New surgery building at HGH ready: Ashghal

The Public Works Authority (Ashghal) has completed the construction of the building project housing additional operation rooms at the Hamad General Hospital (HGH).

Ashghal has also completed the examination, inspection and operation procedures of the technical and electromechanical systems at the building, which will soon be handed over to the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH).

The project is one of Qatar’s most important ones which will reflect positively on the efficiency of the healthcare sector.

In addition to construction works, the works implemented by Ashghal include complete equipping of the new operation rooms. The new surgery building includes 20 operating rooms, 17 of which are general and the rest for carrying out surgery with advanced diagnostic devices.

This is in addition to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) for accidents, recovery unit (post-anaesthesia care), ICUs for surgery, surgery preparation units and associated services, as well as a multi-storey parking tower to accommodate around 800 vehicles. The surgery building also includes a services building.

In addition, two helicopter landing pads connect the surgery building with operating rooms and the Intensive Care Unit to transfer emergency cases.
