On Monday 6 September, Princess Zahra will deliver an address at a special Ceremony to name the Aga Khan University Hospital’s new Private Wing Complex in Karachi as the Princess Zahra Pavilion. The event is expected to begin at 8:00 AM (Toronto) / 1:00 PM (London) / 5:00 PM (Karachi) and will be streamed live on The Ismaili TV.

The New Private Wing complex at AKUH’s main campus in Karachi represents a state-of-the-art facility, offering to patients a high quality of clinical care with additional touches of comfort and convenience. The complex houses 85 rooms, including special care rooms, isolation rooms, family lounge, dining court, roof terrace, and more.

The facility has been designed to provide peace and tranquility to patients as they recuperate from clinical procedures. Inspired by Islamic Art and Culture, the architecture and landscaping have been carefully designed to create a calming environment that contributes to patients’ healing process and early recovery.

Various parts of the building offer views of lakes and lush green gardens, while the outside courtyard offers soothing sounds of birds and water fountains. In addition, the numerous well-lit and open spaces offer respite to family members as they wait for loved ones to get better.

The complex began operations in 2019, and today stands strong in demonstrating the mission of the wider Aga Khan Development Network, and the aspirations of its founder and chairman Mawlana Hazar Imam.
