Following the successful opening of its main hospital nearly six months ago, Sidra Medicine, a member of Qatar Foundation, is preparing to mark the next major milestone in its development as Qatar’s leading provider of pediatric care with the opening of its Children’s Emergency Department (CED) in early July.

The new CED will add capacity to Qatar’s existing healthcare facilities – such as the Pediatric Emergency Centers (PECs), which will remain open – and complement those services already available at Sidra Medicine. Sidra Medicine’s CED will provide care for serious emergencies only, which will be free of charge. Those children who require care for minor health issues, including upper respiratory conditions like sore throats and coughs, rashes or low-grade fever, should continue to seek treatment with their regular healthcare provider as they normally would. Should patients choose to come to Sidra Medicine for treatment of cases that are considered non-emergency, its Children’s Urgent Care Clinic will treat patients in order of medical priority and require a charge of QAR 550 for consultation (supplementary charges may apply).
