Hamad Medical Corporation has been Qatar’s principal public healthcare provider for more than three decades and is dedicated to delivering the safest, most effective and compassionate care to all patients. Managing eight hospitals and operating the national Ambulance Service and a Home Healthcare Service, Hamad is building a legacy of healthcare expertise through excellence in clinical care, medical education and research. All of HMC’s hospitals, as well as the Ambulance Service and Home Healthcare Service, are accredited by the Joint Commission International, which recognizes high quality healthcare organizations.
In 2013, HMC became the first hospital system in the Middle East to achieve accreditation from the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education - International (ACGME-I), which demonstrates excellence in the way medical graduates are trained through residency, internship and fellowship programs. Additionally, HMC’s Department of Laboratory Medicine and Pathology is accredited by the prestigious College of American Pathologists, recognizing its positive impact on patient care. HMC plays a key role in many areas of Qatar’s National Health Strategy, including diabetes, cancer, organ transplantation and mental health. Academic health is central to HMC’s healthcare vision, which, at its heart, combines innovative research, top class education and excellent clinical care.
HMC has kept pace with the rapid growth and development of the nation in recent decades. This progress is evident in both the expansion of facilities to meet demand as well as improved quality of care. Three new state-of-the-art facilities have been opened since 2011: Al Wakra Hospital, The Cuban Hospital and Heart Hospital, and HMC is in the early stages of planning and delivery on one of the most ambitious hospital building programs currently underway anywhere in the world that will significantly expand capacity.
Hamad Hospital Services
The Ambulance Service fulfills an essential life-saving role for the people of Qatar. Every incident that the Ambulance Service is called to offers different challenges in terms of the injuries faced, the number of people affected, the location and the support required. The Ambulance Service receives more than 130,000 calls each year to which ambulance teams respond, using our fleet of ambulances, rapid response vehicles and LifeFlight helicopters. In addition to being accredited by JCI, the Ambulance Service’s Medical Communication Center was recently named an Accredited Center of Excellence (ACE).
Hamad General Hospital
Hamad General Hospital is a 600-bed facility offering highly specialized and complex care to the people of Qatar. It offers a wide range of medical care and clinical services, including trauma, emergency medicine, pediatrics, critical care, specialized and sub-specialized surgery, specialized medicine, laboratory medicine, diagnostic imaging and acute adult rehabilitation services.

The high standard trauma services at HMC received World Health Organization’s (WHO) recognition and the Trauma Center has recently received the Trauma Distinction Accreditation from Accreditation Canada International (ACI). Within the Emergency Department, the use of the ‘see and treat’ model of care for less critical patients has dramatically reduced patient waiting times and enhanced the patient experience.
The National Diabetes Center opened in 2013 provides Qatar’s diabetic population with improved patient care and access to specialized services through a multi-disciplinary approach. The hospital has developed a highly regarded Robotics Surgery Program, which is one of many service offerings provided by its well established surgical department that has developed into a multi-sub-specialized surgical center of excellence. Hamad General Hospital has a strong partnership with Weill Cornell Medical School in Qatar, and around 400 residents rotate through its services yearly. We also collaborate closely with the University of Calgary to support its nursing program and many of the brightest nursing graduates join our hospital each year.
Al Khor Hospital
Al Khor Hospital provides healthcare services to the growing population in the northern region of Qatar. Prior to the opening of the 110-bed hospital, people living in the Al Khor area would need to travel to Doha for much of their healthcare needs. Al Khor Hospital’s Breastfeeding Management and Resource Center, Qatar’s first integrated multidisciplinary breastfeeding management program, recently received prestigious awards from the Dubai Health Authority and the International Lactation Consultant Association, USA. A new Pediatric Emergency Care and Dialysis Unit have been opened at the hospital further adding to the healthcare facilities available to the community.
Al Wakra Hospital
Al Wakra Hospital (AWH) is the newest of Hamad Medical Corporation’s hospitals. Opened in 2012, this impressive general hospital has been designed, built and staffed with the changing needs and expectations of the growing community in the country’s south in mind. AWH provides comprehensive, high quality healthcare to people of all ages, from emergency care, to general medicine and surgery and highly specialized treatments. AWH is committed to delivering diagnostic and treatment services to its patients in an integrated and efficient way.
A second National Diabetes Center was launched at the hospital in late 2014 to improve access to specialized care for diabetics living in Al Wakra. The local community has greatly benefitted since the opening of AWH as they are now able to access state-of-the-art healthcare services close to home and no longer need to travel to Doha for much of their hospital care.
The Cuban Hospital
Located in Dukhan in the west of the country, The Cuban Hospital (CH) is a joint venture project between the State of Qatar and the Cuban Government. Formerly known as Dukhan Hospital, the name was changed in November 2011 to highlight the special partnership that exists between Qatar and the nation of Cuba. Officially opened in January 2012, the hospital’s Cuban medical staff services the healthcare needs of the population in the west of Qatar. Cuba’s own healthcare system is well respected around the world and the close ties with Qatar ensure the hospital provides a high level of patient-centered healthcare. The Cuban Hospital provides a full range of community general hospital physician and surgical disciplines. In addition, it has a Rehabilitation Center with a hydrotherapy pool, and a specialist dental service.

NCCCR also treats blood conditions and will soon be opening the first Center for Bone Marrow Transplants in Qatar.NCCCR adopts cutting edge technology and the latest methodologies to provide world class cancer therapies. Education and research programs are a strong focus for staff at NCCCR and these pillars can be translated into improvements to patient care.
The National Cancer Strategy for Qatar, which was launched in 2011, stipulates a number of recommendations for improving the cancer journey for patients and these recommendations translate to direct improvements in patient care at NCCCR. The NCCCR aims to provide the safest, most effective and most compassionate care to each and every one of its patients, at every stage of their life. In January 2015, the NCCCR opened the Supportive and Palliative Care Unit for patients who need help with symptom control in the late stages of their illnesses. They can receive the care they need in privacy and with dignity at the unit.
Rumailah Hospital is the oldest general hospital in the State of Qatar. It operates over seven different sites, with more than 540 beds and a multi-national workforce of more than 2,000 employees.

Walk in Centers/ Pediatric Emergency Centers:
A National network of Walk in Centers operates across Qatar to see emergency presentations of patients with minor injury and illness. This includes two purpose built units in Hamad International Airport, a service which will expand to three clinics in the near future. These clinics allow rapid access to specialist Emergency Doctors for patients who do not need to access the larger Emergency Departments. The Pediatric Emergency Centers offer rapid access to a specialized pediatric emergency team 24 hours a day.
