WASHINGTON, Nov. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Mohamed Moataz Al-Khayat, CEO of the Qatar-based, full-service construction and development company, UrbCon Trading & Contracting, recently opened a new medical facility near Doha that will provide world-class medical care to people in the region.
The new facility, called the Syrian-American Medical Centre, will cater to outpatients only, and according to Mr. Al-Khayat, is expected to be a popular choice for many individuals from Gulf Cooperation Council nations who are looking for a "five star" level of service.
Mr. Al-Khayat says, "The Syrian-American Medical Centre will bring together what we consider to be the very finest medical personnel from Syria under one facility. Our practitioners have all studied and gained their qualifications from some of the leading U.S. medical institutions and are now directing their expertise to meeting the market demand for first-class health care in Qatar."
With a total of 14 practitioners, the Syrian-American Medical Centre will offer specialists in a variety of areas, including but not limited to, dermatology, endocrinology, plastic surgery and dentistry.
Mr. Al-Khayat added, "While the clinic has been completed to the highest standards in terms of its construction, it is the physicians that fill its offices that will showcase what kind of a facility we're opening here. Having hand-picked the physicians, we are certain that the Syrian-American Medical Centre will be a resounding success for those looking for the very best in health care."
Company founder, Mohamed Raslan Al-Khayat commented, "Health care is one of the most important areas of any society, and we believe that the Syrian-American Medical Centre will make a welcome addition to Qatar's increasingly sophisticated health care facilities, not to mention meet the demand for the country's increasing population."
Costing an estimated $8 million, the clinic is split into four villas in one compound, located in close proximity to the Sidra Medical Centre just outside of the Qatari capital of Doha.
Mr. Al-Khayat is the owner and manager of 17 companies, which include general contracting, commercial and residential developments, building materials, various trading companies, hospitals and restaurants with operations in Syria, Morocco and Qatar. After the start of the Syrian revolution in 2011, Mr. Al-Khayat joined the Syrian opposition and because of that decision, the regime confiscated all his assets in Syria as well as his family's assets. Mr. Al-Khayat now operates his enterprises from Qatar. His background also includes fostering and supporting humanitarian efforts in the Near East.
Earlier this year, Mr. Al-Khayat led a delegation of Syrian businessmen to meet with senior American government officials and legislators in Washington. The purpose of the meeting was to discuss rebuilding Syria and bringing back the Syrian refugees to their home country after achieving stability there. At that time, Mr. Al-Khayat announced that he was going to fund 20 scholarships for Syrian students to study at American universities. He also said that he was establishing a center to combat the spread of extremist orientation and thinking in the Gulf Region.
