Dr. Al-Rabeeah Inspects Arafat Hospitals, Checks on Patients and Visitors
14 October 2013
His Excellency the Minister of Health, Dr. Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al-Rabeeah, has attributed the low number of inpatients and visitors at Mount Arafat's hospitals to two reasons.
The first reason is the reduction of the number of pilgrims by 20 percent compared to the previous Hajj years.
The second reason is the success of the health awareness campaigns and requirements after publishing them on the entry ports. Dr. Al-Rabeeah further highlighted that such procedures helped significantly decrease the numbers of patients.
Within the same vein, Dr. Al-Rabeeah revealed that the Ministry of Health (MOH) reviews a study to renew the building of the Arafat General Hospital in the coming years, pointing out that the MOH is primarily interested in security, safety and health of pilgrims.
Meanwhile, Dr. Al-Rabeeah delivered the message of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, May Allah protect him, to the patients. In this message, King Abdullah emphasized that the Saudi government exerts its utmost efforts to provide the best health services for patients in order to ensure their safety; that is to be added to listening to their comments and complaints, and seeking to solve them.
For his part, Dr. Al-Rabeeah urged the medical and technical teams to receive patients warmly and provide high-quality medical services for them.
It is worth mentioning that the Minister of Health, Dr. Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al-Rabeeah, had made an inspection tour to the Arafat General Hospital and Jabal Al-Rahmah Hospital today (Monday) afternoon 9/12/1434H (corresponding to 14/10/2013) in order to assess the workflow in these hospitals, inspect the services rendered to pilgrims, and make sure that these facilities are ready to provide the best healthcare services for patients.
Dr. Al-Rabeeah has started the inspection tour by visiting the inpatients at the Arafat General Hospital.
In addition, Dr. Al-Rabeeah had a look over the workflow in the special care departments at the hospital and met with a number of pilgrims who thanked him for the health services provided for them.
Afterwards, Dr. Al-Rabeeah headed to the Jabal Al-Rahmah Hospital at Mount Arafat; where he inspected the hospital departments and assessed the workflow and services provided for pilgrims. Moreover, Dr. Al-Rabeeah visited the inpatients.
In the same vein, the MOH hospitals and health centers located at Mount Arafat have continued providing health services for pilgrims, receiving the emergency cases, and dealing with them. The Arafat General Hospital has performed during the past 48 hours two binoculars, in addition to a number of dialysis operations for pilgrims.
