A total of 100 outpatient clinics, 300 beds, a state-of-the-art Intensive Care Unit (ICU), the largest dialysis unit centre in Makkah with 30 rooms, and cutting-edge surgery rooms are all features of the new Saudi German Hospital in Makkah. Two of the important procedures that the emergency room in the hospital offers are STEMI pathway and stroke pathway. Furthermore, 25 emergency beds are available, making it one of the largest and well equipped ERs in the area. Additionally, the integrated Command Centre in the hospital ensures optimal organisation of resources and enhances the efficiency of response activities in cases of emergency or disaster.
