Sidra Medicine, a specialty children’s, young people and women’s healthcare organization and member of Qatar Foundation for Education, Science and Community Development (QF), today opened its new hospital building and welcomed the first inpatients to be treated in the state-of-the-art facility.
The first inpatients to be seen by Sidra Medicine will be children requiring low-risk surgeries and women undergoing elective C-sections. These services will be ramped up through mid-2018 to include more complex pediatric surgeries, specialist pediatric services in neurology and cardiology, among others, as well as deliveries, focusing on high-risk pregnancies.
“The clinical teams at Sidra Medicine are some of the best in the world. They have been united by a passion to deliver the very best care to women, young people and children in Qatar and will be trusted partners throughout the journeys that our patients will take with us. As a state-of-the-art facility handling high-risk and specialty cases, our approach to opening is necessarily phased to allow for proper testing at each stage. The safety and comfort of our patients is of utmost importance and we look forward to welcoming them,” said Sidra Medicine CEO Peter Morris.
