Providing Quality Care to Mother and Child with Medicines & Necessary Lab Test At Affordable Cost
In 1899 the Church Missionary Society (CMS) opened a special hospital for women on the site of the present Women’s Christian Hospital (better known as “Mission Hospital”) in Multan. The hospital provided women with Medical, Surgical, and Obstetric in-patient and out-patient services.
Around 1935 a proper maternity ward and labor rooms were built and a nurse/dai training school was established. (Dai is the name for traditional birth attendant). On October 1st, 1956 the C.M.S. sold the 100-bed hospital to the Women’s Union Missionary Society (WUMS). WUMS was then registered with the Govt. of Pakistan in 1960 and is presently running under WUMS.
In 1978 the hospital emphasis changed to specialize in obstetrics, gynecology and pediatrics Only.
A high percentage of the population of Pakistan (including Multan) is a conservative Muslim. The women observe purdah (veil) seclusion and even for medical reasons prefer female medical and nursing staff. The Women’s Christian Hospital with its exclusively female medical and nursing staff is geared especially to the care of such women and their children under 5 born in this hospital. There are many well-reputed hospitals and clinics throughout the city these days, but the demands on this institution continue to increase. We continuously have to send people away, as we just cannot cope with all those who want to be treated here.
Not surprisingly, most patients come because they believe they will get quality care at a low cost. The other main reason already expressed is that an all-female professional staff treats the women. The hospital treats about 18,000 in-patients and 60,000 outpatients annually. About 2,650 babies are delivered every year.
