COVID Facilities and Services

Qatar’s healthcare sector is strongly prepared to manage a potential outbreak of COVID-19 in the country.

Hamad Medical Corporation has dedicated a number of facilities and services for the treatment and care of COVID-19 patients where they will receive treatment to manage their symptoms while being closely monitored. 

Communicable Disease Center

The Communicable Disease Center (CDC) is a 65-bed, single inpatient room specialist tertiary center with outpatient services, that aims to support and treat patients with a spectrum of communicable diseases. It has been purpose-built with the mission to detect, treat and prevent infectious diseases in Qatar and is at the center of our fight against COVID-19. The Communicable Disease Center is purpose-built to manage patients with this type of condition and ensure that the virus is not spread to other people within the hospital or outside.

Hazm Mebeireek General Hospital

One of HMC’s newest facilities, Hazm Mebeireek General Hospital provides a modern, state-of-the-art environment in which to treat male and female patients of all nationalities with COVID-19. 

All ambulatory services at HMGH have been temporarily suspended until further notice. The hospital’s Emergency Department remains open as normal to treat life-threatening emergency medical conditions.

Ras Laffan Hospital and Mesaieed Hospital

Our two newest hospitals, both opened in 2020, have been designated to care for COVID-19 patients. The opening of these new hospitals increases the health system’s capacity by over 400 acute beds for COVID-19 patients and that the country is able to expand that even further if the need arises.

Department of Laboratory, Medicine and Pathology

The Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology of the HMC is playing a pivotal role in combatting COVID-19 and its spread in Qatar.

The DLMP is proud to have at its disposal the latest state-of-the-art technology, robust processes and workforce professional expertise to  respond to the COVID-19 challenges. It has responded to the spread of this virus since its emergence in February 2020 in Qatar.

The laboratory has increased its capacity in response to the increasing demand of testing by using the most modern automated technology to maximize the number of samples tested in order to assist in the most rapid identification of positive COVID-19 cases. The new technology and expanded facilities we have put in place have enabled us to carry out more tests and at the same time ensuring safety and accuracy.

HMC’s Ambulance Service staff have been fully trained to safely transfer and manage patients with this type of communicable virus, while preventing further spread.
