The Ministry of Health (MOH) launched yesterday Tuesday at Khoula Hospital the Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) Unit under the auspices of Mohammed Saif Al Hosni, MOH Undersecretary for Health Affairs, with the presence of Abdul-Amir Al Ajmi, PDO External Affairs & Value Creation Director.
The project was generously supplied by the Petroleum Development Oman (PDO) Company and started to function nearly 6 months ago. The unit employs the most sophisticated technology; the 1.5 Tesla Machine, which is considered state-of-the-art in medical imaging.
Dr. Ali Muhad Al Ma’shani, the hospital’s director general affirmed the shared purpose of the cooperation and partnership between the government and private sectors to promote all aspects of services in the Sultanates.
Abdul-Amir Al Ajmi, External Affairs & Value Creation Director at PDO emphasized that the contribution of the company comes within the company’s social investment programme and its efforts to mitigate the pains of patients in addition to promoting the health services in the country in all therapeutic, preventive, diagnostic, and rehabilitation level.
It is worth noted that introducing such service to the hospital would allow for earlier diagnosis and treatment, subsequently reducing the waiting list.
