Hamad General Hospital has a modern, 603-bed facility that offers trauma, emergency medicine, pediatrics, critical care, specialized surgery, specialized medicine, laboratory medicine and radiology services. The facility is in the process of massive expansion to improve its patient care services. One notable improvement is the complete renovation of the Emergency Department, including the establishment of a new Walk-In Clinic. The ‘see and treat’ model of care for less critical patients has dramatically reduced patient waiting times and enhanced the patient experience.
The Fahad Bin Jassim Kidney Center has been established to offer some of the most advanced treatment standards in the region for patients with acute and chronic kidney ailments.

Significant progress has been made in the Robotics Surgery Program, and a wide range of surgical procedures are now being performed using this technology.
