Karachi’s Three Major Hospitals Run By Sindh Govt.

Federal government grants Sindh administrator of Karachi 3 hospital.

The federal government acceded to the Sindh government’s request regarding hospital ownership and transferred control of the facilities to the provincial government in accordance with a new agreement, putting an end to the protracted dispute over Karachi’s Three Major  hospitals.

According to specifics, the federal government agreed to give the Sindh government administrative responsibility for the Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Center (JPMC), the National Institute of Cardiovascular Diseases (NICVD), and the National Institute of Child Health (NICH).

The JPMC, the NICH in Karachi, and the NICVD must now be under the supervision of the federal government, the Supreme Court ruled in January 2019 after rejecting the Sindh government’s appeal.

The provincial government and the health institutions had gone before the court with the argument that the management of the JPMC, NICVD, and NICH fell under the purview of the Sindh government because the 18th Amendment had devolved responsibility for health to the provinces.

It is important to note that, following the 18th Amendment, the federal government transferred control of the three hospitals to the provincial government in 2011.

National Institute of Cardiovascular Diseases (NICVD)

A medical facilities network is located in Pakistan and run through the (NICVD) in partnership with the Sindh Government. In 1963, Dr. Ali Muhammad Kasim founded it.

With its main facility in Karachi and eight satellite facilities dispersed throughout Sindh, the (NICVD) has become the only medical facility in the world to have performed more than 4,000 cardiac surgeries, 8,197 primary PCIs, over 12,000 procedures, and dozens of cardiac implants. These all procedures are performed without charge.

Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre (JPMC)

JPMC also known as (Jinnah Hospital, Karachi) is located at Rafiqui Shaheed Road in the Karachi Cantonment area of KarachiSindhPakistan.

The hospital complex is one of the largest government-run hospitals in Karachi, with about one million people a year visiting.

National Institute of Child Health (NICH)

(JPMC) Pediatric Surgery Unit served as the Institute’s first location for many years. At the request of the top administrative officials, President Zia-ul-Haq visited the School of Pediatrics in 1979 and named it the National Institute of Child Health (NICH).

In April 1990, NICH separated from JPMC and joined the Federal Ministry of Health. Its inaugural director was Prof. Nizam ul Hassan, the foremost pediatric surgeon in the nation.
