Ashghal inaugurates two new advanced health centres in Qatar; Al Ghuwairiya and Al Karaana Health Centres enter operational phase
With the opening of Al Ghuwairiya and Al Karaana Health Centres this past week; new health centres have entered the operational phase opening their doors to citizens and residents.
The two centres are the first advanced health centres to open in Qatar as part of a plan to build new and improved health centres aiming to provide advanced primary healthcare services in Qatar. This plan is being implemented by Ashghal in cooperation with the Supreme Council of Health and the Primary Healthcare Corporation.
The new health centres, including both Al Ghuwairiya and Al Karaana Health Centres are larger in size as compared to older healthcare centres. This will increase the centres’ capacity in terms of building more multi-specialty internal clinics, hence receiving a larger number of patients and providing a greater number of parking spaces.
Both centres include clinics for men and women, as well as dental clinics, outpatient clinics, radiology centres, a pharmacy, a laboratory, and other specialised clinics. The centres have several main entrances some of which are dedicated for emergency use while the remaining are for staff, visitors and patients who have also been allocated shaded parking spaces.
The reception and waiting areas are designed to have an abundance of natural daylight while the centres’ façades have a distinctive artistic design that includes glass engravings and hanging canopies.
