Department at PHCC has told local Arabic daily 'Arrayah'. The new centres are coming up at Al Khor, Umm Al Saneem, Al Mashaf and Al Sadd, she explained. By 2023, PHCC would have a total of 31 centres.
According to the Healthcare Facilities Master Plan (QHFMP), issued by the Ministry of Public Health, four other new health centers are set to be constructed after 2025, Khalil said.
These comprise two centres replacing those at Umm Ghuwailina and Madinat Khalifa and two new centres at Bani Hajar and Nuaija.

Once the PHCC receives the completed buildings from the Public Works Authority (Ashghal), it takes two to three months in addition to a week of experimental and testing operations before the official opening to ensure that everything will work as planned.

Recently the expansion and upgrading of both Al Rayyan and Al Kaaban health centres were accomplished, he added.
