Altamash Medical Hospital

Altamash Institute of Dental Medicine is a leading dental institute and hospital since the last 14 years. It is the only institute that provides state-of-the-art education and facilities in collaboration with the Karolinska Institute in Sweden.

Healthcare is in the midst of dramatic change. New technologies, new medications and new approaches for treating the sick have changed the way we deliver care. Societal, economic and legislative forces influence how we deliver and provide care.

At a time when people from all socio-economic backgrounds desperately need easy access to the best health-care services, an initiative has been taken to provide optimum medical healthcare services by announcing the establishment of Altamash Medical Hospital.

Altamash Medical Hospital will have highly skilled healthcare providers and exceptional health-care services in the fields of General Surgery, General Medicine, ENT, Obstetrics/Gynaecology and Allied subjects.

The hospital is nearing completion and will be commissioned by the end of 2015.
