We explore the Tertiary Care facilities and services at AMH’s newest facility, King Hamad American Mission Hospital (KHAMH).

“We now serve as a Tertiary Care centre, from our fifth, our largest, and our newest hospital facility,” states Chief Executive of the 120-year-old American Mission Hospital network, Dr. George Cheriyan.  

Since March 2023, the new King Hamad American Mission Hospital, a state-of-the-art futuristic facility in A’Ali, has been receiving patients both at its in-patient facility with a 125-bed capacity, as well as at its outpatient clinics. 

With a well-equipped and well-manned Emergency Medicine department, the admission and treatment of critically ill patients at the intensive care units is being done quickly and efficiently. 

“The hospital strives to be a centre of excellence for surgical services,” says Chief of Medical Staff and Medical Director of King Hamad American Mission Hospital, Dr. Deepak Abraham. “The modular operating rooms along with a skilled surgical workforce are well equipped to handle joint replacements of both the hip and the knee, advanced general surgery (both open and minimally invasive), bariatric surgery, minimally invasive urological procedures and stone diseases.”

In addition, the state-of-the-art hospital boasts an extensively-staffed ENT department providing outpatient care and in patient services. The hospital is equipped with a unique hybrid operating room which can combine open as well image-guided peripheral vascular procedures.

The radiology department is equipped with a 128-slice CT scan, 1.5 Tesla MRI, fluoroscopy and advanced digital mammography, providing a comprehensive imaging service. The endoscopy suite provides both diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopic services with a fully functional pediatric and adult gastroenterology department. In addition, the dialysis unit has the provision to take care of 20 patients simultaneously for dialysis, and over 120 in a day.

The labour and delivery suites are also well equipped and carefully planned for a memorable experience for the mother and baby. Furthermore, the pediatric department has consultants to cover gastroenterology, endocrinology, nephrology, neurology and cardiology apart from general pediatrics, and offers outpatient, pediatric emergency and inpatient services.

While the expert physicians and specialised equipment effectively create a world class offering, the ambience of the KHAMH deluxe rooms and royal suites prove to be the icing on the cake.
