I have always believed in the potential of the Pakistani people. It is with this confidence that our teams have seen the successful completion of several projects. I had been aware of the need for a top grade hospital in our region for some time. It was the devastating earthquake of 2005, which gave me the real stimulus to go all out in this venture. At that time the unfinished building was handed over to The Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences to use as an emergency Medical Centre for the earthquake patients. The development of a unique design, incorporating the very best and the most up to date facilities took some time. The main thrust to achieve this challenging task was the sincere desire to make available cutting edge technology for a sizeable number of people who go overseas for treatment and to a greater majority who cannot afford such a privilege. It gives me great satisfaction to see that our dreams are seeing the light of day. It will give me even greater joy to see scores of patients from within Pakistan and from overseas benefiting from the facilities provided here. Every effort has been made to create an ambiance befitting a modern healthcare institution. No expense has been spared to acquire the very best diagnostic and interventional equipment medical science has to offer. With all these essentials, the most important of the ingredients are the staff. We are very fortunate to have recruited a team of well trained and highly experienced professionals from Pakistan and abroad. I would like to pay tribute and extend my heartfelt gratitude to each and every member of my team who have all, worked tirelessly to deliver my vision into a reality.
