​​According to Riyadh Health Affairs, over the past year, Hawtat Bani Tamim Hospital served 143,390 patients, including 107,277 at emergency department and 36,113 at outpatient clinics.​

"During the same period, the hospital performed 753 surgeries, including 202 one-day surgeries, as well as 109,588 lab and x-ray examinations", adds the Affairs. 
In the same vein, primary healthcare centers in Hawtat Bani Tamim served more than 109,132 patients last year. 

On the other hand, in 2017, the Ministry of Health (MOH) increased the cardiac centers by 46%, bringing the total of cardiac centers into 19 instead of 13. This has helped reduced referral of cases to specialized cardiac centers in big cities. As well, it has helped reduce transport and travel costs borne by such centers’ visitors.

This is part of MOH’s 2017 achievements report. This achievement is a direct outcome of building the right infrastructures, equipping cardiac centers and recruiting highly qualified doctors and visiting doctors to these centers.

In the same report, MOH also announced adding 89 new dental clinics in 2017, thus, bringing the total of dental clinics into 3,081 instead 2,992. This has helped boost health services quality and facilitate access to dental services through additional dental clinics across health centers and hospitals.
