A Center Dedicated To Your Wellbeing

HIMC is comprised of three main sections, notably the clinic area, the operating rooms and the inpatient floor. The 10 clinic rooms, 4 operating rooms and 20 inpatients rooms are designed to guarantee optimal patient privacy. Consultations take place in the Clinic Space where patients are given a date for surgery. The patient is then accompanied to the inpatient floor, after surgery where he/she is in direct contact with the hospital’s General Practitioner, the surgeon, the anesthesiologist and the nurse. A private lift accompanies the patient to the Operating Room for surgery and back to the room after recuperating in the recovery room which also includes an exceptional intensive care unit.

HIMC’s entire team is dedicated to providing you with excellent, personalized care and service to make your consultation and surgery as comfortable and pleasant as possible. The constant surveillance and the steady care of the medical staff will make you feel reassured, particularly with the regular personal visits made by the Medical Director (Dr.Shammas) after surgery. To further add to the HIMC experience, a hot cooked meal is concocted by a specialized dietician which will be sent straight to your room

No Sources of Infection or Disease

HIMC has 5 operating rooms. The only operations conducted at HIMC are plastic, and are thus clean cases. Surgical cases involving sources of infection or disease (hemorrhoids, gold bladder, appendix, etc.), are restricted, leaving therefore no room for bacterial contamination to propagate. This explains the rate of Post Operative infections at HIMC, which is practically nil.


Personalized Care

The HIMC hospital was specially designed with patients’ luxurious comfort and serenity in mind. In fact with its 2 deluxe suites, the hospital provides ultimate quality, service and individual attention. HIMC disposes of only 20 sumptuously decorated inpatient rooms with shades of blue, green and salmon for a vivid and bright post operative experience. Furthermore, to ensure ultimate safety, an entire intensive care unit is provided for each patient individually, equipped with a system monitor supervising the patient’s complete vital signs.

Pre-Post Operative Care

HIMC’s surgeons meet very stringent safety standards, serving patients with the greatest care. Safety standards are strictly maintained to protect patients at all times during their stay.

Many of the procedures carried out at HIMC are under local anesthetic as day cases or general anesthetic as complex day cases. In both situations, patients will receive full, written pre-operative instructions and will be discharged with a comprehensive set of post-operative directions to ensure utmost security.

Nabil E. Fadel, M.D.(our competent physician) is an Internal Medicine/Physician at St. Joseph University, Hotel Dieu de France Hospital in Beirut. He performs the pre-operative assessment and clearance of patients as well as the post-operative care and reanimation. In addition, he supervises and implements all universal precautions, medical protocols and infection control standards.
