The hospital had been constructed on advanced and modern pattern and would treat patients of different diseases. The new 350-bed hospital would help reduce burden on the Mirwais Zonal hospital. Currently 50 beds had been activated and the hospital had started dealing with general surgeries and childbirth. The rest of 300 beds would start operation over the next three years.
