Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) has announced it will open a clinic in the Sealine area of Qatar next month, ahead of the start of this year’s camping season. The Sealine Medical Center, which is set to open on 2 November, will operate every weekend during the camping season, opening each Thursday at 3pm and remaining open until Saturday at 5pm.

Mr. Ali Abdullah Al Khater, Chief Communications Officer at HMC and Chair of the Healthcare Communications Committee, said this is the eighth consecutive year that HMC has operated the clinic. He added that the clinic is located close to the seashore and popular camping areas to allow for easier access should healthcare services be required by residents or visitors. “The annual opening of the clinic in the Sealine area is in line with HMC’s commitment to providing the safest, most effective, and most compassionate care to all of Qatar’s residents and visitors,” said Mr. Al Khater.

Mr. Al Khater, who is also the Project Manager for the Sealine Medical Center, said the clinic is staffed by a doctor and nurse and equipped to receive patients with minor health concerns, as well as emergency cases. The clinic is supported by HMC’s Ambulance Service, providing campers with round the clock access to a team of paramedics and well-equipped ambulance vehicles. The clinic also has a helicopter landing area to transfer patients from the beach to the clinic, and to transfer acute cases to hospital.
