District Head Quarters (DHQ) hospital also confronts significant shortage of clinical staff besides other basic facilities Out of 44 sanctioned posts of doctors and other medical staff members 24 of them are vacant. Therefore, there is dire need of well functional and equipped hospital in the district to provide healthcare facilities to 80.79 % of the population of the district, especially to those who come from far-flung areas with a hope to be treated well but return hopelessly when given only some sedative medicine just for a short time relief.
Knowing the sufferings of people and need for a fully functional hospital in Kalat district, a 50-Beded hospital, worth Rs.194.277 million, was approved and its construction inaugurated in 2009, which was to be completed in 24 months.
However, the construction process was suddenly stopped half way. These days the poor quality of work in its building mirrors a very pathetic state of the hospital. No serious notice has been taken to find out the delay in completion of the hospital building in public interest to lessen the sufferings of public.
