The new Ambulatory Care Center (ACC) – part of Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) – focuses on delivering outpatient and day surgery services in Hamad Bin Khalifa Medical City
Ambulatory care includes surgical day care and outpatient clinical services and Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) is among the growing number of healthcare providers designing and building facilities to cater for short term surgical stays of less than 24 hours.
The facility is equipped with 66 beds – 12 pre-operation bed spaces and 54 post-anesthesia care unit (PACU) recovery beds. In addition there is 14 operating theaters.
The 33,400-square-meter ACC offers urology, podiatry, gastroenterology, otolaryngology, audiology and ophthalmology services. It also houses a pre-assessment clinic where patients undergo a thorough medical evaluation to ensure readiness for surgery.
The patient care process is designed to produce the best possible clinical outcome, maximize access and convenience for our patients as well as offer as many treatments and procedures as possible on an ambulatory basis.
This means that patients will avoid unnecessary hospitals stays and recover in their own home environments with follow-up care.
