Manama, Feb 27 (BNA): The construction work of the 90-bed Mohammed bin Khalifa Cardiac Hospital in Awali cost BD4.7 million, the Minister for Health Sadiq bin Abdul Kareem Al Shehabi said at the 11th Gulf Heart Association and the fourth Bahrain Association Conference 2014.
The cardiac centre also has specialised critical cardiac care clinics and will have 128 male and female employees.

The minister called the conference an effort to knit together the latest technologies in the cardiac care with Bahrain’s aims of reaching cardiac care for all.

“The Kingdom of Bahrain seeks a front seat among nations capable of holding conferences and organizing such international conferences will go a long way in fulfilling such aspirations,” he said.

The three day conference and exhibition will push the country to witnessing some of the smart methods developed in cardiac care in both Europe and the US and match it with the capacities in the region.

The technological upgrade that the conference brings will benefit Bahrain and place it higher among nations vying to be the hub of health tourism in the region, he added.

He pointed to a huge drop in genetic diseases over the past few years and said the technology played a key role in it.

Dr Amal Al Jowder, Director of Education at the Ministry of Health, told the BNA that the technological upgrades brought in at the conference would help in enhancing cardiac care. Early diagnoses and better follow-up of cases and timely warning to critical patients will surely help better administration, she said.

The advances as witnessed at the conference help bridge the patient-doctor gap in a critical situation and improve chances of reducing mortality, she added.
