2015 - The new Al-Bashir Hospital Emergency Department is designed to solve many long-term problems that have been affecting the overall performance of the hospital.
Receiving over 580,000 patients annually, the old Al-Bashir emergency building had a limited capacity of 55 beds only, weak connectivity between the building and the main hospital, and insufficient parking spaces and road access causing traffic congestion.
DAR AL OMRAN treated all these problems by reducing the distance between the Emergency Department and the main hospital by 50%, creating various entrances for walk-in patients and services - minimizing congestion, and introducing new parking spaces and a helipad to receive patients from Helicopters
