Mowasalat Medical Commission is equipped with a registration section, general practitioner clinic, ENT clinic, dental clinic, laboratory section, radiology section and Occupational Health clinic, mainly for pre-employment medical checkup, and annual medical checkup.

Mowasalat ensured to equip the Medical Centre with a complete and integrated building with additional facilities like consultation rooms, emergency room, isolation unit, well-equipped pharmacy and first aid units at Karwa city and Al Khor city depot.

“We have launched this initiative to make available the resources and investment made in the Medical centre and its top class facilities to also cater to those who are not employees of Mowasalat in the labour intensive Industrial area,” said Al Hail.

“All the equipment are as per latest technology and international medical standards imported from the best companies in the world with consultation and guidance of Ministry of Health.

“Our ITC project team with Dr. Emad had worked along with commitment and attention to detail to aid the European Software company for delivering this high-tech software that would be used at the Medical Commission which is integrated and accessible by Ministry of Public Health.
