Hamad Medical Corporation

Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) is the principal public healthcare provider for the State of Qatar. HMC is committed to actively contributing to and enabling the sustainable development of Qatar and its people in alignment with the Qatar National Vision (QNV) 2030.

HMC believes in excellence in healthcare, education and research with each supporting the other to provide the safest, most effective and compassionate care to each and every one of our patients.

To meet the healthcare challenges of Qatar’s growing population, Hamad has transformed into a thriving and integrated Academic Health System which will make significant, positive impacts upon patient care, medical education and medical research.

In addition to three general hospitals (Al Khor Hospital, Al Wakra Hospital and The Cuban Hospital) HMC also manages five specialist hospitals (Hamad General Hospital, Rumailah Hospital, Women’s Hospital, the National Center for Cancer Care and Research and Heart Hospital) which look after patients with the most prevalent conditions, including cancer, heart conditions, rehabilitation, and providing specialist treatment for women and children.

HMC also operates the national Ambulance Service and a home healthcare service.

Hamad continues to upgrade its facilities and services and has also embarked on an ambitious expansion program, targeting the areas of need in our growing community. By the end of 2015 HMC will have opened a further three hospitals – a rehabilitation hospital, women’s hospital and ambulatory and minimally invasive surgery center. All of these hospitals are addressing the needs of the community as well as our own capacity challenges.

Hamad was the first public healthcare system outside the United States to achieve Joint Commission International (JCI) accreditation for all hospitals simultaneously. JCI accreditation is based on quality and safety across all clinical and management functions.

HMC is also the first hospital system in the Middle East to achieve institutional accreditation from the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education - International (ACGME-I), which demonstrates excellence in the way medical graduates are trained through residency, internship and fellowship programs.

The Academic Health System in Qatar – a first within the MENA region – is a dynamic nationwide network integrating research, education and clinical care to focus on improving patient care and deliver innovative healthcare solutions. The eight partners working collaboratively in the AHS include HMC, Sidra, WCMC-Q, Qatar Biomedical Research Institute, College of the North Atlantic-Qatar, the Primary Health Care Corporation, Qatar University and University of Calgary-Qatar.
