MULTAN: At least 600 more beds are being added in Nishtar Hospital to meet the increasing demand of patients and shortage of beds. Besides, cardiology centre’s emergency block is also being expanded.

This was stated by Punjab Governor Malik Muhammad Rafique Rajwana during his visit to Multan on Monday.

He said the outdoor patient department of kidney centre at Nishtar Hospital had been made operational, while work was being carried out to expand the health facility.

Rafique Rajwana said, “The solid waste management company is removing the garbage three times a day to ensure cleanliness in the city.”
