A sub-committee of Senate’s Functional Committee on Government Assurances has directed the CDA to allocate a plot for the construction of a full-fledged hospital in the federal capital in consultation with the Ministry of Health.
A meeting of the sub-committee of Senate’s Functional Committee on Government Assurances was held to examine the proposal of the Ministry of Health for construction of new vertical hospital in Argentina Park.
In view of the discussions the sub-committee was of the view that the federal capital was in dire need of a modern and well-equipped hospital to cater the needs of the people as the other hospitals were over-burdened.
The committee was given a detailed appraisal of the various options by the Ministry of Health and CDA. However, it directed the CDA to submit a detailed report within 40 days so that the committee could finalise its recommendation and necessary action. The meeting held under the Convenorship of Senator Ch. Muhammad Anwar Bhinder was also attended by Senator Muhammad Talha Mahmood, besides secretary Health and senior officials of the Federal Government Services Hospital and CDA.
