Two Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) building projects have been recognized for excellence in their design at prestigious regional awards ceremonies.

The Positron Emission Tomography (PET CT) Center at HMC’s National Center for Cancer Care and Research was awarded “Best Designed Hospital Facility in the Middle East” at the Hospital Build and Infrastructure Middle East Exhibition and Congress in Dubai last week.

The award was accepted by Mr. Hamad Al Khalifa Group Chief of Facilities and Workforce Development who headed a delegation of four engineers from HMC’s Healthcare Facilities Development Department, Health Facilities Development – Naeem Younis, Bernadette Farrell, Amro Metwalli, and Yahya Taher – at the event.

In a further recognition of Hamad’s commitment to developing high quality facilities, HMC also won an award at the Cityscape Qatar 2013 Exhibition held in Doha in May. The Community and Culture Project Award was given to HMC’s Skilled Nursing Facility. This is the second year in a row HMC took home this award.

Mr. Al Khalifa said that HMC’s Healthcare Facilities Development Department strives to maintain the highest international standards in the Corporation’s facilities.

“These two prestigious awards are recognition of our dedication to continually improving and developing our facilities,” he said. “Being recognized by our peers in the construction and engineering industries is a great honor. Creating a caring and restorative environment enables us to provide the highest levels of safe, effective and compassionate care to our patients.”
