HMC’s home healthcare services now in Al Khor too


The Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) has opened Home Healthcare Services’ new office in Al Khor to accommodate patients living in the north of Qatar.



The office will provide administrative support for Home Healthcare Services to patients and families from Al Khor and the surrounding region, which will serve as a base from which the healthcare teams will conduct their home visits.

The expansion comes as HMC continues to upgrade its public healthcare services as part of a facilities master plan that aims to enhance nationwide clinical services and focus additional resources on patient-centred care.
Minister of Public Health HE Dr Hanan Mohamed al-Kuwari said the new offices are part of a planned expansion of community-based health services across the country.

“Goal one in Qatar’s National Health Strategy is to shift the balance of care towards a preventative model and develop community-based settings that ensure access to the right care, in the right setting, at the right time,” HE al-Kuwari said.

“The new Home Healthcare Services Al Khor branch office is an excellent example of this strategy in action and will be of significant benefit to those in the community that require these services,” she added.

HMC chief of continuing care group, Mahmoud al-Raisi, said that Qatar’s premier public healthcare provider has recently opened several community-based services for long-term care, mental health, and home-based care.

“Over the past 18 months, HMC has established a number of community-based facilities to serve Qatar’s growing population, including the Enaya Specialised Care Centre, the Enaya Continuing Care Centre in Muaither, and an overall expansion of community-based mental health services. The Home Healthcare Services office in Al Khor continues this trend of bringing services closer to the community,” said al-Raisi.

Home Healthcare Services include home visits by doctors, nurses and allied health professionals who perform a variety of medical support procedures including oxygen administration, catheter changes and a number of therapies such as respiratory, physical, occupational and speech therapy, as well as other services.

Patients or family members can request Home Healthcare Services and other related home healthcare resources by referral from their doctor. The service is available 7am to 3pm from Sunday to Thursday.
