HMC Opens New Care Facility for Home-bound Workers

Doha, Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) has officially opened Bayt Aman, in efforts to augment the welfare measures for expatriate labourers.

The care facility is for expatriate labourers in the final stages of recovery following illness and waiting to return to their home country.

Bayt Aman can accommodate up to 12 guests at a time and is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week by a charge nurse and patient care attendants.

Guests being cared for at Bayt Aman no longer need the clinical supervision, provided at HMC’s rehabilitation and long-term care units.

Mahmoud al-Raisi, Chief of Continuing Care at HMC explained that Bayt Aman provides a safe and restorative environment for expatriate workers who have completed medical treatment and are waiting to return home.

“The accommodation will help our guests who have completed their treatment at HMC to fully recuperate and re-adjust to their normal routines so they are better able to return to living their everyday lives.” The opening of Bayt Aman follows the recent expansion of facilities across HMC, including commencing care services at two new hospitals, the Communicable Disease Center and the Qatar Rehabilitation Institute.
