Star Welfare Organization (SWO) is a start-up new medical laboratory (the “facility”) in Street No. 2, kot Fareed, Sargodha committed to providing the most convenient, friendliest blood testing free and most economical cost service to a population of approximately 200,000 in the immediate area, and an additional 1.1 million persons in the district Sargodha.
This project is a “Star Medical laboratory” seeking either for-profit or charitable contributions, or a combination thereof. The Facility will not operate as a charity, and will generally charge on a fee-for- service basis. While some patients will have the means to pay directly, many will not. In most cases payment will come from the local donations and other public sources. Due to the inherent nature of providing health care services in a conflict region, the Facility will receive little or no payment in mostly cases. However, the Facility will be managed and operated to ensure long-term sustainability. While profitability will not be the highest priority but positive net income generation for devices and chemical kits are essential for sustainability. Therefore, the Facility will not offer or promote free medical care, except on shelters home, beggars and drugs addiction and a limited basis in cases of bona fide need, a patient’s inability to pay, and the unavailability of payment from other sources.
Star Medical Laboratory will build coordination and referrer system to Govt. and private schools, colleges, hospitals, departments and local NGOs.
