Muscat Private Hospital (MPH) has announced the launch of its cardiac catheter laboratory, which will carry out angiograms to accurately diagnose heart blood vessel diseases, a press release stated.
On the worrying rise in heart diseases in Oman, Dr David Saxton, medical director of the hospital, said there was currently a long list of patients in the sult-anate waiting for angiograms.
“It is important to detect heart disease as early as possible and get a clear idea of the extent of the problem. This is where diagnosis through angiogram helps. We hope that people will take this opportunity to be examined.”
Murat Kucukkaya, the hospital administrator, said, “Our expansion plans remain key to MPH’s long term objective of providing superior quality care to residents of Oman. As the population grows, so does the demand for world-class treatment from highly trained medical prof-essionals, and we are meeting this challenge head on with new equipment and more medical professionals.”
The hospital has also come out with a new campaign that focuses on providing healthcare to the entire family. The campaign, 'Family First,’ encompasses MPH’s philosophy of delivering the best possible care tailored to the needs of the entire family, from pregnancy and paediatrics to diagnostics and surgery.
“Technological developments in the medical industry are updated almost daily and we have to continuously invest in state of the art equipment and services to stay ahead,” the release quoted Dr Saxton as saying.
“Of course, technology would be nothing without the expertise of our medical team. Without their excellent skills and dedication and their patients, the hospital would cease to function. This team of hardworking individuals has cared for, treated and improved the lives of so many patients of MPH. They form the backbone of our hospital.”
MPH is also working towards its Joint Commission International (JCI) accreditation an international symbol of quality and high performance standards in hospitals in the US.
