Maryam initiates field hospitals project to deliver healthcare to people’s doorsteps

CM lays foundation for Nawaz Sharif IT City in Lahore

LAHORE: Punjab Chief Minister Maryam Nawaz has launched a project to set up field hospitals in order to provide healthcare services directly to the people’s homes.

During the inauguration ceremony in Lahore on Wednesday, the chief minister expressed her satisfaction that the goal she shared with former Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif of bringing healthcare to people’s doorsteps has been achieved.

Maryam announced the opening of 32 field hospitals across the province, with the first one being established in Bahawalpur. She mentioned that these hospitals will mainly cater to villages and remote areas that lack access to healthcare facilities.

She also highlighted the services that will be available at the field hospitals, including outpatient departments (OPDs), immunization services for newborns, maternity services, surgical facilities, and the presence of lady health workers.

The CM reiterated her government’s commitment to ensuring the availability of health services throughout the province, mentioning that several field hospitals have been set up within six months since she took office in Punjab.

In a subtle reference to the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party’s use of containers, Maryam stated that containers were previously used for causing violence and destruction, but now they will be repurposed as platforms for providing medical assistance to the people.

CM Maryam encouraged critics of her initiatives, especially those who scrutinize her videos, to actively participate in public service. She attributed the inception of the field hospitals project to Nawaz Sharif’s forward-thinking leadership and expressed her dedication to following his example.
