Additionally, the National Ambulance Service, Home Healthcare Service, Stroke Service and Palliative Care, have all received this prestigious accreditation since 2011.

This expansion plan includes the three newly opened hospitals in Hamad Bin Khalifa Medical City comprising Qatar Rehabilitation Institute, Ambulatory Care Center and Women’s Wellness and Research Center.  Also, a series of facilities, including Hazm Mebaireek General Hospital (HMGH) in the Industrial Area of Doha and the Simulation Center for Professional Education located within Hamad bin Khalifa Medical City, are nearing completion. Finishing touches are also being made to Hamad General Hospital’s new Trauma and Emergency Department which is scheduled to open in 2019.  

The new and enhanced facilities and network of services will support and reinforce HMC’s ongoing efforts to provide the safest, most effective and compassionate care to each and every one of our patients, both now and in the future.
