(MENAFN - Arab News) The Ministry of Health is planning to build 100 new hospitals and health centers in the next 4 to 5 years, according to Mourad El-Mourad, senior adviser at the General Directorate for Control of Genetic and Chronic Services.
"The ministry wants to build a better future for its citizens. With 300 hospitals and 2,000 primary health centers already under its management, the ministry ensures the best health care for the people," El-Mourad said on Tuesday.
He was speaking at the opening of the 3rd Patient Relations Symposium at the InterContinental Hotel in Riyadh.
El-Mourad, the chairperson of the symposium, said the ministry aims to focus on the patient and their experience. "We are implementing more health IT systems and initiatives within our network. This offers international medical firms the opportunity to invest in Saudi Arabia," he said.
El-Mourad said the Health Ministry envisions developing a patient-centric system that will put the patient first. "To achieve this, the Kingdom needs to rely on innovative medical solutions and the latest technological developments, for which they are pursuing new partnerships with international solution providers," he said.

El-Mourad said that the initiative has been specifically designed to facilitate learning, networking and creating a better understanding of the latest health care challenges faced by the Kingdom.
He said the Kingdom is engaged in reforms which will continue to face new challenges and growing expectations of the population.
Experts who led the discussions on major health care obstacles and opportunities in the Kingdom included Professor Khaled bin Saeed, director of the health care committee of the Shoura Council; Abdulaziz bin Zarah, CEO of Sultan bin Abdulaziz Humanitarian City; and Ashraf Ismail, managing director of the Joint Commission International.
The symposium was organized by French business facilitation group Naseba.
