Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) outpatient clinics have been moved from Hamad General Hospital to the Ambulatory Care Centre (ACC). The move is part of HMC’s continued efforts to expand services and improve patient care.
The relocation of ENT outpatient clinics to the ACC follows the transfer of the ENT surgery service from Hamad General Hospital late last year. Patients are now able to receive medical and surgical care for disorders and defects of the ears, nose, throat, head, and neck in a single location.
Dr Khalid Mohamed al-Jalham, director, ACC said, “We have been working hard to ensure our patients are able to access the care they need in a single convenient location. With the completion of the ENT move to the Ambulatory Care Center, we are now able to do this. Our new facility is state-of-the-art and I am confident that patients coming here will be extremely pleased with what we have to offer them.”
Dr Abdul Salam al-Qahtani, head of ENT at ACC, also emphasised the enhanced quality of care patients can expect to receive at the new facility. He said: “Towards the end of last year we began to move all ENT surgery services from Hamad General Hospital to the Ambulatory Care Centre. This move is now complete and feedback from patients has been extremely positive. Many of our patients have commented on the excellent care and service received and their satisfaction with the quality of the facility itself.”
The ACC is one of HMC’s three new Hamad Bin Khalifa Medical City hospitals; the hospitals were officially opened in December by His Highness the Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani. The facility, which specialises in outpatient care and day surgery, began welcoming patients last May with the opening of the Podiatry Clinic. To date, more than 40,000 patient visits have been received at the ACC.
