Bahraini authorities said work on the multiple sclerosis centre project, an offshoot of Muharraq Medical Complex, was progressing as per schedule.
The facility represents the first specialised and independent medical centre for multi-sclerosis patients in the Arabian Gulf region, reported BNA.
On completion, it will have outpatient clinics for most of the specialties that multiple sclerosis patients need, such as magnetic resonance diagnostics, physiotherapy, manual exercise therapy, private and public treatment rooms, a laboratory and pharmacy.
The facility will also boast a scientific research center, a lecture hall, medical warehouses, a service building, administrative offices and parking lots, said Government Hospitals CEO Dr Ahmed Mohammed Al Ansari after an inspection tour of the project site.
He was accompanied by Works, Municipalities Affairs and Urban Planning Ministry Assistant Undersecretary for Construction and Maintenance Projects Shaikh Misha’al bin Mohammed Al Khalifa and other officials.
Lauding His Majesty the King for his care on enhancing services, Dr Al Ansari said the health sectors featured in the government’s top priorities.
Operations and Services director Dr Noor Riadh Dhaiif, Salmaniya Medical Complex (SMC) Neuroscience Department Chief Dr. Fatima Abdulla Mohammed, and other consultant doctors and officials in charge of the projects were also present.
