The first anniversary of the King Hamad American Mission Hospital (KHAMH) in A’Ali was celebrated on Thursday at the hospital and also in its other locations in Bahrain.

“When the new A’Ali hospital opened last year, on January 26, it became the fifth and largest of the American Mission Hospital’s five facilities,” said Dr. George Cheriyan, the Corporate CEO.

“The Crown Prince and the Prime Minister, HRH Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, inaugurated it on the same day, which marked the completion of 120 years of the hospital’s service to the country," said Ms. Julia Tovey, the Group CEO, during the celebrations.

“Though it has been barely 10 months since we started operations at this new facility, we have been attracting patients from even outside the country,” she said.

“The A’Ali Hospital is a tertiary care hospital. So, with expert physicians and cutting-edge medical technology, we cater to a wide range of medical and surgical needs of our patients,” said Dr. Deepak Abraham, the hospital’s Chief of Medical Staff and KHAMH Director.

“With modular and hybrid operating rooms, labour rooms, ICUs, dialysis units, an IVF Centre, hyperbaric chambers, ESWL facilities, an endoscopy suite, and imaging technology such as 128-Slice CT Scanning and 1.5 Tesla MRI, we have the capability to meet all kinds of patients’ needs,” said Peter Kennedy, the Chief Operating Officer of KHAMH.

“From serious surgical procedures to simple deliveries of babies, the hospital is equipped to serve the community of Bahrain with the very best service possible,” he added.

“Established in 1903 as the first hospital, not only in Bahrain but also in the entire Arabian Gulf region, this not-for-profit hospital has saved countless lives and continues to serve the community for over 120 years,” said Dr. Cheriyan.
