Since launching the Home Medicine Program (HMP) in Samtah General Hospital, its home medical professionals conducted 8,232 home visits, benefiting more than 500 patients across Samtah Governorate. The Program keeps on providing its medical services to more than 200 patients, who were enrolled in the program until the end of last year across the governorate, by a medical team enhanced with adequate medical supplies required for patient needs. This team features a physician, 6 nurses (3 males and 3 females), a social worker, a medical secretary, and physiotherapists, providing the best medical services to patients at their homes across the Governorate.

Since 1430H., MOH has provided home medicine services through qualified medical teams across the Kingdom to the eligible patients at their homes and among their families; in an endeavor to enhance their physical and mental health conditions, and to give them and their families peace of mind. Also, the program increases the bed usability turn-over; thus, helping MOH serve more patients at less costs.

It is worth mentioning that the home medicine departments and sections across the Kingdom provide healthcare to patients with the engagement of their families, and meet their needs, in terms of medication and devices, which positively reflects on patients’ psychological, social and health conditions.
