Helping Hands of the Future
Medicine is seen as the most revered profession in our country, with doctors and specialists granted the statuses of angels and messiahs. The tragedy of our country is that medical universities and healthcare facilities are few and far in between. The ones that are operating are either unable to accommodate patients or charge exorbitantly.
In these circumstances, Ziauddin has continued to provide top-notch healthcare facilities to the common man. However, there is a common myth attached to them – they charge a lot! Well, that is true only if you seek treatment that has tremendous amounts of overheads attached to it.
It is a private hospital, they cannot afford to bear losses. Rest assured, the treatment and patient responsiveness is unparalleled. The university on the other hand, which started as a medical college has now expanded to various other disciplines. The name Ziauddin has become a valuable asset to not only the Pakistani society but beyond, as evidenced by its division in the United Arab Emirates.
