Hameed Latif Hospital was founded in 1992 as a small 20 bedded hospital to provide maternity services mainly to the middle class. Since then, thanks to the endeavors of the management and support of consultants, it has grown into a major 350+ bed facility catering for all specialties – a creditable tenfold growth achieved in a span of 25 years. Healthcare is considered to be the responsibility of the state, where the Government is expected to provide free healthcare to the populace, irrespective of social status. Unfortunately, because of the paucity of funds, this has not been possible. At present government has allocated and is spending sizable sums of money on developing healthcare infrastructure, but the demand far outstrips the provision. This has opened the way for the private sector to step in and set up hospital facilities at all levels – tertiary, secondary and primary. These private sector initiatives to provide the needy with necessary medical services and facilities are to be lauded.
Hameed Latif Hospital enjoys a unique status, it is located in the city center for easy accessibility and provides services in all major specialties, namely Maternity, Gynae, Paeds, General Surgery and Internal Medicine. It also provides excellent care to emergency patients with its fully equipped ICU and CCU facilities. Other valuable services include Cardiology, Cardiac Surgery, Neurology, Neuro Surgery, Medical Oncology, Orthopedic, plastic surgery and intensive neonatal care.
It gives me great pleasure to extend my good wishes to the management of HLH in all future endeavors and my sincere appreciation to the Chief Executive, Managing & Clinical Directors, and the hospital management for raising the standard of care to the accepted international level. This is indeed a singular distinction. My sincere thanks also go to all workers of the hospital for their dedicated services.
