“Cancer patients and their families undergo a traumatic period of their lives,
particularly when the only earning member of the family is afficted or a mother with young children is diagnosed with cancer.
The admission policy at Bait-ul-Sukoon is purely on a need basis. No patient is given a biased treatment, neither is any community member given preference over the other.”
-Dr. Jawaid Mallick, Consultant Oncologist
Bait-ul-Sukoon (House of Peace & Contentment) was first started from a house in KDA-I that served as a hospice shelter for under-privileged, terminally ill cancer patients. During its first year, the shelter was overwhelmed with the increasing amount of suﬀering persons.
Gradually, patients with better prognosis were oﬀered curative treatment, hence leading to the foundation of the only cancer hospital with a hospice in Pakistan.
In 2009 Bait-ul-Sukoon Cancer Hospital and Hospice moved to its own purpose-built premises with 45 beds for inpatients and diagnostic facilities of mammography, ultrasound radiography, pathological laboratory and in-house pharmacy oﬀering a complete range of cancer treatment drugs. Awarness towards prevention of the disease is also imparted.
Philanthopists and Foundations funded the construction of this modern facility at a cost of Rs. 100 million. Built on a 1,200 sq. yds. plot in Block 3, K.C.H.S. Union, Karachi near the Hill Park, the hospital is divided over three ﬂoors with a total built-up area of 23000 sq. ft.
Since its inception, 26400 patients have received palliative as well as curative treatment. All patients are pathologically tested. Some even undergo radiology and ultrasound diagnostics. All treatment, boarding and lodging costs are borne by the institution.
