Speaking at the inauguration ceremony, Imran Khan had said “construction of a state of the art cancer hospital in Peshawar was his dream which has now come true”.
Located in Hayatabad area of provincial capital, the eight-storey hospital will have 20 chemotherapy beds, six emergency room beds, 12 admission beds, two intensive care units beds, radiology services including mammography, plain radiology and ultrasonography and a pathology laboratory.
In the first phase, the hospital will provide X-ray, CT scan, MRI, chemotherapy and pathological services to the patients that will be followed by radiation services in the second phase, planned by 2015, and surgery after one year.
This is the second such facility built by Imran Khan led Shaukat Khanum Memorial Trust after the PTI chief’s mother died of cancer. The cricketer-turned politician inaugurated the first cancer hospital in Lahore in 1994.
