KARACHI: Sindh Information and Labour Minister Saeed Ghani on Tuesday inaugurated the 10th chest pain unit of the National Institute of Cardiovascular Diseases (NICVD) in New Karachi.

Speaking on the occasion, he said that NICVD was handed over to the Sindh government in 2011 as a single hospital, which in a span of a few years had been transformed into a network of cardiac-care facilities linking eight cities of Sindh and saving thousands of lives on a daily basis.

“Undoubtedly, the NICVD is now the world’s largest cardiac-care hospital which is performing highest number of cardiology-related interventions and procedures,” he said.

He said Sindh had emerged as the only province where treatment of heart-, cancer- and kidney-related conditions were being provided free of charge.
