Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) has announced the launch of a website dedicated exclusively to the new Medical City hospitals.
Ali Abdullah al-Khater, chief communications officer HMC and chair, Healthcare Communications Committee said the new website is part of an effort to help patients, and other members of the community to get to know the three facilities as well as their staff and services.
“The website is very interactive. In addition to having information about the various services offered at each of the new hospitals, it includes photographs and 360-degree virtual tours of the facilities. This functionality will not only enable people to experience the state-of-the-art environment in which care will be offered for themselves, but we are confident it will also lead to the same sense of pride everyone at HMC feels in our new hospitals,” said al-Khater.
HMC’s new Medical City complex represents the biggest healthcare facility expansion in the region and will bring new services and care options to the people of Qatar. Once fully operational, the three new hospitals – Qatar Rehabilitation Institute, Women’s Wellness and Research Center, and the Ambulatory Care Center – will house 500 new hospital beds and 3,000 highly trained clinical and support staff.
“Our Medical City hospitals are delivering on a promise to expand world-class facilities for the people of Qatar. They have been designed with the experience of our patients and their families in mind. From enhanced privacy offered throughout our 240 private inpatient rooms at Women’s Wellness and Research Center, to new and expanded treatment options like our daycare programme at Qatar Rehabilitation Institute, these new hospitals are helping ensure we provide the best quality care and treatment to our patients. The Ambulatory Care Center is also improving access to specialised surgeries by minimising wait times and allowing patients to recover in the comfort of their own home,” said Dr Abdulla al-Ansari, acting chief medical officer, HMC,
Al-Khater added that the new website has been designed to bring the hospitals directly to patients, allowing them to explore the facilities from their own home, or even from their smartphone.
The website provides an opportunity to register interest in visiting the new hospitals in person, with a number of tours planned for next year. There is also an option to sign up for regular updates on new clinic and service openings. The new website can be accessed at http://www.newhmchospitals.qa.
