Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) has concluded its activities at Sealine Medical Clinic as the camping season in the area comes to a close.

Every year during camping season, HMC opens a medical clinic to provide medical services to all campers in Sealine and Khor Al-Udeid areas. The clinic started operations for the seventh consecutive year at the beginning of the camping season last November. Mr. Ali Al-Khater, Chief Communications Officer at HMC and Sealine Medical Center’s Project Manager expressed his thanks to all clinic staff  including medical and nursing staff, Ambulance Service staff and clinic administrators for ensuring the smooth running of the clinic. He also thanked the Ministry of Municipality and Environment for its constant and continued support of the medical clinic throughout its operations.

During this time, the clinic received a total of 713 patients – both adults and children - which included 451 Qataris and 262 expatriates. Twenty seven patients were transferred to the Emergency Department at Hamad General Hospital by ambulance. The clinic attended to 573 people suffering from a range of ailments such as fevers, abdominal pain, diarrhea, coughs and colds while an additional 135 people were treated for wounds, burns, colds, stomach problems and asthma. Five accident and bone fracture patients were also treated. Despite the closing of the clinic, the Ambulance Service’s critical care paramedic team will continue to operate at the Sealine from Thursday to Saturday at the existing Medical Clinic site.
