New Medical Center in Rabat, a catalyst for improving access to healthcare in Youssoufia neighborhood
The hospital, which required a 63 million dirhams investment, translates the King’s resolve to reinforce the health offer via community-based and quality medical services that meet the needs of citizens, mainly the underprivileged, knowing that geographical proximity is a strong catalyst for health care seeking.
The facility includes an emergency room, a ward 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 around the clock, will ease the pressure on the emergency units of the other hospitals of the capital and will provide periodic consultations to patients requiring regular medical follow-up.
The new center to serve over 160,000 inhabitants brings together 24 general practitioners, emergency physicians, specialists, 27 nurses, and paramedical staff, in addition to managerial staff.
The Mohammed VI Foundation for Solidarity has plans to establish similar medical centers in Temara, Casablanca, and Tangier to improve the population’s access to medicare.
