Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) has launched a website exclusively dedicated to the new Medical City hospitals.
The new website is part of an effort to help patients, and other members of the community, get to know the three facilities as well as their staff and services, says Ali Abdullah Al Khater, HMC’s Chief Communications Officer and Chair of the Healthcare Communications Committee. “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,” he said.
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.
Dr. Abdulla Al Ansari, Acting Chief Medical Officer for HMC, said the new specialist hospitals are helping HMC to deliver on its commitment to provide the best possible care to Qatar’s population by improving access to the right care, delivered by expert specialist clinicians using advanced equipment in a wonderful setting.
“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 program 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 specialized surgeries by minimizing wait times and allowing patients to recover in the comfort of their own home,” said Dr Al Ansari.
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 also 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 website for the new Medical City hospitals can be accessed at http://www.newhmchospitals.qa.
