LRBT opened up its new hospital in Odigram, Swat on September 26, 2013 with construction work of the hospital building being completed. The primary reason for accelerating the pace of work was to be able to provide service to the local populace and the catchment area in the shortest possible time.
LRBT Odigram Hospital is a 64 bed facility with the capacity of seeing 400 patients in the OPD and restoring the vision of 60 blind/ visually impaired people through Sight Restoration surgeries on a daily basis. There has been an overwhelming response from the people who are visiting the new facility every day from far and wide and on an average 300 poor blind/ visually impaired people are visiting the OPD and 60 patients’ surgeries are being performed on a daily basis – absolutely free.
We are grateful for the financial support extended by PaRRSA , Government of Pakhtunkhwa, Mr. Usman Peracha and INFAQ Foundation which made this dream a reality.
The project is fast near completion with the residential accommodation for the in living doctors, a canteen for the patients and generator room almost ready to be made operational. Meanwhile external works are in progress. The scheduled date for its formal opening is 30th March2014
