Holy Land: Caritas opens new health centre on West Bank

Caritas Jerusalem has opened a new health centre in Aboud on the West Bank. The   new centre officially opened on 23 July.

The centre  offers  quality service in many different  fields of primary health care, preventative medicine including vaccinations and laboratory  services.
 
Due to the on going  travel restrictions and checkpoints,   the community of Aboud and  about 26 surrounding villages are happy  to have this quality of services on their doorstep. Up til now the closest clinic available was some distance away in Ramallah.
 
The new center is open six days a  week and has been serving an  average of 40 patients per day. 
 
Special services include Urology, Dermatology, and Gynaecology. There is also a dental clinic. The health centre is  equipped with an  emergency delivery  room.  Since  23 July, five  emergency cases have been treated there.
