WASH­ING­TON: Kuwait’s Health Min­is­ter Dr Ja­mal Al-Harbi vis­ited Fri­day Ge­orge­town Univer­sity Hos­pi­tal dur­ing which he met with the ex­ec­u­tive lead­er­ship of the hos­pi­tal and met with Kuwaiti pa­tients un­der­go­ing treat­ment there.

Dur­ing his visit, Dr Al-Harbi was given a pre­sen­ta­tion of the dif­fer­ent ser­vices the hos­pi­tal of­fers in its dif­fer­ent de­part­ments and dis­cussed means to fur­ther en­hance the co­op­er­a­tion and fu­ture col­lab­o­ra­tion. A re­cep­tion was also held at the hos­pi­tal in honor of Dr Harbi, dur­ing which he fol­lowed up on the treat­ment progress of Kuwaiti pa­tients and lis­tened to a de­tailed ex­pla­na­tion of their treat­ment and re­cov­ery plans.

Dr Harbi stressed the im­por­tance of his visit to Ge­orge­town Univer­sity Hos­pi­tal, say­ing he got a “very pos­i­tive feed­back from our pa­tients here, where they are very happy not only from the treat­ment they are re­ceiv­ing but also the psy­cho­log­i­cal treat­ment es­pe­cially can­cer pa­tients with a tu­mor who need psy­cho­log­i­cal sup­port.” He added “we also dis­cussed (with the hos­pi­tal’s ex­ec­u­tive lead­er­ship) the ex­change of ex­per­tise,” for Kuwaiti doc­tors to come here and also for doc­tors from this hos­pi­tal to visit Kuwait, as well as nurses “which is of great im­por­tance to en­hance and im­prove the qual­ity in this re­gard es­pe­cially in the in­ten­sive care units.” Other is­sues dis­cussed in­cluded “ways to im­prove hos­pi­tals man­age­ment, re­search and the Elec­tronic Med­i­cal Record (EMR),” he noted.

Min­is­ter Harbi shed light on the mega hos­pi­tals that will in­au­gu­rate in Kuwait in the near fu­ture which are Jaber Hos­pi­tal and Al-Jahraa Hos­pi­tal, say­ing “we in­vited a team from the Ge­orge­town Univer­sity Hos­pi­tal to visit Kuwait and visit th­ese hos­pi­tals,” and that this re­flects “the very good co­op­er­a­tion be­tween the Kuwait Healthy Min­istry and the Hos­pi­tal.” For his part, Pres­i­dent of Ge­orge­town Univer­sity Hos­pi­tal Michael Sachtleben said “we are so hon­ored to have the Min­is­ter here to­day.” He added “we are very proud of the care that we pro­vide here and so thank­ful to the Min­is­ter and the Kuwaiti peo­ple for en­trust­ing us with the care of their pa­tients from the youngest to the old­est.”

“To­day was a won­der­ful op­por­tu­nity for us to say thank you for that op­por­tu­nity,” he re­marked. He af­firmed “we value our re­la­tion­ship with Kuwait and we look for­ward to ex­plor­ing other op­por­tu­ni­ties and ar­eas where we can con­tinue to move for­ward in our jour­ney to pro­vide safe, high qual­ity care in part­ner­ship with the Kuwaiti peo­ple.” The Kuwaiti Health Min­is­ter was ac­com­pa­nied dur­ing his visit to the Hos­pi­tal by his ac­com­pa­ny­ing del­e­ga­tion, the Head of the Kuwait Health Of­fice in Wash­ing­ton DC Dr Ali El-Enizi and Health At­tache Dr Khaled Ab­dul­ghani.
