Ministry of Health provides Secondary Health Care Services through several hospitals.
The main hospital in Bahrain is Salmaniya Medical Complex (Public Hospital).
The Salmaniya Medical Complex is a multispecialty health care facility providing
emergency, secondary, and tertiary care to all citizens and residents of Bahrain.
The Accident and Emergency Department provides urgent medical care to the sick and
Inpatient Care is provided at the SMC by admitting patients to any one of the wards
according to the condition of the patient and type of the disease. Wards are separated
according to specialty, and further beds are categorized by sex, age of the patient,
and condition or type of the disease.
Patients who need care are admitted immediately to an "Inpatient Bed" as an emergency
admission, while patients who need inpatient care but their condition does not warrant
immediate admission are waitlisted and admitted on a date requested by the treating
doctor or whenever a bed is available.
