Chief of Army Staff (COAS) General Qamar Javed Bajwa inaugurated the new blocks, a project that commenced in 2013, at the Combined Military Hospital (CMH) Rawalpindi on Tuesday.
After completion of the project, the CMH has become a 1,000-bed hospital with a capacity of 1,150 beds, according to a statement issued by the Inter-Services Public Relations (ISPR).
With the enhanced capacity and addition of high-tech equipment, as many as 5,000 patients would be treated daily at the hospital’s OPD. The hospital would cater to medical needs of military as well as civilian personnel.
It is worth mentioning here that the CMH Rawalpindi has now become one of the state-of-art hospitals which would act as a ‘Base Hospital’ not only for Army but for Air Force and Navy also, the statement added.
