Advancing Healthcare Delivery by Expanding RTEH

Infrastructure Development Authority of the Punjab (IDAP) is advancing healthcare delivery by renovating and modernizing hospitals in Punjab. IDAP aims to provide the best healthcare possible by offering medical facilities that combine advanced, contemporary infrastructure with the newest medical technologies.

One of IDAP’s main projects is to extend the Recep Tayyip Erdogan Hospital (RTEH) ­into a 225 bed general hospital. Gifted by the Turkish Government, RTEH was established to provide free healthcare services. Located on DG Khan Road, Muzaffargarh, RTEH started operating in July 2014 with 60 beds. Within 12 months of its inception, 40 new beds were added.

IDAP aims to provide efficient and effective healthcare facilities to the population around Muzaffargarh by upgrading RTEH. The RTEH expansion project includes building a teaching hospital, medical college, nursing college and other amenities on 113 acres of land next to the existing hospital. In the first phase, IDAP is working on expanding and improving the hospital building and in the construction of an energy center.

The hospital will be outfitted with cutting-edge medical equipment including technologies and tools for anesthesia, dialysis, monitoring, laboratory, sterilization, dental procedures, endoscopy, waste management, refrigeration, radiology and cardiac and neuro surgeries. Machines for the ICU and urology departments will also be added for the benefit of those seeking healthcare services in the area.    

Innovative infrastructure coupled with the latest health technologies and equipment will ensure the public receives medical care of the highest quality. The hospital will provide free of cost medical services to all patients who will also be provided with free meals during their stay. IDAP will continue to work hard to provide projects and services of the highest standards to contribute to the betterment of the lives of those in Punjab.
