08 March 2018

​The vascular interventional surgical team of Al-Noor Specialist Hospital-Makkah has successfully performed an endovascular stent graft surgery for a 50-year-old patient.


According to the hospital, the patient was suffering from chest pains. Then, he was diagnosed with traumatic aortic rupture, which required the endovascular stent graft surgery. By Allah’s grace, it was successful.

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.
