Last Wednesday, on the 14th of December, Royal Bahrain Hospital celebrated the birth of the 50th baby in the hospital’s state-of-the-art maternity ward. During the celebratory cake cutting ceremony, Dr. Ravi Preet, Chief Operating Officer at the hospital commented that “We’re very pleased with reaching this milestone. To have arrived at this point shows the fruit of our hard work.”
It was only back in August, when the first baby was born, and to have reached the 50th baby in less than five months shows how fast news about the hospital’s high-end maternity department has spread.
The newborn Bahraini boy was born on Wednesday afternoon, and medical staff reports that he and the mother are well and healthy. Her doctor was Dr. Kiran Bijlan [MD, BGO], Specialist Gynecologist, who is currently working at Royal Bahrain Hospital.
The family has expressed their happiness and gratitude to the hospital staff for their services. The mother says “Dr. Kiran was very good, I was very pleased with her support and work throughout the process, especially as it was my first baby. It went by very smoothly thanks to her.”
In celebration of this milestone, Royal Bahrain Hospital has gifted the new baby with some privileges, including three months’ worth of free consultations with the pediatrician, a substantial discount on vaccines and laboratory investigations, in addition to a baby kit for the newborn.
Dr. Abdul Gaffar, Medical Director of Royal Bahrain Hospital cheerfully added in that “Our hospital aims to provide services for people of all walks in Bahrain, and we’re very happy to celebrate this baby, and wish to have the privilege of having more births in the future.”
