"For the first time in the city's history, space under a flyover is going to be properly utilised," said Akhtar at the ceremony, adding that more mobile units would be launched below the other flyovers of the city in the future.

The mobile hospital is equipped with all the required first aid equipment along with an electrocardiogram (ECG) facility. Akhtar said such facilities will enable the residents of nearby areas to receive healthcare at a short distance.
