Authorities with the District Health Authority in Rawalpindi have asked the Punjab government to release funds for the installation of elevators at Wah General Hospital, Urdu Point reported in May. Health CEO Dr. Faiza Kanwal said that elevators are needed for the smooth functioning of the hospital, adding that patients and staff have been facing severe difficulty due to the absence of this basic facility. Kanwal reports that the deputy commissioner’s office has sent a summary to the Punjab government for the release of INR60.73 million (US$833,000) to execute the project. “A 100-bed hospital was set up to provide best health facilities to the residents of Wah, Taxila, for which the Pakistan Ordnance Factories Wah had provided 96 kanals (4,500 ft2) of land free-of-cost,” she said. She said more than 200 employees, including nine specialists, nine medical officers, seven women medical officers, three dental surgeons and other para-medical staff were rendering services in the hospital. She added that 11 departments are functioning in the hospital to provide quality health facilities to the residents of Wah, Taxila, and adjoining districts.
