  • Sahara for Life Trust – As a start, the Sughra Shafi Medical Complex was constructed in District Narowal, meant to be a quality health service provider in a region with no such facilities. The hospital, built on 40 kanals of land donated by Ibrar Ul Haque and supported by various like minded people as well, took more than two years to be completely functional. As it was in a rural area, there was little chance that specialist doctors would come to serve in Narowal. The management committee found a solution to provide the consultants appropriate incentives to bring them on board. The incentives included competitive salaries and lodging facilities.

    An apartment was constructed to meet their residential problems. Today, a 200-bed hospital is operational with all the facilities of a modern hospital. The statistics show that approximately 90% of the patients are given free treatment or a 75% rebate. In the year 2004, the hospital incurred an accumulative expenditure of over Rs. 151 million whilst the fee generated from patients was a paltry Rs 0.7 million. On average, 250 patients visit the hospital daily.
  • Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital & Research Centre – Over the past decade, Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital & Research Centre has established itself as a centre of excellence providing comprehensive care free of cost to thousands of indigent cancer patients. This pioneering, state-of-the-art hospital located in the heart of the Punjab was founded by Imran Khan, one of Pakistan's most illustrious cricketers. As a charitable institute, it is funded predominantly from the donations of friends and well-wishers from around the country and across the world.
  • Jinnah Hospital – Jinnah Hospital is the second largest teaching hospital in the Pakistani province of Punjab spread over 105 acres (0.42 km2) and with 1100 beds. Jinnah Hospital is where all major or minor accident cases from the Motorway are brought for immediate management being the best Level I trauma center of Lahore. A majority of patients at Jinnah come from the surrounding poor suburbs like Bhai Pheru, Pattoki, Raiwind and all the near villages. Jinnah also caters to the southern localities of Lahore as well as southern Punjab.
