According to official documents made available to ProPakistani, the federal government has proposed allocating a sizeable sum of more than Rs. 7.5 billion for the construction of a cancer hospital in the federal capital.

According to the proposal, the Central Development Working Party (CDWP) will be asked to approve the plan for building the cancer hospital. The Ministry of Health will work with and support the construction of the hospital in Islamabad.

The documents state that the hospital will serve about 7,000 patients a year in its initial phase of operation. In a period of five to ten years, as the hospital expands its services, this capacity is anticipated to rise to sixteen thousand patients.

It is anticipated that the cancer hospital, which has 200 beds, will be finished in two years. The documents also note that a sizeable portion of the funds allocated will be used to buy crucial medical equipment required for the operation of the hospital.

The documents also disclose that it is anticipated that furniture will cost more than Rs. 200 million to be purchased.

The opening of this cancer hospital aims to give cancer patients in the nation’s capital specialized care, diagnosis, and treatment. It demonstrates the government’s dedication to enhancing the region’s healthcare system and addressing the rising demand for high-quality cancer services.
