DHAMAN opens 5th Primary Healthcare Center in Kuwait


KUWAIT: The new health center in Fahaheel is the largest in its network and contains 30 family medicine clinics, 12 dental clinics, 5 pediatric clinics, 3 treatment rooms, 3 observation rooms, 4 x-ray rooms, a laboratory and a pharmacy. Health Assurance Hospitals Company (DHAMAN) has inaugurated its fifth Primary Healthcare Center (PHC) in the Fahaheel area in the Ahmadi Governorate.

This inauguration represents a significant new step towards achieving the company’s strategy to serve the high-density clusters of the target segment and provide them with integrated healthcare services. On this occasion, DHAMAN Chairman, Mutlaq Mubarak Al-Sanea, said, “Today we are inaugurating DHAMAN’s fifth primary healthcare center and the largest in the country in terms of the number of clinics operating to meet the needs of healthcare services.

These centers are an essential element in our plan to establish an integrated health network, which includes hospitals with a bed capacity of not less than 600 beds and a number of primary healthcare centers distributed in all governorates to serve the national strategy for healthcare in Kuwait, which aims to raise the level of health services while also reducing the financial and administrative burdens on Kuwaiti government entities”.

He added, “We are currently working on finalizing the requirements for the opening of two hospitals in the Jahra and Ahmadi governorates at the beginning of the first quarter of next year, which will be operated in cooperation with the Spanish company Ribera Salud, which is an expert in providing healthcare for more than 30 years in Spain and a number of other countries.”

Furthermore, Al-Sanea stressed that “DHAMAN is the largest project of the development plan in Kuwait in terms of capital amounting to KD 230 million, and the first initiative to support the medical sector in Kuwait. This is considered one of the largest sectors that drains the state budget, as DHAMAN seeks to improve the country’s healthcare indicators and benchmarks, achieving a qualitative leap for the health sector, reducing financial and administrative burdens on government entities, in addition to supporting economic diversification through healthcare, by providing healthcare services to expatriates working in the private sector (Article 18) and their families”.

For his part, DHAMAN CEO, Thamer Arab, said: “The opening of the new center represents a new success towards completing DHAMAN health network, which will undoubtedly be followed by other steps until we reach our ultimate goal of achieving the company’s vision and strategy in building and managing a comprehensive and integrated health network that includes all medical activities and services, including assurance, treatment, follow-up and awareness, adding that DHAMAN seeks to raise healthcare indicators through preventive health, by adopting the integrated health maintenance organization (HMO) model”.

Arab added that citizens and residents in the Ahmadi Governorate, specifically the Fahaheel area, can now quickly obtain integrated and high-quality healthcare services, including family medicine, dental and pediatrics. DHAMAN is currently operating four primary healthcare centers in the areas of Hawally, Farwaniya, Jahra and Dhajeej, which are currently operating as private centers that receive all segments that need healthcare services in preparation for the opening of the DHAMAN network and receive the main segment that will benefit from its services.

Members of DHAMAN’s Board of Directors and Executive Management along with dignitaries from the Ministry of Health (MOH) and Ahmadi Governorate. DHAMAN Fahaheel Center is considered the largest DHAMAN primary healthcare center and is distinguished by its expansion over an area of 4,660 square meters.
