Sidra Medical and Research Center is pleased to announce the phased opening of its Outpatient Clinic on 1 of May 2016. With a strong patient and family-centered focus, the Sidra Outpatient Clinic will be a high-tech facility that will enhance patient care, promote efficiency and ensure resident safety.
Led by a team of specialized doctors, nurses and allied health professionals, services at the Sidra Outpatient Clinic will start with the launch of three clinics – Dermatology, Pediatric General Surgery Consultation, and Obstetrics.
The Sidra Outpatient Clinic will adopt the latest technologies to enhance the patient experience. For example, pediatric patients will have their height, temperature, and weight read by devices which will send the information directly to digital patient files - ensuring that patient information is streamlined and also allowing nurses to spend more time on patient care.
Patients will also benefit from the rapid review and reporting of digital images from X-rays, ultrasound scans, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans and computerized tomography (CT) scans with results received all within minutes. A 3D printer will also provide 3D models of a patient’s organs such as the heart or the brain to help with treatment planning.
As part of the phased opening of services at the Sidra Outpatient Clinic, plans have been set in place to offer more Pediatric services over the course of 2016. This will eventually include Neonatology Consultation, Developmental Pediatrics, Child and Adolescent Mental Health, Ear Nose and Throat (ENT), and Pre-Operative Anesthetic assessment and preparation.
