Punjab Caretaker Government Announces Renovation Plans for Holy Family Hospital
Rawalpindi: In a significant development, the Punjab caretaker government has announced an ambitious plan to revamp the Holy Family Hospital in Rawalpindi. The decision underscores the government’s commitment to enhancing healthcare infrastructure and services in the region.
Commissioner Liaquat Ali Chattha presided over a crucial meeting at the Commissioner’s Office to deliberate on the hospital’s refurbishment. Key stakeholders, including Rawalpindi Medical University (RMU) Vice-Chancellor Professor Dr. Mohammad Umar, Superintendent Engineer Building Khalid Azim, HFH Medical Superintendent Dr. Ijaz Ahmed, and other officials, were in attendance.
The primary objective of this initiative is to bring government hospitals on par with their private counterparts by providing modern facilities and improving overall patient care. To facilitate this endeavor, specialized management committees have been established, chaired by Commissioner Chattha.
Commissioner Chattha emphasized the importance of ensuring that the renovation renders Holy Family Hospital a state-of-the-art healthcare facility for at least a decade. A rigorous timeline has been set to meet this goal, with design proposals expected within two days for committee review by August 25.
The renovation project encompasses two phases, addressing old and new hospital blocks. Upgrades will contain floor and wall treatments, paintwork, door and window refurbishments, enhancements to nursing stations, restroom facilities, electrical systems, and an overall facelift. Additionally, provisions for specialized washrooms catering to disabled patients will be incorporated.
