MUS­CAT: The Min­istry of Health (MoH) on Wed­nes­day signed an agree­ment for the con­struc­tion of a dial­y­sis unit at Sur hos­pi­tal funded by Al Jisr Foun­da­tion.

The agree­ment was signed by Dr. Dar­weesh Saif Al Ma­harbi, MoH’s Un­der­sec­re­tary for Ad­min­is­tra­tive & Fi­nan­cial Af­fairs, and Al Jisr’s Gen­eral Man­ager Ahmed Hi­lal Al Harthi. Dr. Al Ma­harbi em­pha­sised the sig­nif­i­cance of pub­lic and pri­vate sec­tor part­ner­ships for gen­eral in­ter­est, prais­ing Al Jisr’s ini­tia­tive.

Al Jisr’s gen­eral man­ager stressed the in­sti­tu­tion’s con­tin­u­ing com­mit­ment to part­ner­ships and co­op­er­a­tion with gov­ern­ment in­sti­tu­tions to serve the de­vel­op­ment of the coun­try, in­clud­ing with re­gard to health ser­vices pro­vided to cit­i­zens.

Sur hos­pi­tal pro­vides sev­eral ser­vices, in­clud­ing the pro­vi­sion of dial­y­sis treat­ment, to var­i­ous pa­tients through its op­er­at­ing re­nal dial­y­sis unit. There­fore, the con­struc­tion of a new build­ing for of­fer­ing dial­y­sis ser­vice is a re­mark­able ad­di­tion to the pro­vided health ser­vices due to the in­crease in pa­tients’ strength and con­ges­tion, as well as the im­pos­si­bil­ity of crit­i­cal treat­ment.

It should be noted that while the old build­ing com­prises 14 beds, ac­com­mo­dat­ing around 34 pa­tients, and two beds in three iso­la­tion rooms, the pro­posed new build­ing will be built on an area of 1,150 square me­tres, com­pris­ing 20 beds that can cater to 60 pa­tients a day.

HEALTH­CARE: The agree­ment was signed by Dr. Dar­weesh Saif Al Ma­harbi, MoH’s Un­der­sec­re­tary for Ad­min­is­tra­tive & Fi­nan­cial Af­fairs, and Al Jisr’s Gen­eral Man­ager Ahmed Hi­lal Al Harthi.
