Throughout the past 40 years HMC has undergone massive transformation across all areas. This journey has seen not only capacity expansion, but major advances in quality of care. Hamad is now a healthcare provider that measures itself against the leading healthcare providers in the world.
A commitment to quality improvement
HMC has sought and achieved accreditation from leading organizations across many areas. Accreditation demonstrates our ability to deliver the very highest international standards of care to our patients. HMC remains the only hospital system outside of the United States to achieve corporate Academic Medical Center accreditation from the Joint Commission International for all its hospitals simultaneously. Our Ambulance Service, Home Healthcare Service, Stroke Service and Palliative Care have also received prestigious JCI accreditation, while our Trauma System, Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology College, nursing education and fellowship programs have all been accredited for the quality of service they provide.
HMC has opened a wide range of advanced medical equipment and technology to help provide the very best specialist services for patients. This includes the PET-CT Center for the care of cancer patients, the Neuroangiography Suite for the treatment of patients with serious blood vessel disorders in the brain and spine, and pharmacy robots to increase safety and efficiency in the dispensing of medications.
HMC has opened new hospitals and facilities across its network at an unprecedented rate. These facilities provide work-class environments in which HMC’s dedicated teams can deliver high-quality care to patients. Facilities such as the new Medical City hospitals – Qatar Rehabilitation Institute, Women’s Wellness and Research Center and Ambulatory Care Center – and the Trauma and Emergency Center are among the best healthcare facilities in the region.
As Qatar’s population has grown so too has the demand for healthcare services. To meet this demand HMC has expanded its workforce throughout the past four decades. Combining a strong core Qatari workforce with staff recruited from across the world, HMC has developed a highly-skilled and dedicated workforce to deliver a wide range of healthcare services to Qatar’s population.
