Al-Noor Specialist Hospital in Makkah Gears Up for Hajj, Dedicates Center to Heat-Induced Illnesses


Makkah: Al-Noor Specialist Hospital, a member of the Makkah Health Cluster, is ready to offer comprehensive health services to pilgrims during this year’s Hajj season.

The hospital is well-equipped to provide medical, preventive, and diagnostic care to pilgrims.

One of the key services provided by the hospital is treatment of heat-related illnesses, including cases of heat exhaustion. To address these anticipated cases, the hospital has established a specialized center dedicated to heat stroke and heat exhaustion. The center is equipped with water spray nozzles, spray fans, and refrigerators for storing fluids and ice, and operates under the supervision of the emergency department.

The center, the first of its kind at Makkah hospitals, is staffed by qualified national healthcare professionals who are well-versed in treating heat-related conditions. They are available 24/7 to care for patients suffering from heat exhaustion or heat stroke.
