College, has taken steps to oversee the upgradation of Lahore General Hospital’s emergency department. Professor Khizr Hayat Gondal has been appointed as the head of the committee responsible for this initiative, comprising Dr. Javaid Mumtaz, Dr. Lyla Shafique, Naseem Khaliq, Muhammad Ali, and Zafar Mukhtar.

These efforts reflect a comprehensive approach to enhancing healthcare infrastructure and services in Lahore, benefiting the community and improving access to medical care for all.
