Saudi health minister visits medical projects in Qassim

  • Saudi Arabia’s Minister of Health Tawfiq bin Fawzan Al-Rabiah visited several health care institutions and development projects in Qassim on Thursday.
  • He stressed that his ministry is keen to learn about and address the challenges facing health care and medical services in the province.

JEDDAH: Saudi Arabia’s Minister of Health Tawfiq bin Fawzan Al-Rabiah visited several health care institutions and development projects in Qassim on Thursday.
He stressed that his ministry is keen to learn about and address the challenges facing health care and medical services in the province and commended the health affairs team for their efforts to improve health and medical services there.
The minister visited the Prince Faisal bin Bandar Cancer Center project, accompanied by Qassim’s director-general of health affairs Mutlaq Al-Khamaly, and witnessed a presentation on the components of the project’s third stage, which cost more than SR 49 million and includes construction, architectural, mechanical, and electrical works.
Al-Rabiah also visited King Fahad Specialist Hospital in Buraydah, where he went over the details of the outpatient environment project and plans to expand and advance the external pharmacy, in addition to inspecting the soon-to-be-launched catheterization and interventional radiology unit, which employs cutting-edge medical diagnosis technology to perform diagnostic and medical procedures without anesthesia. It is widely regarded as a huge step forward for medical services.
The health minister went on to visit the SR 10-million lab automation project — which serves the hormons, chemistry, and blood disease departments — and caught up on the expansion of the recently-launched department of gastroenterology and endoscopy; inaugurated the new office of the health affairs department; inspected the new emergency “ambulance bus,” which is equipped with five beds, and from which medical staff can support emergency services on site; inspected the mobile blood bank; and launched the Qassim Medical Commission’s electronic project, “Inayati,” which has been designed to serve patients wherever they are without them needing to visit the commission’s office.

Jeddah Season provides seasonal employment for young Saudis

JEDDAH: The Jeddah Season festival has provided a wide range of seasonal employment opportunities for young Saudi men and women, helping them gain experience and prepare them to enter the job market.

More than 5,000 young Saudis are working around the clock, each in his or her field, to manage the festival’s activities.

The festival aims to highlight development opportunities in Saudi Arabia, introduce the Kingdom as one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world, support the government’s efforts to empower Saudi youths, support local small and medium enterprises, develop Jeddah’s tourism sector and provide volunteer opportunities.

Jeddah Season, which began on June 8 and runs until July 18, has attracted thousands of visitors of all ages through its 150 local and international events and activities.

It is being held at five sites: King Abdullah Sports City, Al-Hamra Corniche, the Jeddah Waterfront, Obhur and Historic Jeddah (Al-Balad), which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Jeddah Season offers a wide range of tourism, entertainment and cultural events and activities, and sheds light on the city’s status as the Kingdom’s tourism capital. Most of its events are being held for the first time in Saudi Arabia.

Jeddah Season is in line with the Vision 2030 reform plan, which aims to advance the welfare of Saudi society, diversify local development opportunities, improve the Kingdom’s contribution to arts and culture, and create job opportunities for Saudi youths.
