LAHORE/MIRPUR [AJK],  (Parliament Times) :   In pursuit to its commitment to providing improved health care facilities to the employees and their families, WAPDA has set up dialysis centres in three of its hospitals at Lahore, Multan and Gujranwala under Public Private Partnership. Prior to establishing these centres, the patients had to be referred to
government and private hospitals for their dialysis. WAPDA plans to extend dialysis
facility in other WAPDA hospitals across the country in next few months.
Earlier, WAPDA has also established fully equipped Obstetrics Units in its hospitals
at Lahore, Guddu, Gujranwala, Quetta, Hyderabad and Multan. Such Obstetrics
Units will also be set up very soon at WAPDA hospitals located in other parts of the

WAPDA has also started Corona Vaccination as well as admission of Corona
patients in all of its hospitals.

Besides improving its health care system, WAPDA Medical Services has also
started taking feedback from the medical facility holders to address their grievances
and bring betterment in provision of medical facility and services to them. For
making the system transparent and minimizing the role of staff, WAPDA Medical
Services has initiated an online feedback system for indoor admitted patients.
Necessary information relating to online feedback has been displayed at prominent
places in all WAPDA hospitals and dispensaries.

It is worth mentioning that WAPDA provides health facilities through its health care
system across the country not only to WAPDA employees and their families but also
to the employees of Power Distribution Companies, Generation Companies and
National Transmission and Dispatch Company. WAPDA owns as many as 12
hospitals all over the country including one 300- bed hospital at Lahore, nine 50-bed
