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.
