Eight new hospitals are planned to be constructed in Tehran. One of the hospitals (Shariati Hospital 2) will be located in the northern part of the Chitgar Lake, Tehran Municipality district 22, said Ali Jafarian, head of Tehran University of Medical Sciences.

“At present there are no state-run hospitals in the district and building the hospital will facilitate the local people’s access to healthcare services,” IRNA quoted him as saying. He did not say where in the capital the other hospitals would be built.

Pointing to the Health Ministry’s measures to improve the standard of living in informal settlements, he said that currently, there is one healthcare center for every 12,500 people living in the outlying areas of cities.
