Hamad Medical Corporation continues work to upgrade critical care services
Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) is undertaking infrastructure upgrades and maintenance work at Hamad General Hospital (HGH) to ensure the safest, most effective and compassionate care to patients.
In order to facilitate these improvements to the facilities and services including enhancing and expanding our critical care services, HGH has undertaken essential maintenance work over two weekends.
The final phase of this work will take place on 27 and 28 March, 2015 and some areas of the hospital will be without power for part of the day on both days.
This work has been carefully planned by engineering experts in partnership with our clinical teams so that we expect full power to be restored within hours to each area impacted. To ensure minimal disruption to patients and visitors, measures will be taken to ensure seamless and high quality care to patients.
A portion of the HGH Emergency Department will be without power but will continue to take walk-in patients and trauma cases. However non-urgent cases transported by ambulance may be diverted to other hospitals in the HMC system.
