One of the main goals of Pakistan Children’s Heart Foundation is the establishment of a 125-bedded specialized children’s heart hospital and research institute in Lahore, Pakistan. This state-of-the-art hospital will not only be the leading institution in the country for the treatment of heart-related problems in children, but it will also serve as a centre of excellence and training for the whole region.
In an effort to further improve and augment the current paediatric cardiac healthcare infrastructure in Pakistan, PCHF had set out on a mission to build Pakistan’s first dedicated Children’s Heart Hospital and Research Institute. The ground-breaking for this historic project was done in Lahore on 08th May, 2020. The ground-breaking was performed by our board member Mr. Misbah Ul Haq. Hospital construction has been divided into 2 phases; the hospital will be operational after phase 1. Phase 1 will comprise of a five-level structure with 1 basement, 1 ground floor and 3 upper floors.
We expect phase 1 to be completed over a period of 18 months from when construction begins, at a total cost of PKR 3.5 Billion. Projected cost for completion of Phase 1 of the hospital is PKR 1.25 Billion. We expect to be operational with 75 beds after completion of phase 1.
The hospital will be operational with a capacity of 75 beds after the completion of phase I.
