Addressing inaugural ceremony, the Chief Minister said that 60-bed modern hospital had been handed over to the citizens in Raiwind as a gift.
Three demands were presented during election campaign in 2013 and the promise of construction of hospital had been fulfilled, he added.

Shehbaz Sharif said that if doctors and other staff of this hospital were ready to accept challenge of running the hospital on the pattern of Agha Khan Hospital or Indus Hospital then he was ready to provide all out resources but it would not be operated like common government hospital.
He said that a modern model had been prepared in this regard under which Tayyip Erdogan Hospital Muzaffargarh and Shehbaz Sharif Hospital Bedian Road were operated and these were run by Indus.
If doctors of THQ Hospital Raiwind were ready to accept challenge and provide treatment facilities personally to the patients then he was also with them and bonus would be given to them otherwise the model of Muzaffargarh and Bedian Road Hospitals would be adopted in this hospital.
This model will be enforced on August 14, 2016, he added.

Shehbaz Sharif said that he would not rest content until the last hospital was set right. He said that elite enjoyed the facilities of education and treatment in the country but the children of common man were deprived of these facilities.
Shehbaz Sharif said that some opponents who kept the nation in darkness for 15 years, looted billions of rupees of the nation and wanted to indulge in the politics of protest after Eid.
He said that people still remembered the sit-ins of 2014 when the visit of Chinese President was postponed due to these sit-ins in December 2014 and he came to Pakistan in April 2015 and signed agreements of billions of dollars with Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif.
He said that immediate after these agreements, work was started speedily on power plants. He said that work carried out on 1320 megawatt coal power plant Sahiwal, coal power plant Port Qasim and solar project Bahawalpur was unprecedented in the history of the country.
He said that thousands of megawatt electricity would be generated next year and darkness would be eliminated in Pakistan.
He said that Rs 112 billion of the nation had been saved only in 3600 megawatt gas based projects adding that no one had even saved Rs 12 so far.
He said that people would not allow these elements to succeed in their nefarious designs.
The Chief Minister said he was giving the message to the people that future of Pakistan was bright and journey to progress and prosperity was continuing speedily. He said that various power plants would start generating energy in 2017.
He said that 1320-megawatt Sahiwal coal power plant would
be completed 6 months earlier in June 2017 instead of December
He appealed to the people to become united for saving Pakistan and only due to the force of unity, all conspiracies of opponents would be foiled.
Shehbaz Sharif said that those demanding resignation from
Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif should first peep into
their conscience and first hold their own accountability.
He said that it was very easy to talk while sitting in air-conditioned rooms adding that opponents were perturbed over the development of the country and people would again foil the conspiracy of sit-ins.
He said that those who looted billions of rupees of the nation were talking about accountability. He said that those who committed corruption in the country would be held accountable.
Shehbaz Sharif said that with the blessings of Allah Almighty and prayers of the nation, Prime Minister Muhammad Nawaz Sharif was recovering and would return to the country soon.
