Munshi Mohammad Ramzan Free Hospital (MMR Free Hospital):
Peer Usman laid down the foundation of this hospital back in January 1st, 2010. He named this hospital after his late grandfather “Munshi Mohammad Ramzan”. The hospital with 27,000 square foot of coverage has 22 patients rooms and a beautiful large masjid attached to it where hundreds of people offer their gratitude and thanks to the Almighty Allah. Each patient room is equipped with a bed and an attached bath. The sole purpose of this hospital is to offer free healing and treatment to everyone irrespective of his or her religion, status or condition. The majority of the contribution for this hospital has come from Peer Usman’s own personal donation, including several acres of his ancestors’ land. Other donations came from his other family members including his father and friends (from Pakistan, UK and Norway).
Construction Cost of Hospital:
So far about 4.5 crore rupee (4.25 million dollars) have been spent on the construction of the hospital. The break down of this expenditure is as follows: Peer Usman donated about 3.5 crore rupee ($3.2 million dollars) and a large piece of land whose estimated value is around 2 crore rupee ($2 million dollars). Another large donation came from Norway of about 23 lakh rupee ($260000) while the rest came from Pakistan.
Other Hospital Details:
One therapy room of 100×100 square foot. Five rooms for doctors and five rooms for administrative purposes.
1 X-Ray room, 1 ultrasound room, 1 medicine room, 1 laboratory room, and 1 operation theatre room.
There are two large entrances; one for the hospital and the other one for the rehabilitation center. Each entrance has its own waiting room. The hospital waiting room is of 80×160 square foot while the rehabilitation center has a waiting room of 60×100 square foot.
Each of the 22 patient rooms has an attached bath with it.
Future plans and current donation needs:
Currently the Hospital and the Rehabilitation Center are mainly run with the help of volunteers and financial support from Peer Usman. The daily expense is about Rs 20,000 ($225 US dollars) that mainly covers food and lodging for the admitted patients. We have limited supply of medicines and medical equipment. Our intention is to increase medical staff from one doctor to five doctors and broaden the services that can be offered for patients who come for healing. We are in dire need of more hospital beds and medical equipment.
