CM orders to start work on 235-bed children hospital in Bahawalpur

Staff Report

LAHORE: (March 11, 2019): Punjab Chief Minister Sardar Usman Buzdar has ordered construction of a children hospital in Bahawalpur with the help of Korean development agency. The CM ordered immediate implementation on the project.

The children hospital is of utmost importance to the people of South Punjab, especially residents of Bahawalpur.  The project has already faced a prolonged delay of over two years.

With the help of the Korean development agency, the provincial government aimed to establish a 235-bed state-of-the-art children hospital in Bahawalpur. It will provide intensive care, neonates, general and specialized healthcare services to the children of Bahawalpur and South Punjab.

The authorities also allocated Rs 750 million for the project in the FY 2015-16 budget. However, these funds were later diverted to some politically significant projects and the children healthcare initiative was shelved, the chief minister added.
