HE the Minister of Public Health Dr Hanan Mohamed al-Kuwari said the new Medical City complex will provide patients with access to an unprecedented level of care by increasing bed capacity, improving services, and granting faster access to specialised treatment.
“The new Medical City hospitals represent the biggest expansion of healthcare facilities in the history of our nation and are a central part of our commitment to providing patients with the safest, most effective, and most compassionate care. These facilities have been planned in accordance with the highest medical standards and the latest international technologies. They will introduce new services and signi?cantly increase the capacity of HMC’s system to meet the country’s growing demand for specialised care,” added Dr al-Kuwari.
As the region’s largest tertiary rehabilitation hospital, QRI provides world-class integrated rehabilitation services and the most technologically advanced patient-centred care. The care provided is based on the most current rehabilitation research and practised in an environment that encourages both mental and physical healing.
The ACC is providing patients with access to the latest treatment using advanced clinical and surgical practices offered within the same day and in a single dedicated location. Within 23 hours of receiving surgery or a medical procedure, patients are able to leave the hospital and return to recover in the comfort of their own home. The facility also houses a number of outpatient clinics.
As the region’s largest tertiary hospital dedicated to providing women in Qatar with specialised care through all stages of their lives, once fully operational the WWRC will provide a range of surgical and clinical services, from preconception to childbirth, post-natal care and beyond.
