“SKMT Karachi is on schedule to open end of next year. It will be bigger than SKMT Peshawar and Lahore; and will be equipped with the latest state of the art machines,” he said.
Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centres (SKMCH&RC) are state-of-the-art cancer centres located in Lahore and Peshawar.
SKMCH&RC, Lahore was the first project of the Shaukat Khanum Memorial Trust, a charitable organization established under the Societies Registration Act XXI of 1860 of Pakistan.
Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital and Research Centre is the brainchild of Prime Minister Imran Khan. The inspiration to build the Hospital came after his mother, Mrs. Shaukat Khanum, succumbed to cancer in 1985.
