05 February 2018

A team of orthopedic surgeons at King Khaled Hospital- Hail has successfully conducted 15 orthopedic procedures in 24 hours. A number of emergency cases, in addition to the scheduled ones, forced the medical team to operate four operating rooms simultaneously. This remarkable medical achievement required coordination and cooperation from all concerned divisions, as both orthopedic and emergency sections were covered during the same time as the surgeries.  The team's efforts have been crowned with success for all surgeries, thank Allah. 

It is noteworthy that King Khaled Hospital (with 365-bed capacity) is the main reference hospital in Hail. Its health services witness great development.
