SAUDI ARABIA – Middle East Healthcare Company (MEAHCO), publicly known as Saudi German Health (SGH), has increased its patient care capacity with the opening of a new state-of-the-art facility in Makkah, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia (KSA).
His Royal Highness Prince Badr Bin Sultan Bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, Deputy Governor of Makkah, presided over the official opening of Saudi German Health’s new hospital in Makkah.
Founded by the Batterjee family, Saudi German Health is one of the leading healthcare providers across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA).
The group has further consolidated its presence in Saudi Arabia through establishing a comprehensive network of full-fledged hospitals in Jeddah, Asser, Riyadh, Madinah, Hail, Dammam, and now Makkah.
In a press release, SGH said: “The integrated multi-specialty medical facility was developed and planned to satisfy patients with the highest international standards.”
The 300-bed facility is outfitted with the latest medical technologies and trained medical personnel to provide locals and visitors from around the world including millions of Hajj and Umrah pilgrims, with the highest quality of medical care.
Additionally, the hospital has notably distinctive external and interior architecture specifically designed to foster a comforting atmosphere for both patients and hospital staff.
The new Saudi German Hospital in Makkah is well-equipped with advanced technology and specialists to offer the best possible in-patient and out-patient hospital services.
It features a total of 100 outpatient clinics, an ultramodern Intensive Care Unit (ICU), the largest dialysis unit centre in Makkah with 30 rooms, cutting-edge surgery rooms, and an emergency room.
“Two of the important procedures that the emergency room in the hospital offers are STEMI pathway and stroke pathway. Furthermore, 25 emergency beds are available, making it one of the largest and well-equipped ERs in the area,” outlined SGH.
At the same time, the hospital houses an integrated Command Centre to ensure optimal organisation of resources and enhance the efficiency of timely response activities in cases of emergency or disaster.
The Saudi German Hospital in Makkah is part of Batterjee Medical City, which is home to the largest private medical college in the region and a staff housing project in Makkah Al-Mukarramah.
The hospital launch aligns with SGH’s strategy to establish itself as one of the largest private healthcare providers in the region and a significant contributor to the growth and advancement of the medical industry in Saudi Arabia.
Moreover, the Saudi medical care giant continues to strive to increase its presence both inside and outside Saudi Arabia.
In his address, Makarem Sobhi Batterjee, President and Vice Chairman of Saudi German Health, said: “We are pleased to announce the opening of the Saudi German Hospital in Makkah, which reflects our dedication to Vision 2030 and increases access to high-quality healthcare for KSA citizens.”
He underscored that the inauguration of the new facility will enhance access to world-class care to communities in need in line with SGH’s commitment to enhance the health of individuals across Saudi Arabia and the region.
“The new hospital is an important step in advancing the local healthcare industry and improving patient care and services,” stated Batterjee.
