Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) Women’s Wellness and Research Center (WWRC) welcomed the first baby born at the new hospital who was named Tamim, after HH Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al Thani. The WWRC is dedicated to caring for women.
The Qatari parents welcomed baby Tamim on 3 December. Weighing 3.2 kilogrammes, baby Tamim was delivered by a member of the highly specialised obstetric team in one of the hospital’s new state-of-the-art operating theatres. Dr Hanan Mohamed Al Kuwari, Minister of Public Health, visited the family to offer her congratulations and present Tamim’s mother and the newborn with a special gift.
Dr Al Kuwari said they are extremely proud to welcome the first baby born at the WWRC, the largest women’s tertiary hospital in the country.
The birth of baby Tamim marks a major milestone in our journey towards the full opening of our new facility, which has been carefully designed to provide the women of Qatar with specialist care throughout all stages of their lives.’
Over the next few months, the WWRC will gradually increase the number of women delivering babies at the facility as it works towards operating at full capacity. The Women’s Hospital will remain open and will continue to run inpatient services until the new hospital is fully operational.
To date, more than 2,000 women have been scheduled at the WWRC for various outpatient clinics, including gyne-oncology, uro-gynecology, and well-baby clinics, as well as the Specialist Gynecology Day Care Surgery Unit which successfully operated on its first patients recently.
