    Bringing Care Closer to the Industrial Area Community

     Ahead of the official opening in the coming months, Hazm Mebaireek General Hospital (HMGH) has welcomed the first outpatients to its internal medicine clinics.

    Located in the heart of the Industrial Area of Doha, when fully open Hazm Mebaireek General Hospital will join Hamad Medical Corporation’s (HMC) network of specialist and community hospitals and will be dedicated to caring for adult males living and working in the Industrial Area of Doha. Offering a range of outpatient clinics and clinical support services, the new hospital will also provide inpatient care, surgical services, and emergency care. These services will be opened in phases during the coming months. 

    By bringing care closer to where it is needed in the community, HMC’s newest hospital is expected to relieve some of the pressure on other hospitals and clinics, particularly emergency services at Hamad General Hospital and Al Wakra Hospital.  

    Mr. Hamad Al Khalifa, HMC’s Chief of Healthcare Facilities said when fully open, Hazm Mebaireek General Hospital will offer a range of services and facilities, helping to meet the healthcare demands of Qatar’s growing population.

    “Late last year His Highness the Amir Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al Thani officially opened HMC’s three new Medical City hospitals, significantly expanding our ability to care for patients. I am extremely proud that we can now build upon this success as we start to see patients at Hazm Mebaireek General Hospital, said Mr. Al Khalifa.”

    “When fully open, HMGH will offer the same high standard of facilities, services, and care we have seen at all of Hamad’s hospitals. It will provide all adult males, from Qataris to expatriate laborers, with the best possible care right here within the heart of the Industrial Area community,” added Mr. Al Khalifa. 

    Mr. Wilson Ross, Acting CEO of Hazm Mebaireek General Hospital said the opening of outpatient clinics at the new hospital is the result of many years of careful planning and hard work. He said it is the first step towards the hospital becoming fully operational.

    “In the coming months, we look forward to opening more services and are extremely proud to have been able to welcome the first patients to our wonderful new facility. We believe this hospital will truly change the lives of the people living and working in the Industrial Area by providing them with care right here in the community. This new hospital builds upon our commitment to provide patients with easier access to care and an improved patient experience. Additionally, we are working closely with our Primary Health Care Corporation and Qatar Red Crescent colleagues to ensure the journey between primary and secondary care is as smooth and seamless as possible.”

    Mr. Hussein Ishaq, Executive Director of Hazm Mebaireek General Hospital, reinforced the significance of having a hospital located in the heart of the Industrial Area. 

    “HMC has been the leading healthcare provider in Qatar for nearly 40 years and this new hospital will ensure we continue to provide world-class care for generations to come. Once fully operational, HMGH will have a major positive impact on health services in Qatar, and in particular for patients located in the Industrial Area. These patients will no longer need to travel to Doha for care, and the new hospital will also help to reduce the burden on our busy hospitals in Doha,” said Mr. Ishaq.

    “The opening of this new hospital underscores the importance both the State of Qatar and HMC place on providing community-based quality healthcare to all residents in a fair and equitable manner. Our staff is ready and eager to welcome patients to the new hospital,” added Mr. Ishaq.
