The Mohammed VI Foundation for Solidarity will establish a medical center in Temara, Casablanca, and Tangier.
Rabat – King Mohammed VI inaugurated a medical center in the Youssoufia neighborhood in Rabat on Saturday.
The hospital includes an ER ward for medical emergencies, a section for specialized consultations (general medicine, endocrinology, nephrology, cardiology, ophthalmology, pediatrics, and gynecology), an orthopedic rehabilitation unit, a mother-child health center, a medical imaging unit, a medical analysis laboratory, a sterilization unit, and a medical laboratory, in addition to a pharmacy and a morgue.
The new health facility, which will be open 24 hours a day, will ease the pressure on the emergency units at existing hospitals and also provide periodic and regular medical follow-up to people whose health condition requires specialized consultations.
The new center brings together 24 general practitioners, emergency physicians, specialist doctors, 27 nurses, and paramedical staff, as well as four administrators, to assist in serving the medical needs of the region’s population of over 160,000 inhabitants.
The construction of the facility began in March of 2017, under the instruction of the King; the Mohammed V Foundation for Solidarity provided MAD 63 million in funding to build it.
The Mohammed VI Foundation for Solidarity has plans to establish medical centers in Temara, Casablanca, and Tangier in the future.
