The Oman Health Ministry has opened an expansion project at Nizwa Hospital in Al Dakhliya, reported Muscat Daily.

The project is overseen by Royal Court Affairs and aims to improve healthcare services to meet the needs of citizens.

The expansion project aims to enhance patient services, address the increasing demand for specialised services, reduce waiting times, and ensure quality patient safety standards.

This initiative is said to align with the government’s efforts to prioritise Omani citizens and achieve development goals outlined in Oman Vision 2040.

In June, Health Affairs undersecretary Dr. Saeed Harib Al Lamki visited the hospital to check the progress of the expansion, which includes outpatient clinics, training facilities, emergency units, and MRI units among others.

The 305-bed Nizwa Hospital is an Independent Regional Referral Hospital in Oman, under the Ministry of Health.
