Beirut, Lebanon – 2013: Clemenceau Medical Center (CMC) – Beirut was recognized for its outstanding healthcare achievements and medical innovations during the 2013 Arab Health Exhibition and Congress held in Dubai this last January. Being one of only 8 awarded medical institutions across the Middle East, CMC received the “Excellence in Imaging and Diagnostics” Award during the Arab Health Achievement & Innovation Awards 2013 Ceremony.
“We are very proud to be recognized by international healthcare leaders and to have been chosen to receive this valuable award” commented Dr. Mounes Kalaawi, CEO of Clemenceau Medical Center.
He added: “We, at CMC, have worked hard to establish a state-of-the-art Imaging and Radiology Department equipped with only the latest technologies found in the most advanced radiology centers around the world. We made sure that this same department would integrate the best safety measures to safeguard our patients’ health and control any risk of them getting exposed to radiations. We’ve also designed a soothing setup that would provide our patients and their respective family members with all the comfort and tranquility they need, under the quality care of highly-trained staff members”.
CMC’s Imaging and Radiology Department is run by top-notch local and international medical experts covering all radiology specialties. The department undergoes constant upgrades, the latest of which was the acquisition of a CT Scan 750 HD device, known for its ability to reduce exposure to radiations by 50 to 83%. Furthermore, the center will soon acquire a new magnetic 3 Tesla device: a first-of-a-kind silent magnetic resonance imaging machine.
