Amwaj Becomes Even More Appealing

On January 22nd, a long harbored wish became reality for inhabitants of Amwaj Island: the popular man-made island got its own hospital:

The King’s Personal Representative, Shaikh Abdullah bin Hamad Al Khalifa, inaugurated the non-profit American Mission Hospital (AMH) Medical and Wellness Center in Amwaj Islands. The inauguration ceremony was attended by Minister of Health Sadiq Al-Shihabi, government’s senior officials, diplomats and AMH staff.
HM the King’s Representative expressed delight in opening the AMH Medical and Wellness Center in Amwaj Islands which is part of the strategy followed to support hospitals to raise the level of medical service and disseminating health awareness.
AMH chief medical officer and chief executive Dr George Cheriyan said the opening of the Amwaj Islands facility was a major landmark in the hospital’s 110-year history:

“Providing localised care for people close to where they live is the future of healthcare both in Bahrain and the rest of the world,” he explained.

To a lot of not only Amwaj’s, but Muharraq’s residents in general, this means an extra plus of living in this particular community. Being able to access quality healthcare near to where one lives, signals a big improvement for residents, as they don’t have to travel far and it is more convenient.

“This center is going to greatly improve the availability of healthcare for the relatively new community living in Amwaj”.

And what’s more; the medical center aims to be more than just a medical center; it was developed to create a ‘feel good’ atmosphere, which resulted in the fact the hospital feels much more like a wellness center than a standard medical center. Among others, the location contributes to this, since the center is located by the tranquil Amwaj waterfront which has a natural relaxing ambience.

The 900-square metre centre, located on the second floor of the Light House Office Complex, employs 25 staff including doctors, physiotherapists and pharmacists. It is also equipped with emergency rooms and consultation rooms, as well as a wellness center and physiotherapy center.

Another AMH medical centre, which will include a dental clinic, is due to open in Al Shabab Avenue (American Alley), in Juffair, later this year. The two new centres will treat 3,500 patients every month, in addition to those visiting the main AMH complex in Manama and medical center in Saar.
Designs are currently being discussed and it is hoped to be built in the next three years. The new Amwaj clinic will be open from 8am until 8pm, seven days a week.
