The Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) outpatient clinics of the Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) recently moved from Hamad General Hospital to the Ambulatory Care Centre at Hamad Bin Khalifa Medical City. The move is part of HMC’s efforts to expand services and improve patient care.
The relocation of ENT outpatient clinics to the Ambulatory Care Centre follows the transfer of the ENT surgery service from Hamad General Hospital late last year. Patients are now able to receive medical and surgical care for disorders and defects of the ears, nose, throat, head, and neck in a single location.
Speaking on how patients will benefit from the move, Dr Khalid Mohammed Al Jalham, Director of the Ambulatory Care Centre said they work hard to ensure patients are able to access the care they need in a single convenient location.
Dr Abdul Salam Al Qahtani, Head of ENT at the Ambulatory Care Centre, also emphasised the enhanced quality of care patients can expect to receive at the new facility.
Towards the end of last year we began to move all ENT surgery services from Hamad General Hospital to the Ambulatory Care Centre. This move is now complete and feedback from patients has been extremely positive. Many of our patients have spoken of the excellent care and service they received and their satisfaction with the quality of the facility itself. We are now looking forward to providing our ENT outpatients with the same level of care and service and are really looking forward to welcoming them to our wonderful new hospital.’
The Ambulatory Care Centre is one of HMC’s three new Hamad Bin Khalifa Medical City hospitals opened in December 2017 by His Highness Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al Thani, the Emir of Qatar. The facility, which specialises in outpatient care and day surgery, began welcoming patients last May with the opening of the Podiatry Clinic. To date, more than 40,000 patient visits have been received at the Ambulatory Care Centre. Additional services will also be moving to the new facility, with ophthalmology outpatient services scheduled to relocate later this year.
