Royal Bahrain Hospital set for launch
Manama, December 22, 2010
The Royal Bahrain Hospital (RBH), a new hospital promoted by Bahraini investors in partnership with Kerala Institute of Medical Sciences (KIMS), conducted a training programme, in preparation for the hospital's launch.
The nine-day extensive training programme concluded recently for the first batch of hospital staff. 23 Bahrainis as well as staff representing three other nationalities underwent training.
The hospital will open in the first week of January 2011.
“We strongly believe that training helps in understanding and carrying out organisational policies more effectively,” said Dr Ashish Banerji, chief operating officer.
“It also helps in developing leadership skills, motivation, loyalty, better attitudes, and other aspects that we intend RBH employees to display.”
The group of trainers included Dr Banerji; Dr Abdul Gaffar, a renowned orthopedicis consultant in Bahrain; Arun Govind, a seasoned administrator & project manager; Deepinder Singh, patient services coordinator; and as a number of other expert trainers.
The hospital is using one of the best Hospital Information Systems in the world, developed by Kameda Infologics.
The hospital plans to hire 50 Bahrainis in its first phase.
RBH is the sixth and latest health care institution launched by the KIMS Group in the GCC. The hospital, with an investment of a planned investment of BD6 million, will feature a complete range of state-of-the-art medical equipment.
The 60-bed hospital will have a professional team of doctors, nurses, paramedics and administrators and provide affordable care to patients, said a statement. -TradeArabia News Service
