Mansehra: Nawaf Al-Malki, Saudi Arabia ambassador to Pakistan, has inaugurated a 285-bed well equipped King Abdullah Teaching Hospital Mansehra in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP).
Cutting the ribbon while inaugurating the sprawling facility situated on a 198,724 square feet, Nawaf told the gathering: “The construction of this hospital was the long standing desire of the kingdom after parts of Mansehra were badly shattered by the devastated earthquake in 2005.” He appreciated the completion of the project within stipulated two years’ time, saying that the hospital is yet another manifestation of strong bonds between Saudi Arabia and Pakistan.
“King Abdullah Teaching Hospital is equipped with state-of-the-art facilities where patients for almost all diseases will be treated by an efficient staff,” he remarked.
The Kingdom is planning to launch construction of yet another big hospital project in the periphery of Islamabad soon, a source who wished anonymity said.
A large number of locals including businessmen, politicians, lawmakers and local elders attended the ceremony who thanked the ambassador for resolving one of the pressing health problems of the area.
