By the recent establishment of the Cardiac center, cardiac treatment facility has progressed tremendously and one can proudly say that it is one of the most busy department that has earned lot of credibility. With the start of interventional procedures and cardiac surgery it is a big addition to the already existing few Cardiac facilities in the northern part of country. Now thiscenter is delivering state of the art cardiac treatment facility, not only to people of twin cities but also to people of Kashmir, Khyber PakhtoonKhawa,  Northern Punjab, GilgitBaltistan, FATA, Afghanistan and adjoining area.
