A branch of the Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital & Research Centre is based in Chishtian.
The city experienced armed sectarian violence in 2013 between Sunni and Shia Muslims. The local authorities called in the Pakistan Army to bring order to the situation, which may have been a reaction to similar violence in Rawalpindi on the preceding day.
