Al-Ahmadi governorate launched new specialized
clinics in the primary care facilities, and also introduced new administrative
methods to enhance service in the governorate.
Head of the Primary Health Care Unit in Al-Ahmadi Governorate Dr. Fahad
Al-Azmi told KUNA, on Wednesday, that the governorate is inhabited by one
third of the total population of Kuwait, and there are also new residential
areas annexed to it with added population, which imposes a great burden on the
medical services and infrastructure.
The new clinics would help patients with diabetes and chronic diseases in
Fahad Al-Ahamd Center, healthy child services would be provided in western
Al-Subaheya and Fintas Centers, and the working hours in Abu-Futaira Center
would be extended till midnight, he said
Geriatric care is to be provided in Al-Qurain Family Medical Center, along
with care for conditions affecting the skin and cases involving the ear, nose,
and throat, he added.
These changes and additions would help alleviate the pressure of such large
number of patients who have to wait for long periods at Al-Adan hospital,
which is already at a great distance for many of them to begin with, he said.
The medical services offered in Al-Ahamdi and Mubarak Al-Kabeer
governorates witnessed a remarkable progress, especially in the dentistry
field, head of dentistry services in Al-Ahmadi governorate Dr. Jaber Taqi
said. New dentistry units were opened including well equipped clinics, X-ray
facilities, and sterilization rooms, he said.
The electronic files of patients are currently used in most of dentistry
clinics in the governorate's primary care units, and the patient's medical
history can be looked up easily though entering the civil Id number, he
New primary care units would be opened in many areas in Al-Ahmadi and
Mubarak Al-Kabeer governorates including Al-Ogailah, Ali Sabah Al-Salem,
Al-Ahmadi, and Bnaider where Al-Rashed Center is to offer dentistry services.
