Our dedicated teams have been providing safe, effective and compassionate care to Qatar’s population since Hamad Medical Corporation was established by Emiri decree in 1979.
Under the direction of Qatar’s visionary leaders, we are proud to have delivered a wide range of healthcare services to millions of people throughout the past 40 years.
Good health is central to a productive and fulfilling life. As the main provider of specialist healthcare services in Qatar, Hamad has had an enormous impact on the lives of the nation’s population.
In challenging times, when people fall sick, our doctors, nurses and allied health professionals have been there to look after them. And in times of joy, when welcoming new babies into the world, we have been there to ensure safe delivery.
Looking back over the past 40 years, the rate of progress across Hamad is quite remarkable. It is hard to think of another healthcare provider anywhere in the world that has undergone this scale of transformation.
Hamad has grown from one hospital, Rumailah Hospital, in 1979 to 12 at present while the number of patients being cared for by our teams has grown at an exponential rate. This expansion has been driven by the growth and development of Qatar, under its visionary leaders.
This website provides an overview of some of the key milestones in Hamad’s history, as well as an insight into Hamad’s transformation through the minds of some of our longest-serving employees.
I am truly proud of Hamad’s transformation, not only in terms of capacity but quality as well. Hamad is now a healthcare provider that ranks alongside the world’s best and it is the tens of thousands of dedicated staff who have worked at Hamad over the past 40 years who have driven this success.
