05 March 2018

​The Saudi Commission for Health Specialties (SCFHS) has accredited the Neonatology Department of King Fahad Central Hospital- Jazan as a training group under Saudi fellowship program. The accreditation is the first-of-its-kind for a delicate specialty, adding to a list of previous accreditations for a number of departments and centers in the hospital. ​

It is also noted that MoH has increased the bed capacity of its hospitals in 2017 by 1822 beds, thus, making 43,675 beds in total instead of 41,835 beds. This is part of MoH’s endeavors to enhance hospital’s bed capacity for hospitalization and to reduce hospitalization waiting lists. By Allah’s Grace, this has positively improved MoH’s medical services and boosted patient satisfaction. To that end, MoH has inaugurated new hospitals, and geared up the present capacity of hospitals by recruiting more doctors and adding more beds.

In its report of achievements in 2017, MoH stated that one-day surgeries increased from 44% to 55%. Also, waiting lists were reduced through supplying health facilities with needed appliances for one-day surgeries, in addition to key indicators to increase the number of this type of procedures.
