  • Need


    In Pakistan the State does not provide free cancer facilities and if one is diagnosed with the illness he does not have anywhere to turn to. Each year the hospital has to refuse thousands of suffering cancer patients an by increasing the hospital capacity, our aim is to accommodate more patients.


    If we were to increase the patient capacity, we have to increase the ratio of ICU rooms accordingly. The addition of ICU unit will address the problem.

  • Aims

    Aim 1

    To increase the patient intake.


    » Expanding the hospital facilities

    What success will look like

    The success of the aim would depend on the additional facilities we add to the current facility

    Aim 2

    To provide state of the art cancer care


    » We employ the best medical professionals who make sure that the bast caner care is offered the patients at Shaukat Khanum Cancer Hospital

    What success will look like

    The average stay of the patient in the ICU is 3.4 days, which clearly indicates the quality treatment at the hospital.

  • Impact


    In 2016, SKMCH&RC recorded 10,203 new patient registrations and 236,351 outpatient visits, three times the number of registrations, and almost six times the number of visits in the year 2000. Over the last fifteen years, the Hospital has seen an increasing trend in the number of patients admitted in the ICUs in SKMCH&RC, Lahore due to their critical medical conditions. The project would be able provide the crucial treatment to the increased number of cancer patients.


    The lack of medical professionals could impact the success of the project.

    SKMCH&RC, Lahore is already staffed with board-certified critical care consultants, formally-trained respiratory therapists and offer one-to-one nursing services. The hospital ensures the staff availability before the project begins.


    All donors and sponsors would be informed with the progress of the project throughout the year via mail or email according to their preference.
