Our mission is to provide a safe, cost-effective, and caring environment, supported by evidence-based practice and professional development in collaboration with other healthcare providers.
When constructing the SCH facility, one of the main focuses of the sponsors was the provision of healthcare in a relaxing and pleasant environment; one that doesn’t feel like a hospital. Therefore SCH pays special attention to architecture and ambiance in the same manner that a hotel does. Unlike most hospitals in Pakistan that are characterized by sterile, impersonal interiors and poorly attired staff, SCH attempts to be more than just a hospital.
Catering to a market that appreciates and expects personalized service, the facility focuses on details that go beyond medical care. The entrance is hidden by trees and running water, both serving not only to calm the nerves but also to muffle the sound of traffic. Inside, a rich red is used on the walls and furniture—quite unlike a medical facility. Simple and understated details like recessed lighting or a colorful column for the children’s area add a personal touch to the surroundings. Special care has been taken to allow natural light through large windows and courtyards. Four floors of the hospital look down into this courtyard which functions as the hospital cafeteria. Finishing materials generally used are robust and easy to maintain; such as bacteria-repellant carpets in corridors, used for a sound reduction since most other hospital corridors are noisy.
Patient rooms are clean and efficiently planned with a dining table, a writing table, and a day bed which also doubles as a sofa bed. Most of all, patient windows overlook green spaces. The level of accommodation is flexible and designed to meet various budgets.
All floors have fire exits and are complete with safety equipment. Exterior and multi-floor security is controlled in‐house. SCH has its laundry, gourmet restaurant plus gift and flower shops. It operates its own CSSD, housekeeping, and ambulance services.
