Family Medicine - Polyclinics

 


The Department of Family Medicine & Polyclinics is comprised of two Sections namely:  Family Medicine and Polyclinics. 

The Section of Family Medicine is responsible for the health care needs of hospital employees and their eligible dependents of all age groups (approximately 35,000).  The major goal of Family Medicine is to provide cost-effective, efficient and evidence-based health care services.  Family Medicine provides services that include screening, diagnosis, management and prevention of physical and psychosocial conditions, as well as providing health education and medical counseling, occupational and infection control services including assessment of pre-employment, needle stick injuries and TB surveillance. 

 

The Section of Polyclinics serves as an initial assessment and referral clinic to determine a patient's eligibility for tertiary care services at King Faisal Specialist Hospital.   It is also an ambulatory care facility for tertiary care patients who need special additional management of their chronic diseases.  In addition, Polyclinics provides back up support to the Emergency Room for cases which need urgent follow-up.  Polyclinics are comprised of Medical, Pediatrics and Orthopedic Clinic.
