The opening of Prince Hussein Hospital in Ain Al-Basha in early February

The director of Prince Hussein Hospital, Dr. Muhammad Al-Abed, revealed that Prince Hussein
Hospital is expected to open on the first of next month
Al-Abed told Al-Rai that the maintenance work is nearing completion after continuous efforts and direct supervision by the Minister of Health, Dr. Firas Al-Hawari, and the Secretary-General of the Ministry, Elham Khreisat, who last week supervised the latest details in creating new parts and departments and
maintaining the hospital from the ground up
He added that the hospital will be a model health facility to serve approximately 300,000 citizens, including the establishment of an emergency department, which will accommodate 35 beds instead of
what was previously only 13 beds. This is a qualitative medical transformation and achievement
He continued: "Extensive maintenance was carried out on the hospital from the ground up, removing old finishes, tiles and paint, making radical changes worthy of serving the citizens of the district, making a change to the fire emergency system, and improving and equipping the dialysis department, as the number of beds in the hospital will become 120 beds, with the exception of beds in other departments,
" including the kidney department
He stated that "the most suffering was in the emergency department, where this department was separated and equipped with new equipment and a design that matches the best private hospitals, where the last extensive maintenance finishes are currently being carried out, which took time, but
" modernization and renewal is for the benefit of the patients and the people of the district

He explained that departments for surgery, gynecology, children, internal medicine, and other departments have been created, in addition to the ophthalmology, urology, and ear and throat departments, and plans to establish a heart clinic, pediatric surgery, and diabetic foot surgery, as the
hospital is expected to become a comprehensive hospital
Al-Abed called on patients and citizens to preserve this new medical edifice and that the Ministry
spared no effort in renovating, maintaining and developing this hospital
He said that the file of maintenance and expansion of Prince Hussein Hospital in the Ain Al-Basha District is one of the most important demands of the people of the district and one of the most prominent files that receives continuous attention and follow-up from residents who are anticipating its
opening as soon as possible
He pointed out that maintenance had been carried out in many departments of the hospital, which was established in 2010 with an area of 1,200 square metres, at a cost of 18 million dinars, and was opened
under royal patronage
He explained that in 2020, cracks, dampness, and wear and tear began to appear in the infrastructure, but the Corona pandemic and the accompanying procedures resulted in maintenance starting in 2022, as the opening of the hospital will work to secure health service for the citizens of the district after they
were suffering greatly in going to distant hospitals
