As part of the ongoing expansion of services and facilities across Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC), Minister of Public Health HE Dr Hanan Mohamed al-Kuwari inaugurated two new services at the Heart Hospital and the National Center for Cancer Care and Research (NCCCR).
The two new facilities added last week are a state-of-the-art Cardiac MRI Suite and a new chemotherapy robotic pharmacy.
HE the Minister also toured the recently relocated Audiology and Balance Department at the Ambulatory Care Center (ACC), viewing some of the equipment and services available to patients.
She said HMC is expanding and developing its services and facilities to meet the demands of Qatar’s growing population.
The newly-opened Cardiac MRI Suite at Heart Hospital will provide comprehensive inpatient and outpatient diagnostic services for patients. The purpose-built, high-tech magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) suite is the first of its kind at HMC and will deliver the latest MRI technology for noninvasive imaging of the heart and vascular system.
“Having a dedicated Cardiac MRI Suite at Heart Hospital means that inpatients do not need to be transported to other facilities for this kind of procedure,” said Dr al-Kuwari.
Dr Maryam al-Kuwari, Senior Consultant, Cardiac Imaging and Chief Radiologist at HMC said that when fully operational, the dedicated Cardiac MRI Suite will perform upwards of six MRI scans a day.
