The center is a medical-surgical facility specializing in treating patients with heart disease.
A budget of MAD 324 million was allocated for the establishment of this center, which was built in an area of 3,605 square meters.
The new facility is intended to complement the national healthcare services and reinforce the status of the Mohammed V Military Instruction Hospital as a platform for staff training and cutting-edge medical research.
The center has four departments: a technical ward (operating rooms, intensive care units, MRI and sterilization rooms), a ward for interventional cardiology (intensive care rooms, emergency rooms, units for rhythmlogy and cardiac catheterization, a laboratory for invasive explorations, a biology laboratory, a dentist’s office), a non-invasive cardiology department (clinical cardiology, non-invasive explorations, cardiac rehabilitation) and cardiovascular surgery ward (children and adults).
The center’s design and organization are said to be in line with international standards. It has an accommodation capacity of 120 beds and boasts high-tech equipment, which allows it to provide top-quality medical care and training, said Maghreb Arab Press (MAP).
