05 March 2018

​By Allah's Grace, a medical team at Maternity and Children Hospital- Al-Ahsa has successfully excised a fibroma (12x11x8 cm) from a 17-year-old girl who has been suffering from abdominal pain and recurrent bleeding. After due medical examinations, the medical team performed a laparoscopic procedure, and through a surgical incision in the abdomen (1.5 cm), they managed to remove the tumor. The patient was discharged from the hospital in a good health, thank Allah.   ​

It is worth mentioning that MOH has increased the bed capacity of its hospitals in 2017 by 1,822 beds; thus, making 43,675 beds in total instead of 41,835 beds. This came as part of MOH’s endeavors to enhance hospital’s bed capacity for inpatient wards 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 2017 achievements report, MOH stated that one-day surgeries increased from 44% to 55% (with 112,095 one-day surgeries). 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 surgeries.
