Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) announced that following their designation as COVID-19 facilities, Hazm Mebaireek General Hospital and The Cuban Hospital are returning to normal operations and will be providing their full range of healthcare services to patients.

From Sunday, 6 March, HMC will resume delivery of in-person outpatient appointments at full capacity, following a reduction in face-to-face capacity throughout the recent COVID-19 wave in order to protect patients, visitors and healthcare staff.

The return to normal service delivery comes following the significant decline in COVID-19 cases in Qatar in recent weeks after the Omicron wave of the virus. At the height of the Omicron wave, over 700 patients with COVID-19 were admitted to HMC facilities, but the recent fall in cases has seen this number reduce substantially, with around only 50 patients currently admitted to hospitals. The HMC’s Communicable Disease Center and the Field Hospital located at the Hazm Mebaireek campus continue to provide advanced care for patients with COVID-19 requiring hospital admission.

Hazm Mebaireek General Hospital and The Cuban Hospital have both played important roles throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, treating patients with moderate and severe COVID-19 symptoms requiring hospitalisation.

The dedication and expertise of the healthcare teams at these facilities have been central to achieving HMC’s commitment to providing high-quality specialist care to all COVID-19 patients without delay throughout the pandemic and has been an important factor in Qatar having one of the lowest COVID-19 mortality rates in the world.
