Over the years medicine has improved in leaps and bounds. This progress is highlighted by the fact that nowadays people in Pakistan live longer and healthier lives than they used to. Child mortality rates have also decreased substantially over time. Medical practitioners are able to specialize in many different areas of medicine and thus tackle problems they were unable to before. Additionally, it is imperative that the doctors offering these specializations are highly skilled and can consistently produce results. Thus, it stands to reason that any hospital worth its salt not only offers a high degree of specialization to deal with a range of medical issues but is also able to consistently produce results.
The National Hospital & Medical Center has a long-standing history of excellence. The hospital offers a high degree of specialization with departments dedicated to tackling different medical issues.

The patient had been advised by another hospital that the best course of treatment for him would be bed rest but the talented team at NH&MC after much deliberation prescribed a non-invasive course of treatment. The treatment NH&MC provided proved immediately successful and the boy was able to begin the first day after his operation.
The National Hospital & Medical Center dedication to effective healthcare can also be seen in the way they have handled the Covid-19 pandemic.
