Bayat Foundation inaugurates new pediatric critical care facility at Indira Gandhi Hospital in Kabul
The Bayat Foundation, led by entrepreneur and philanthropist Ehsanollah Bayat, recently inaugurated a new pediatric intensive care unit (ICU) and critical care unit (CCU) at Indira Gandhi Hospital in Kabul.  The facility, rebuilt atop the debris of an unused, ruined section of the building in less than five months, features advanced remote patient monitoring technology, modern beds and medical equipment, and a variety of additional solutions focused on enabling acute care for children.

“We are grateful to have the opportunity to aid the committed medical staff and young children of Afghanistan by constructing this modern pediatric care unit,” Mr. Bayat said. “Through our long support of young leukemia patients at Indira Gandhi Hospital, we realized the significant difference that new ICU/CCU facilities could play in allowing doctors to serve many more of the neediest and most at-risk children, more effectively than before.  The Foundation looks forward to remaining engaged with hospitals around the nation to help ensure the next generation of Afghans begin life as safely and well as possible, and we believe this new pediatric facility will provide improved healthcare results for many of the neediest children in Afghanistan.”

The new critical care unit is the twelfth health care facility that the Bayat Foundation has constructed around the nation since beginning a mission in 2005 to build a network of maternal and early childhood hospitals in underserved and underdeveloped areas of Afghanistan whose main focus is maternal wellbeing, child health, and safe births.  

This network of medical care facilities for Afghan mothers and children – located in Mazar-e-Sharif (Balkh Province), Dai Kundi (Uruzgan Province), Maimana (Faryab Province), Behsood (Wardak Province); Tagaab Village (Wardak Province); Hessa Dowom (Wardak Province); Tora Bora (Nangahar Province), Sar-e Pul City (Sar-e Pul Province), Lashkargah (Helmand Province), and Gardez (Paktia Province)– has served more than 700,000 patients since the inception of the Foundation's maternal/child health initiative.  The hospitals range in size from 10 to 150 beds and are built to a modern design, with complete electrical systems, patient rooms, operating rooms, delivery rooms, post-operative recovery rooms, a pharmacy, doctor's offices, reception area, storage and bathrooms.
