17 October 2013
The Commander of Command and Control at the Ministry of Interior, Major-General Sulaiman bin Abdulaziz al-Yahia, has lauded the services provided by the Ministry of Health for the 'guests of Allah' (pilgrims). He particularly commended the Ministry's ability to harness modern technology for serving pilgrims.
In a press statement, he said, “What I saw in the Mina Emergency Hospital, from the Command and Control Room, is so impressive, both in terms of the high technology used, the concerted efforts made in receiving patients, and the connection of health services across the Kingdom.”
“To tell the truth,” he added, “strenuous efforts are exerted by the Ministry of Health, as manifested in the provision of treatment wherever the need be.
As for the treatment provided for pilgrims, the Ministry conducts cardiac operations and gives dialysis sessions.
Such diseases, thus, have become less troublesome for pilgrims, given they can have easy access to the sound treatment in the Holy Sites.”
His Excellency the Minister of Health had met at his office at Mina General Hospital, on Wednesday, with The Commander of Command and Control at the Ministry of Interior, Major-General Sulaiman bin Abdulaziz al-Yahia.
They exchanged talks and discussed the aspects of cooperation between the Ministry of Health and the Command and Control Center at the Ministry of Interior.
During his visit, al-Yahia has had a closer look at the therapeutic and preventive services provided by the Ministry of Health for pilgrims.
He also toured through the hospitals sections and departments, where he saw the equipments available at the hospitals, the health services provided for frequenters, and how emergency cases are received.
The Major-General also paid a visit to the hospital's Operations, Command and Control Center, where all the MOH hospitals at the Holy Sites, Makkah, Madinah and Jeddah are overseen.
Officials of the center have given an elaborate account of the method of managing health services, following up workflow, and handling emergency cases, by harnessing all the modern potentials and technologies.
Al-Yahia pointed out that this visit comes within the framework of the integration and joint cooperation between the two ministries.
“Being governmental sectors, we are all aware that no sector can do without the other sectors,” he concluded.
