Al-Seef Hospital opens in Kuwait, 3 more hospitals soon
KUWAIT: The United Medical Services group has announced the launch of one of its hospitals. After years of continuous hard work, the first phase of Al-Seef Hospital which overlooks the tranquil Arabian Gulf was opened on Sunday. It will offer the latest and most sophisticated in medical technology to citizens as well as residents. However, the official launch of the hospital has been planned for April 2010.
The first phase’s opening was inaugurated by Sheikh Ahmad Al-Fahad Al-Sabah, Minister for Housing and Economic Development. "Al-Seef Hospital will provide health care by combining modernity and quality. Apart from being a well-designed hospital, it is complete in itself that combines complex health services. We hope that this hospital will provide additional health services that cater to the public," he noted.
Sheikh Ahmad said that the hospital’s management faces a shortage in financial resources. "Although the economic situation isn’t at its best, the board of directors and the shareholders of Al- Seef Hospital are keen to execute this project. This reflects their interest in the country’s public welfare," he added.
The health sector has been making marked improvements. "Soon, three hospitals will be established. We are also working on the Six Towers project, that will be completed in less than two years’ time according to the work plan. This is in addition to the Sheikh Jaber Hospital which has the capacity to lodge more than 1,000 beds. Also, new projects will be put forward as part of the current five years’ plan. It will then have a total capacity of 7,000-8,000 beds in all," pointed out Sheikh Ahmad Al-Fahad Al-Sabah.
Also, more projects will be executed. "Negotiations are in progress to establish three companies, warehouses, low-cost homes, and a expatriates health insurance center within the next six months," stressed Al-Fahad.
Al-Seef Hospital is expected to be of benefit to Kuwaiti society. "This hospital will be prove beneficial to everyone living in Kuwait. We are always committed to providing the best health care services to our society. Al-Seef Hospital stands proof to that. We are proud of our accomplishment and all efforts that have been exerted toward making this project possible," expressed Hind Al-Gharabally V.P of Marketing and PR.
The largest private and most technologically advanced hospital in the Middle East will offer services to the whole family including services in pediatric, obstetrics and gynecology, dental, dermatology, venerology, physiotherapy and nutrition services to name some. In addition, Al-Seef Hospital also has specialized health care units for children and women like the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), the Special Care Baby Unit (SCBU) and the plastic surgery unit.
The strategy incorporated in building Al-Seef Hospital is based on two main pillars, "First to offer the best medical services through advanced techniques and special care, and serving our society by putting in our best efforts and investing in developing premium health care sector in Kuwait. It is our pleasure to invite everyone to come and visit Al-Seef Hospital, to take advantage of the care we provide," concluded Al-Gharabally.
