Muaither Health Center, under the Primary Health Care Corporation (PHCC), recently extended its urgent care service
to 24 hours of operation. The health center, one of the 27 across the country and 10 in the region, will provide care for patients 24/7 for ‘non-threatening’ medical needs such as minor burns, sprains, severe headache or earache, dehydration and dizziness, PHCC has said in a statement. The urgent care center will be led by a team of specialist doctors and nurses, including pediatricians, supported by pharmacy and X-ray services.
The health center currently offers a range of services, including family medicine services such as non-communicable disease, antenatal and postnatal care, well baby and periodic immunization, well women services and school health. Urgent care is a comprehensive service, delivered by a specialized team designed to meet Qatar’s community urgent medical needs in an easy, accessible, quick and efficient manner.
The urgent care service will help connect more people in the neighboring areas to the health center, such as Al Rayyan, Abu Nakhla, Mesaimeer and Al Wajbah, the statement adds. PHCC aims to provide urgent care services at 10 health centers by the end of 2020, the statement notes.
The corporation also provides 24-hour urgent care service at the Rawdat Al Khail, Al Gharafa, Al Kaaban, Al Sheehaniyah and Al Shamal health centers as well as Abu Baker Al Siddiq Health Center. Other 24- hour urgent care health centers are expected to go live in the next 12 months.
