New Delhi: Al-shifa multi-speciality hospital of 300-bed, Jamia Nagar Okhla is in verge of completion, said CEO of Al-Shifa Hospital, Brig. Zafar.

He said that we are trying our best to complete the construction work of hospital soon but the recent heavy rains in the capital have badly affected the progress in the civil work of hospital as it did other construction in the capital.
The hospital is going to be built in the campus of Dawat Nagar a densely populated area of Muslims. The huge muslim population is due to Jamia Millia Islamia, a central University.

The purpose of establishing the hospital is to provide health care facility to poor people especially muslim community at lowest fees structure which they can afford.
He also said that the biodata of doctors are coming to us and we will soon finalise and appoint them after completion of hospital, said Brig. Zafar.

Al-Shifa Multi-speciality hospital is of Human Welfare Trust under vision 2016 program.
The Al-Shifa hospital will provide all health care facilities like obstetrics and gynecology, pediatrics and neonatology, internal medicine (general medicine) and general surgery. Besides, the hospital will provide specialist consultation in cardiology, orthopedics, gastroenterology, endocrinology, neurology, nephrology, pulmonology, ENT, Dermatology, dental and ophthalmology.

Besides these, hospital will provide other medical services and facility like: Casualty and emergency (24X7), labour delivery suite, neonatal ICU, operation theatres, ICU and surgical ICU, clinical lab, imaging services (CT, X-ray, Ultrasound), diagnostics (ECG, TMT, EEG, EMG, Spirometry etc), consultation room (separate for women), pharmacy, physiotherapy, comfortable waiting areas, accommodation (Deluxe, Single and General).

The hospital will be self-dependent, and so to bear medical expenses of poor patients, there will be a separate organization. That organization will pay the medical cost of such patients to the hospital, said Zafar Ali.

“High-tech medical care has become very expensive, mainly due to the exorbitant prices of imported equipment. It is therefore not possible to offer free treatment for procedures like heart surgery, angioplasty, neurosurgery, laser treatment, and so on. Thus, user charges are necessary, but can be kept reasonable if the services are efficiently utilized and equipments are carefully maintained. Keeping in view of public benefit, the Human Welfare Trust has kept the provision in its plan to provide health care facilities at an affordable cost,” says a brochure of the coming hospital.

“As per the plan, the first phase of Al-Shifa Multi-Specialty Hospital comprising outpatient department, inpatient department accommodating 40 beds and a diagnostic centre which will be completed soon, “said Zafar Ali, The process of purchasing of medical equipments, machineries has already started.
