By combining these systems with connected care, the hospital has brought out a beautiful fusion that can only work in the best interest of the patients.
Fakeeh University Hospital’s Connected Care model ensures a seamless delivery of health services, through a perfect combination of hospital, virtual and home visits.

Connected Care is part of the hospital’s patient first approach. By adopting this model of delivery, the hospital is able to provide healthcare that is both, complementing and continuous.
Home care as an extension
To extend the patient care further, Fakeeh University Hospital has put in place a robust Home Care model.
