Medicare, the first private hospital in South Punjab offering childhood cancer treatment.

The Medicare Hospital Multan is the first private sector hospital in the South Punjab, which has taken the initiative of making a childhood cancer unit. The hope is that this project will go a long way towards improving childhood cancer care, particularly in the region and in other deprived areas of Pakistan. We are determined to work as a multidisciplinary team to treat our children. We are also heading towards establishing a network of tumour boards not only for childhood cancer but also for the multidisciplinary management of adolescent and young adulthood cancers.

We will discuss every cancer patient in these tumour boards before the start of their treatment, which is a standard practice. We will provide international standard supportive care to our cancer children, will use modern molecular and cytogenetic techniques for their diagnosis and updated chemotherapy, radiotherapy, immunotherapy and oncological surgery guidelines for their management. Childhood cancer is curable and every child has right of getrting treatment irrespective of its cost because nothing is more costly than life.
