08 March 2018

By Allah’ Grace, a medical team at Al-Mahd Hospital has successfully conducted a sophisticated surgery on a 39-years old ectopic pregnant woman who was suffering from acute hemorrhage which could have led to her death - may Allah forbid. The patient was brought to the hospital’s emergency. Immediately, she was examined by the medical team, which decided to operate on her. Thank Allah the two-and-half-hour surgery has been successful, and the patient is in good health now.

It is worth mentioning that in 2017 Al-Mahd Hospital received over 141,000 outpatients at outpatient clinics, emergency, inpatient wards, in addition to birth cases and surgeries.

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% (with 112,095 one-day surgeries). Also, waiting lists were reduced through suppling health facilities with needed appliances for one-day surgeries, in addition to key indicators to increase the number of this type of surgeries.
