KARACHI: Hamdard Pakistan inaugurated first-of-its-kind ‘Hamdard Regimental Therapy Centre and Matab’, digital clinic at junction of Shahrah-e-Quadeen and Shahrah-e-Faisal. This initiative aims to broaden reach of Hamdard’s medical facilities, offering cost-effective and proven treatments to larger population. Sadia Rashid President of Hamdard Pakistan, graced inaugural event as chief guest and officially inaugurated centre by cutting ribbon.

Sadia Rashid highlighted expanded scope of medical services of Hamdard Pakistan. “Addition of this modern digital Matab, amidst existing network of 35 Hamdard Matabs across 31 cities is deemed crucial given rising health challenges in nation coupled with insufficient treatment facilities. Residents of Defense Clifton, PECHS and Mehmoodabad had long expressed need for a nearby Matab to address their medical concerns. Considering Shahrah-e-Faisal’s central location, this digital Matab at this junction is expected to serve as convenient healthcare facility for local population,” she said.

She said that new Matab features state-of-the-art computerized management system for storing patients’ medical history, eliminating need for them to visit to repurchase prescribed medicines. Patients can conveniently order their prescriptions from home. One more unique offering of digital Matab is cupping therapy, for which trained and experienced staff have been deployed.

As per environment-friendly practices, Sadia Rashid along with other guests planted plants outside green belt. Navaid-ul-Zafar senior Trustee of Hamdard Pakistan, Fatema Munir Ahmed Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Farrukh Imdad Director General of Hamdard Foundation Pakistan, Professor Dr. Hakim Abdul-Hanan, Brig.
