Hazm Mebaireek General Hospital begins surgical services Jul 21, 2019 0 887 12345 Tribune News NetworkDohaHazm Mebaireek General Hospital (HMGH), Hamad Medical Corporation’s newest hospital, has completed the first phase of its surgical services implementation programme.Two operating theatres for elective general surgery and urology procedures are now open, and more than 15 surgeries are expected to be performed each week as part of the initial phase of the implementation of the new service.Dr Hani Kilani, Medical Director of HMGM, called the launch of the new service a noteworthy accomplishment. He said those living and working in the Industrial Area of Doha will now benefit from an even wider range of services. The start of surgical services at Hazm Mebaireek General Hospital is expected to free up operating theater capacity across HMC’s network of hospitals.“With the opening of our new operating theaters, we can now offer an even wider range of services at our state-of-the-art facility. With availability of both clinics and surgery at a single dedicated location, patients can access high-quality surgical treatment and follow-up care without being required to to travel to different locations for pre- and post-surgery care and appointments,” said Dr Kilani.Phase two of the surgical services implementation, which is expected to commence in the coming months, will include the opening of additional operating theaters, increasing capacity for elective surgical procedures and providing emergency surgery and other specialties, including orthopaedics and hand surgery.Hussein Ishaq, Executive Director of HMGH, said last year’s opening of the community-based hospital has brought care closer to where it is needed in the community and helped to relieve pressures across HMC’s hospitals and clinics, particularly emergency services at Hamad General and Al Wakra Hospitals.“Since opening last year, Hazm Mebaireek has had a positive impact on the growth in healthcare capacity across HMC. With offering of community-based quality healthcare to those living and working in the Industrial Area of Doha, patients who had to travel afar to access clinical, emergency, and surgical care within a hospital setting, can now access the care they need on their doorstep. This is not only far more convenient for them but also helps to lessen the load on our busy hospitals in Doha,” said Ishaq.Located in the Industrial Area of Doha, Hazm Mebaireek General Hospital provides care for adult male patients, particularly those living and working in that area. The hospital, which was officially opened in December 2018, offers a range of outpatient, inpatient, and emergency care service.
