The Health Insurance Hospitals Company (DHAMAN) affirmed the company’s readiness to support the efforts of the Ministry of Health to solve the overcrowding crisis experienced in the expatriate medical test centers, reports Al-Rai daily.
They stressed that the Dhaman company has more than 122 medical staff members including doctors and nurses, and approximately 453 technical and administrative personnel to support the operations of the company and the state’s health sector. The company is studying the regulatory mechanism for providing health services, with the concerned authorities.
Regarding the controversy surrounding the overcrowding crisis in expatriate medical test centers as a result of the increase in requests for medical test appointments in the centers affiliated with the Ministry of Health in the current period, sources said the concerned authorities in the ministry could benefit from the services and capabilities of the centers of Dhaman, which is the entity that will provide integrated health insurance services to expatriates in the next phase.
They explained that Dhaman previously presented several tangible initiatives to support the efforts of the Ministry of Health and the health sector in general, in the context of its expected role in enhancing the health security in the State of Kuwait with the Ministry of Health.
The company owns modern health centers in Hawally, Farwaniya and Dajeej areas. These centers are characterized with modern devices and equipment, large capacity, and the availability of large waiting areas that can accommodate about 700 people per day in order to provide health services to them according to the best quality standards required.
In the context, those concerned with health affairs said they believe the use of Dhaman Company’s centers will greatly reduce pressure faced in the expatriate medical test centers and improve the quality of the service provided, in consideration of the daily arrival of hundreds of expatriates to the medical test centers affiliated with the Ministry of Health, and the long period that laboratories need for the results to be analyzed.
