PESHAWAR: The prime minister (PM) Imran Khan, in his personal capacity on Friday, appealed to his cancer hospital’s supporters and donors to donate generously so that the two existing hospitals can continue to treat ever-increasing number of cancer patients free of charge; and so as to allow the new hospital in Karachi to open its doors to patients in December 2023, as planned.

According to a press release, the premier visited Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre (SKMCHRC) in Peshawar and inaugurated the newly established operating room suite and the intensive care unit (ICU).

The opening of these state-of-the-art facilities marked the completion of the third and final phase in the commissioning of SKMCHRC in Peshawar, thus equipping the hospital with diagnostic and treatment facilities for cancer under one roof.

“Delighted to visit SKMCHRC in Peshawar today to inaugurate newly completed operating room suite and the ICU” adding “The opening of these state-of-the-art facilities at the hospital marks completion of final phase in commissioning of SKMCHRC in Peshawar which had opened in 2015,” PM Khan remarked.

He concluded, “This means SKMCHRC in Peshawar now offers all diagnostic and treatment facilities for cancer under one roof, for people of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP), Islamabad and northern Pakistan” adding “SKMCHRC in Lahore opened in 1994. Since over 30 percent of all patients seen in Lahore came from KP and Afghanistan we decided to establish the Peshawar SKMCHRC.”
