As part of our mission at King Khalid Eye Specialist Hospital (KKESH) to provide the highest quality ophthalmic services, the hospital makes full use of all its material, human and information resources to improve these services. At the same time, it is achieving Vision (2030) which the Ministry of Health is adopting to provide comprehensive health services comparable to the services provided in the medically developed countries. Ophthalmology was one of the first medical specialties that enhanced the progress of health sector in Saudi Arabia. KKESH has played a major role in establishing a strong base for this specialty at the regional and international levels.
We are proud that KKESH won a number of awards. This reflects the distinguished work and planning of the hospital cadres, in addition to the modern technologies which have become part of the success tools in the health sector. The latest achievement was the 7th Level of Electronic Health File Accreditation System (HIMSS Stage 7) as the first hospital in the Middle East.
The Government of the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques has played a major role in the continuation of this excellence since the establishment of the hospital in 1404 AH. This great ophthalmic facility has turned an idea and a dream into a reality that serves thousands of citizens and residents.
I would like to extend my thanks and appreciation to His Excellency Dr. Tawfiq bin Fawzan Al Rabiah, and the Advisory Council of King Khalid Eye Specialist Hospital. I also extend thanks to my colleagues who have made major contribution to the hospital continuous success and excellence of services.
In conclusion, I wish that all patients get well. I also hope that God help us to provide the expected health services.
