The center also treats female urinary incontinence using a tape, the latest technology in the field.

This is the only center in Madinah performing all urinary disorders surgeries. The Center receives a significant number of patients, both through the hospital and the outpatient clinics, with over 8,320 outpatients treated and 287 surgeries done last year.

Al-Ansar Hospital features a 100-bed capacity, serving citizens, visitors and Umrah performers, due to its strategic location near to the Prophet's Mosque.

The program is in line with the National Transformation Plan 2020 towards achieving the Kingdom's Vision 2030. The program covers 70 hospitals and features over 40 indicators to measure the performance of seven key therapeutic aspects, which have positively reduced the waiting times.
