Fakeeh University Hospital, branded as the regions 1st smart hospital, has ensured that all lifesaving critical facilities in the hospital are placed close to each other, which saves precious seconds in a patient’s treatment journey
A hospital is a place where one needs to feel that one is in safe hands, in a secured environment, and with quick moving interventions. Afterall, it’s a matter of life and death in most cases.
A hospital should essentially amalgamate mortality statistics and grasp the importance of regularly assessing and analyzing that data. The data should then assist in basing critical decisions for planning the hospital, its clinical protocols and improving outcomes.
Periodically reviewing such data helps in accurate preparedness and better results for the patients.
At Fakeeh University Hospital, the team has a strong grasp on this concept.
As a result, the hospital has been meticulously planned to have all lifesaving facilities close to each other for instance, Radiology – MRI, CT, Sonography and Operation Theatre are all located on the same floor and close to each other making the movability of the patient easier and less time taking. This strategic step saves time, especially in emergency cases. It has helped innumerable patients and families in receiving timely care.
Hospitals have, over the last many decades, lost valuable time in moving patients from one place to the other. In case of emergencies, every second counts. At our hospital, we make sure to save these treasured seconds.

All of these medical conditions require fast-acting and fast-moving attention and care at a hospital. This is something that Fakeeh University Hospital has ensured at its facility.

Hospitals have, over the last many decades, lost valuable time in moving patients from one place to the other. In case of emergencies, every second counts. At our hospital, we make sure to save these treasured seconds,” says Dr. Shahinaz Ahmed Gouda, Senior Emergency Specialist, Fakeeh University Hospital.
