King Abdulaziz Medical Cities
King Abdulaziz Medical Cities (Also known as National Guard Health Affairs)
JEDDAH, RIYADH, DAMMAM, AL AHSA AND MADINAH
This group comprises four major Hospitals with facilities in Riyadh, Jeddah, Al Ahsa and Dammam which have a combined total of 2,014 beds. And operate to American Joint Commission International Accreditation (JCIA) standards. The National Guard Health System provides optimum healthcare to their personnel, dependent, other eligible patients and private / VIP patients.
National Guard Healthcare entities, in existence since 1983, operated separately and independently prior to 1994 with each working to a different set of standards. In order to ensure higher unified standards of patient care and practice, the healthcare organizations were merged and integrated under one new corporate organization namely National Guard Health Affairs.
In 2002, a Royal Decree was granted to officially rename all existing National Guard Health Affairs and new complexes in a similar manner to signify the corporate identity. Under this approval, the King Abdulaziz Medical Cities (KAMC) were formed.
