According to Jazan Health Affairs, a medical team at Samtah General Hospital has successfully conducted a submandibular salivary gland surgery for a woman. After due medical examinations, she was diagnosed with a salivary gland stone below her lower jaw. By Allah’s Grace, she was discharged from hospital in good health.

It is noted that Samtah General Hospital (with a 150-bed capacity) is one of the biggest hospitals in the region, serving a large number of patients.

It is worth mentioning that the Ministry of Health (MOH) has launched a daily specialization-based e-waiting list for surgical operations on its online portal. The list features MOH hospitals, along with surgical specialties and corresponding waiting days respectively, in addition to five levels for waiting days, starting from one to 180 days. By launching this initiative, MOH aims to update all patients and beneficiaries of services provided by its health facilities on the developmental efforts for boosting performance levels and providing high-quality services to satisfy and meet the health needs of citizens.
