Thousands of dedicated practitioners provide 19 services to 250K patients by 2026
Riyadh: Citizens and residents no longer need to leave the comfort of their homes for medical care. Saudi Health recently expanded its homecare services to include respiration, post-delivery care, dialysis, and palliative care.
Saudi Health reported that 2,742 healthcare workers are currently providing home services by coordination with 246 hospitals and clinics all over the country. Services include nursing, physical therapy, nutrition, respiratory care, mental health, medication administration, dental care, intravenous treatment, bed sores treatment, and follow-up after surgery. The goal is to reach 250,000 beneficiaries by 2026 through home healthcare, providing patients with greater reassurance in their homes among loved ones without having to visit local hospitals.
All these new services come as a part of the Health Transformation Program, which was launched by Saudi Vision 2030 to raise the quality and reach of healthcare services throughout the country.
