Cleveland Clinic & Johns Hopkins Hospital coming to Pakistan?

This news was shared on twitter by Javed Afridi one of the leading businessmen from Pakistan, who owns the popular Peshawer Zalmi cricket franchise of the Pakistan Super League (PSL), the consumer electronics company Haier & the Automobile company MG Motors Pakistan.

Mr Afridi is known to invest in different and unconventional sectors, we might see him as the local partner for establishment of hospitals affiliated with the above mentioned organizations following the example of Cleveland clinic Abu-dhabi.

There are no further details or timelines regarding when or how these health facilities will come to Pakistan till yet, so be wary of the news till there is an official announcement from the concerned organizations.

Though if this news turns to be true this would be a game changer in the Health Care Sector, as no world-class health care facility is currently available in Pakistan and patients would have access to advanced treatment locally, for which they had to travel to UAE or other western countries earlier. 

The only downside to watch for is cost, as these facilities have charges towards the higher side.
