The Shaukat Khanum Memorial Hospital (SKMH) and Research Centre in Peshawar is a comprehensive cancer diagnostic and treatment facility which will provide state-of-the-art cancer services to the people of Pakistan's North-West Frontier Province, Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, irrespective of their ability to pay. This modern hospital will help raise healthcare standards and provide training and employment opportunities in the wider region. It is the second SKMH in Pakistan to be designed by Arrasmith, Judd, Rapp, Chovan architects after the original hospital which was constructed in Lahore in 1994. The Peshawar location was chosen to be closer to the nearly 40,000 patients from this region who have been registered at the Lahore SKMH since 1994. The hospital will include outpatient clinics, chemotherapy facilities, and an impatient unit.
