Local efforts reduced the number of transfers to major cities

Riyadh: King Abdulaziz Specialist Hospital in Taif (west Saudi Arabia) successfully accomplished 998 cardiac catheterizations and 10 open-heart surgeries during the first half of this year.

Taif Health explained that the heart center at the hospital achieved this through a local team of dedicated surgeons aided with the latest medical equipment to provide integrated services for heart patients, which contributed to the decline in the number of patients who seek treatment in other Saudi cities.

The Center provided its services in the same period for more than 8,000 patients in general and subspecialties such as pediatric cardiac surgery and ultrasound clinics.
