Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) has expanded its specialized rehabilitation services with a modern simulated environment located within the Qatar Rehabilitation Institute (QRI).
The Minister of Public Health, Her Excellency Dr Hanan Mohamed Al Kuwari, opened the ‘Easy Street’ patient rehabilitation facility and met with some of the patients who have benefited from the service.
The Easy Street simulates real-world situations in a safe clinical environment for patients to take their first independent steps towards recovery following protracted illness with life-changing medical issues.
HE Dr. Al Kuwari said, “Easy Street is the first of its kind in Qatar and one of only a few such simulated environments in the region. I am extremely pleased to see how well it has turned out and recognize the immense effort of the QRI team who have brought this idea to fruition during the pandemic. This is a true testimony of the ‘can do’ attitude we have in Qatar, which demonstrates that we can achieve almost anything we set out minds to.”
The facility was designed for patients recovering from stroke or brain hemorrhage, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injuries, orthopedic surgeries or other medical issues that have impacted their ability to live at home and conduct basic life tasks.
