Dr. Al-Hammouri reaffirmed the readiness of the private hospitals sector in supporting the Ministry of Health in its efforts to deal with the repercussions of the COVID19 and support the ministry’s Healthcare Providers working in government hospitals, and he confirmed the readiness of private hospitals to send ICU, Anesthesia doctors and other medical specialties to help the ministry in treating COVID19 patients, as all components of the healthcare sector in Jordan must stand united in this difficult circumstance that Jordan is going through.
He said that private hospitals have increased their capacity in the allocated isolation departments designated for treating COVID19 patients, in response to the remarkable increase of COVID19 cases as to also reduce the pressure on the public healthcare sector.
Dr. Al Hammouri stressed the need for all healthcare sectors, including private hospitals, to assure the safety of work procedures, also to ensure the safety of the necessary equipment which in turn ensures the wellbeing of patients.
He added the Jordanian healthcare sector is well-known in the region and the world, and it will remain a source of pride for all Jordanians, and he hoped that we will be able to overcome this difficult ordeal; hand in hand to provide the best levels of healthcare for patients who need it most.
