The Indus Hospital Karachi

The Indus Hospital is a tertiary care multidisciplinary hospital that was constructed starting from 2004 and opened its door for the patients in July 2007. It is located in the heart of Korangi, one of the densely populated areas in Karachi with a population of around 18 million. It is the first paperless hospital in the country; the hospital has an e-cardiology system.

The unique feature of the hospital is that it is privately run, but offers services completely free of charge. The idea of a ‘free public hospital’ was conceived by four medical students after they visited the 1987 Bohri Bazaar bomb blast site and experienced much frustration by the limited capacity of the nearby Civil Hospital Karachi’s emergency ward. “Their dream came true exactly 20 years later when the Indus Hospital was established in 2007

They unanimously pledged their support to make a difference to the healthcare situation in Pakistan, and as their efforts came to fruition, The Indus Hospital officially began operations in the year 2007. It was the country’s first paperless and 100% cashless, state-of-the-art, tertiary care hospital. All medical services including high-end surgical procedures were not only provided indiscriminately to everyone in need, they are rendered absolutely Free of Cost with integrity as well.

Facilities

The hospital itself serves mainly the adjoining areas of Korangi and Landhi with a population of 2.5 million in its 5 kilometre radius. But it also receives patients from the rest of Karachi. This hospital is governed and funded by a philanthropic foundation. Indus Hospital mainly operates on donations from friends and supporters of its services. It provides free treatment including some medicines. The phase one of this five billion rupee project has been completed and made functional with 150-bed in-patient accommodation. In 2014, Indus Hospital treats 1500 patients every day for free.

Presently the services that are being offered in outpatient or inpatient categories include nephrology, urology, cardiology, cardiac surgery, general medicine, general surgery, orthopaedics, ENT, infectious diseases and pain management. The hospital is well equipped with an angiography suite, dialysis unit, lithotripsy suite, advanced interventional radiology setup, molecular lab, and a bio-safety level 3 (BSL3), tuberculosis lab, besides the conventional necessities of a tertiary care hospital.

First paperless hospital in Pakistan

It is the first ever paperless hospital established in Pakistan with a very user-friendly hospital management information system that was developed in-house. All of the medical records including history, examination, investigations, radiological images & reports, electrocardiographies, dialysis sessions, operative notes, nursing record like fluid balance charting and vital signs monitoring, etc. are recorded directly on to the computers with no element of hard copies. “E-cardiology at the Indus Hospital uses text and multimedia messages to transfer information.” Indus Hospital aspires to expand to a 1500-bed hospital over 21 acres of land.

Free artificial limbs facility launched

In March 2015, a state-of the-art rehabilitation centre for handicapped people was launched. This facility was developed with the help of International Committee of Red Cross and Chal Foundation (Walk Foundation). Between 2000 and 2500 artificial limbs will be manufactured and fitted to patients free of cost every year. The hospital will also counsel and train disabled persons.

The hospital has a Research Center with its own field workers along with a core team of epidemiologists and biostatisticians. The center is already working in collaboration with international universities and is quite capable of executing community outreach programs and then precisely analyzing the gathered data. It is also equipped with video conference facilities enabling direct communication with universities and research centers worldwide. The hospital has full access to the National Digital Library (N.D.L.) set up under the aegis of The Higher Education Commission of Pakistan (H.E.C.). Through this program 45,000 online books and 23,000 journals are available to faculty, researchers and trainees at the Indus Hospital.
