Health centre inaugurated for IBA staffers and students


January 17, 2018

The Institute of Business Administration (IBA), in collaboration with Martin Dow, inaugurated a dedicated health facility at its main campus on Tuesday.

The health centre has been set up to provide quality healthcare facilities for IBA staff, students and faculty alike and will be operational six days a week, said a press release.

IBA Dean and Director Dr Farrukh Iqbal welcomed the chief guest and audience and highlighted that the IBA was more than just a business school. For the past 20 years, the IBA has had a strong computer science department and recently the varsity has diversified to become a premier institution of higher education in many other disciplines as well.

A. Sattar Akhai, Group Chairman Martin Dow, graced the occasion as the chief guest and inaugurated the facility by unveiling the plaque. The event was attended by prominent personalities from the corporate world, IBA graduates, faculty and students.

Acknowledging a generous contribution of Rs30 million from Martin Dow in setting up the clinic, Dr Iqbal said: “The health centre is already making a difference to the care and comfort of staff and faculty.”

Sattar Akhai said: “I am honoured to be opening this health centre for the members of the IBA family. I understand that the routine in educational institute can be rigorous and can easily take a toll on your health. Hence it will take care of first aid, emergency and the counselling needs here at IBA.”

Martin Dow, one of the largest locally owned pharmaceutical groups in Pakistan, has collaborated with Pakistan’s top business school, IBA, to provide quality healthcare facilities for its students, faculty and staff. The clinic will provide the students of the IBA with high quality medical facilities at the campus, which will address the concern of medical needs during the rigorous academic schedules of the students throughout the study years.

Providing first aid, emergency services and counselling sessions, the health centre became operational on August 18, 2017 and has served hundreds of incoming patients since then. The ceremony concluded with a memorabilia presentation to A. Sattar Akhai and vote of thanks by Dr Farrukh Iqbal.
