Usman Buzdar expressed satisfaction over the progress and directed to accelerate work on this institute to be completed with a cost of 2 billion rupees. This 200-bed hospital is a gift for the people as the first phase would be made functional early this year, with 100 beds, he said.
He asserted that the cardiology institute would be completed in time while ensuring high quality as no compromise would be made on high standards of public welfare schemes.
The modern medical facilities would be available to the people of south Punjab, including Balochistan and Sindh. He regretted that the southern part of Punjab was kept deprived of quality healthcare facilities in the past.
