The Bilqees Sarwar Hospital to offer low-cost access to medical treatments.
The Bilqees Sarwar Foundation, the family-run charity funded by NRS International, has inaugurated the Bilqees Sarwar Hospital, which will provide affordable healthcare to those most in need in the local Lahore community.
The Bilqees Sarwar Hospital is located within NRS International’s factory premises of H. Sheikh Noor-ud-Din & Sons (HSNDS) on 27km off Ferozpur Road. Open from 9am to 3pm, Monday to Saturday, the hospital will give walk-in patients access to general physicians, optometrists, fully equipped wards and laboratories, and will offer specialist eye treatments and laser vision correction, amongst other medical services. The hospital aims to accommodate as many patients as possible, at affordable subsidised rates.
The inauguration ceremony was attended by the Sarwar family, doctors, medical practitioners, distinguished guests and factory employees. Following the ceremony, the hospital opened its doors and began to receive its very first patients.
“Over the past few years, we have renewed our commitment to public health initiatives. Through the Bilqees Sarwar Hospital we are now able to provide the newest technology at highly subsidized rates to the HSNDS employees and community members,” said Mr. Farhan Sarwar, Founder of the Bilqees Sarwar Foundation. “We are humbled to support our Pakistani brothers and sisters.”
Driven by NRS International’s Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives, the Bilqees Sarwar Hospital is the latest charity project launched in collaboration with HSNDS, one of Lahore’s largest employers of skilled factory workers, including women.
