Enhancing healthcare options for the residential community in Al Hail and surrounding areas, NMC Health launched its third multispecialty hospital recently.
With competent outpatient and inpatient services, the hospital not only addresses the medical gap in the area but also brings qualified clinicians, advanced medical technologies and facilities to citizens and residents.
The inauguration of the new facility was officiated by HE Sheikh Mohammed bin Marhoon Al Mammari, State Counsellor along with Prasanth Manghat, CEO of NMC Health in Oman in the presence of officials from the Ministry of Health and staff members.
The Undersecretary, Advisor of Health Affairs , Dr Sultan bin Ya’arub Al Busaidi from Ministry of Health congratulated everyone present at the event and said, “The Sultanate of Oman welcomes global players like NMC Health who are genuinely interested in creating the overall welfare of the community via a provision of quality and affordable healthcare.”
Speaking on the occasion, NMC Health CEO and Executive Director Prasanth Manghat said, “NMC Health is committed to working with the Sultanate’s key stakeholders to help foster economic growth through the creation of jobs, economic diversification, as well as the promotion of healthcare tourism to further attract foreign tourists to the Sultanate and the GCC region.”
The Al Hail facility, a top-notch primary and critical care 45 bedded hospital, is equipped with modular operation theatres, ICU beds, Labor and Delivery suites, comfortable inpatient rooms, state of the art laboratories, 15 OPD clinics, and a 24/7 emergency department. The hospital also offers a wide range of specialty facilities including Orthopedics, Urology, Obstetrics, Gynaecology, ENT, Pediatrics, Ophthalmology amongst others. The new modern multi-specialty hospital in the heart of the Seeb district will cater to major areas of Seeb (Mabela, Mawaleh) and Barka. The hospital will serve the approximate population of around half a million of the regions.
Manghat added, “We believe quality healthcare is a fundamental right of every citizen, and we partner with every patient to ensure they receive the best-in-class healthcare services they deserve. The decision to continue expanding into Oman, to become the nation’s leading provider, is driven by NMC’s goal to provide the best possible healthcare to the Omani community, and it further demonstrates our overall commitment to ensuring healthcare for all.”
NMC Healthcare forayed into the Sultanate two years ago with the acquisition of Atlas Hospitals and the then EMC, a premium brand of Cosmetology centre having 5 branches across Oman. Since then the growth has been quite progressive and well accepted by the residents and citizens of Oman.
