King Mohammed VI inaugurated, on Monday at Sidi Moumen district in Casablanca, a community medical center financed by the Mohammed V Foundation for Solidarity. The construction works of the solidarity-based project, which cost 60 million dirhams, were launched by the monarch in 2016. This new project that will upgrade proximity health services for the population of Sidi Moumen translates the King’s commitment to improve medical services and health care for the underprivileged and ensure comprehensive, sustainable and integrated human development. It is also in line with the sovereign’s efforts to promote access of disadvantaged social layers to quality basic health care and ensure periodic medical consultations to patients requiring regular medical follow-up. The center, which has a modern state-of-the art equipment, also houses a dental care unit, a medical imaging unit (radiology, mammography, ultrasound, dental panoramic X-ray), a medical analysis laboratory, a sterilization unit, 12 hospital beds, a pharmacy, and a morgue.
