PAD has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Indus Hospital

The Pakistan Association Dubai (PAD) in collaboration with Indus Hospital of Pakistan recently organised an event under the theme of "Giving back to the community" on its premises at the Pakistan Auditorium in Oud Metha.

PAD has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Indus Hospital to provide affordable healthcare facilities to the community in Dubai.

As part of the MoU, both parties will help towards establishing a mechanism of importing low cost medicine from Pakistan for the needy patients at the upcoming Pakistan Medical Centre, with the support of local authorities in UAE.

The two have partnered for PAD's future community project of Pakistan Medical Centre, a part of PAD's landmark project called the Pakistan Center which will be a first of its kind, not for profit multi specialty centre in GCC. Supported by the Dubai Health Authority and the Community Development Authority, the centre will be built in the next 18 months and will be open to all nationalities.

Indus Hospital has been serving the community in Pakistan for the last 10 Years with their motto "Quality Care - Free of Cost". The hospital is the country's first paperless and 100% cashless, state-of-the-art, tertiary care hospital that treats over 145,000 patients per month with 6,000 procedures. Monthly 9,200 patients get admitted in the Indus Hospital and all medical services including high-end surgical procedures are not only provided indiscriminately to everyone in need, they are rendered absolutely free of cost with integrity as well.

"As an extension of their office, Indus Hospital has been licensed by the International Humanitarian City Dubai in 2016 and this has made the collaboration with us," Dr Faisel Ikram General Secretary PAD told Khaleej Times.

Welcoming Indus Hospital CEO Dr Abdul Bari Khan and his team, Dr Faisel said: "As a Pakistani working abroad, we have strong feelings of doing something for the country. We are really impressed and moved by the high level of commitment from the doctors and staff of Indus Hospital"

"Indus Hospital will help in establishing the electronic medical record at the Pakistan Medical Centre, alongside giving expertise in administrative set up of the centre. Both parties will also work towards establishing a mechanism of exchanging medical expertise," Dr Faisel said.
