The ratio of patients availing free healthcare services through Sehat Sahulat Programe in Mardan Medical Complex (MMC) reached 60 percent recording 45 percent increase in the span of just seven months, claimed an official here on Sunday. Medical Director MMC Professor Dr Imad Hameed said the target was achieved due to adopting an effective strategy and relentless efforts of the hospital administration and concerned staff.

He said that the ratio of patients had been provided treatment and diagnostic services through Sehat Sahat Programme was just 15 percent in February last when the new administration took over the charge of the hospital.

He said that the milestone was achieved due to a number of steps taken in this regard including setting up of a Sehat Sahulat Plus secretariat, starting procedures and treatment services in new specialities like Neurosurgery, Orthopedic, radiology (MRI, CT Scan) major and minor surgeries, bounding the heads of units to ensure maximum possible admissions on Sehat Sahulat Plus, bringing changes in the existing system, better planning, creating awareness among the masses and resolve of the Board of Governors and hospital administration.
