Deputy Executive Director Welcome Message
I am honored to introduce to you Family Medicine and Primary Health Care Department – Central Region ( FM & PHC ) and share our accomplishments over the last 27 years as we continuously strive to provide a high standard of quality care to our patients and community.
Our story in the Ministry of National Guard Health Affairs (MNGHA) began in 1994 when the Directorate of PHC SANG-HA kingdom-wide was established. It was headed by an Executive Director and four Associate Executive Directors and established the following:
Polyclinics - PHC Centers
FM Department from adult male medicine to proper FM. All patients, regardless of age, gender, complaints are seen by a qualified Family Physician.
Establishment of Arab Board then Saudi Board FM Program.
A process of attracting highly qualified Family Physicians.
In 1997, re-engineering of the organization resulted in having the Central Region Department of FM & PHC, headed by Deputy Executive Medical Director and two Corporate Directors and Chairman and Deputy Chairman of Family and Community Medicine.
In 2003 the Department of Family Medicine became the corporate office for all FM & PHC in Central Region with more than 31 Clinic / Sites with more than 1000 employees. In 2006, the department was transformed into the current structure with a Deputy Executive Director and three Associate Deputy Executive Directors for Clinical Affairs, Operations, and Community Medicine.
Currently, the Family Medicine department has more than 2,500 employees serving our population.
Our appreciation and gratitude to our passionate Family Medicine physicians who are committed to our mission and vision. We could not accomplish what we have right now without devoting their support and cooperation.
We have faced many challenges this year, including evolving changes in the healthcare industry. However, we continue to surpass and embrace the changes as we prepare for the new era in our history of providing a high standard of patient care with modern technologies.
I would also like to extend our appreciation and thanks to our beloved patients.
Lastly, my appreciation and gratitude to the MNGHA leaders for the unrelenting support they have provided for Family Medicine Department throughout the years.
