Emphasizing the Ministry’s commitment to kidney patient care, Dr. Al-Awadhi noted that providing accessible health services, the latest equipment, and specialized staff are top priorities. This approach aims to improve the health system and enhance the quality of services provided to patients.

Dr. Bassam Al-Hilal, consultant in internal medicine and nephrology and head of the Muhammad Al-Khuzam Dialysis Center, stated that the new center meets high standards of quality, patient safety, and infection prevention. The single-floor facility includes 10 state-of-the-art dialysis machines, capable of serving 60 patients at full capacity, with future expansion plans in place.

Dr. Al-Hilal acknowledged the Ministry’s efforts in equipping the center with advanced technology, which significantly enhances dialysis services and ensures the highest quality of care for patients. He expressed gratitude for the support and guidance from Minister Dr. Ahmed Al-Awadhi and Undersecretary Dr. Abdul Rahman Al-Mutairi, who were instrumental in launching the center’s operations.
