NEW PRIVATE HOSPITALS TO HAVE REDUCED AREAS
The Ministry of Health will reduce the areas of private hospitals built in the future due to a lack of enough space to build hospitals the way they used to be, assistant undersecretary for private medical services Dr Mohammed Al-Khashti said. Speaking to reporters at the sidelines of Omooma Hospital’s 6th anniversary celebrations, Khashti said some owners had already been granted licenses to build new hospitals. Meanwhile, Omooma Hospital’s founder and supervisor Alia Faisal AlKhaled said the hospital had faced various challenges since it opened in 2010, including hiring skilled medical and administrative staff. Also speaking on the occasion, the hospital’s CEO Dr Saeed Rateb said new wings would be added to the hospital next year. He added that since its establishment in 2010, the hospital has received over 330,000 patients.
