RTEH was established to provide free healthcare services in a state of the art hospital, gifted by the Turkish Government, on DG Khan Road, Muzaffargarh. Recep Tayyip Erdogan Hospital Trust (RTEHT) is a Public-Private Partnership registered in Pakistan under the Societies Registration Act 1860 in April 2014. The hospital was handed over to the Trust under an agreement between the Government of the Punjab and the Trust in June 2014. Initially, RTEHT started operating in July 2014 with 60 beds. Within 12 months of its inception, 40 new beds were added.
The Government of the Punjab has announced and funded the expansion of RTEH which includes a Teaching Hospital, Medical College, Nursing College and other allied amenities on 113 acres of land adjacent to the existing hospital. As per the direction of the Chief Minister of the Punjab, the first phase of the project is to be completed by December 2017.
