Drawing attention to the role of the project in supporting the hospital's work, which includes treating COVID-19 patients, Health Minister Saad Jaber expressed appreciation for the Zayed Sustainability Prize and its partners in the initiative for providing the hospital with environmentally friendly solutions.
