Fazl-e-Omar Hospital, Rabwah is a leading private health care institute in an area of Punjab, Pakistan. It is run by the Ahmadiyya Jamaat. Founded in 1958 it has now become one of the finest medical facilities in the area providing hospital services not only to the local community but also to patients from towns and villages from further afield.
With a roofed area of 115,000 square feet (10,700 m2), 150 beds and highly trained medical staff, Fazl-e-Omar aims to provide up-to-date medical care in major specialities such as medicine, surgery and paediatrics in a caring environment. Last year more than 140,000 patients were seen in the OPD.
Begum Zubaida Bani Wing
2003 saw the opening of the new gynaecology/obstetrics unit at the hospital, Begum Zubaida Bani Wing. The 3-storey modern facility was opened to provide a wide range of medical/surgical services for women including gynaecology outpatient's clinic, gynaecology, antenatal/postnatal wards and operation theatre. Also incorporated in the building is the paediatric ICU unit. The department has a 24-hour delivery suite with approximately 900 delivery cases annually. The new building has a modern décor with large waiting areas, including a children's play area in the outpatient's clinic, and well decorated, fully air-conditioned private rooms, central oxygen supply & suction units. Begum Zub-aida Bani Wing also has a separate set-up for hepatitis patients.
To facilitate doctor and nurse training a seminar room and library are also available in the new wing.
