LAHORE: The Six story 385-Bed State of the Art Surgical Tower built at the Mayo Hospital affiliated with King Edward Medical University at a cost of Rs. 2.66 Billion was formally commissioned last month. This most modern state of the art surgical tower will be a Jewel in the Crown of Mayo Hospital Lahore and yet another gift from the PML-N Government for the people of the province.  Former Chief Minister of Punjab Mian Shahbaz Sharif who has written history in the development work in all sectors in the province formally inaugurated it on May 18th 2018 and appreciated the health department for ensuring timely and qualitative construction of the project.

Imaging department at the Surgical Tower has an MRI, CT scan, facilities for angiography and mammography, digital fluoroscopy besides Doppler Ultrasound. Starting from registration of patients to investigations, drug treatment is all fully computerized. It has digitalized Male and Female Wards. Operation Theatre suite has eighteen OTs and most modern Central Sterilization Department for sterilization of instruments, equipment and laundry. Adequate infection control measures have also been undertaken to enhance safety of patients.

Yet another unique feature of the Surgical Tower is said to be the 91-bed Burns Unit which is equipped with special beds and it also has an Intensive Care Unit. The Burns Unit is also equipped with most modern equipment to measure body burns area and management of the severely burnt cases which it is hoped will go a long way in saving numerous precious lives. Mian Shahbaz Sharif was full of praise for the medical, nursing and paramedic’s staff as well as the Information Technology people working at the Surgical Tower for their devotion and dedication. He termed this Surgical Tower as a New World in any healthcare facility in Pakistan in the public sector in particular. To ensure adequate security, the surgical tower has a round the clock surveillance system.
