18 July 2015
His Excellency the Minister of Health, Eng. Khalid Al-Falih, has extended Eid greetings Friday morning (the first day of Eid al-Fitr) to the patients of Dammam Medical Complex on a spontaneous and surprise visit.
On this occasion, the Director of Public Relations and Health Media at Al-Sharqiya Health Affairs Directorate, Mohamed Al-Hout, said that the Minister of Health has paid a visit to the hospitalized patients at Dammam Medical Tower, during which he distributed bouquets of flowers and candy to them in an initiative that reflected a humanitarian gesture within the context of the social communication to make patients feel Eid cheerfulness despite their illness and overwhelm them with joy and happiness.
Al-Hout added that the Minister of Health has met during the visit with the employees of the complex assigned to work during the Eid and reviewed the process of providing services for the patients during the staffers’ working hours and urged them to exert the utmost efforts and spread happiness to the hospitalized patients on the Eid days to forget the sufferings of their illness.
In a similar fashion, Mr. Al-Hout pointed out that the Director General of Al-Sharqiya Health Affairs Directorate, Dr. Khalid bin Mohamed Al-Shaibani has paid earlier on the same day a similar visit during which he extended Eid greetings to the hospitalized patients in the region’s hospitals including the Medical Tower, the Maternity and Children Hospital and Dhahran General Hospital. He further checked on health services provided for the patients during Eid days. The visit included a number of sections for male inpatients at these hospitals.
In this regard, Al-Hout quoted Al-Shaibani as saying, "The Eid has a special social meaning as it is characterized by the spirit of solidarity inside the same society, especially with the patients in the hospitals who are in an urgent need for the moral and physiological support. In fact, the Eid is a good opportunity for touching patients’ feelings and needs."
