AMMAN — Royal Court Secretary General Yousef Issawi and Health Minister Mahmoud Sheyyab on Wednesday inaugurated the Bader Comprehensive Healthcare Centre and the Rawda Primary Healthcare Centre, which were established under Royal initiatives in the capital.

The two centres, within the Royal initiatives, aim at improving health services presented to citizens, and were announced during a meeting of His Majesty King Abdullah with Amman dignitaries recently, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

The Bader centre includes emergency and maternity departments and specialised general medicine clinics, in addition to a main laboratory, pharmacy and an X-ray room.

The centre will contribute to developing the level of health service in the Bader area and alleviating the pressure on the former preliminary health centre that used to receive large numbers of patients in the area, whose population is estimated at 16,000 residents. 

As for the Rawda centre, it is comprised of two floors and includes modern medical equipment and departments that cover the needs of Rawda area in Naur District. 

Issawi told Petra that the opening of the two health centres is in line with the Royal vision to providing the best health services to citizens, noting that Royal initiatives contributed to establishing and expanding 37 health centres across the Kingdom, and providing hospitals with necessary medical devices.

Sheyyab said that these initiatives will play a key role in developing health services in line with the ministry plan to improve public hospitals and health centres, adding that such Royal contributions helped in meeting urgent needs the ministry sought to achieve.  

 

Director of Rawda Healthcare Centre Mohammad Khdeir said that the facility will present services to some 20,000 residents of Rawda and neighbouring areas, noting that the centre receives large numbers of patients with an average of 100 per day.
