Egypt Launches Cardiac Medical Centre for Athletes - First in the Middle East

To ensure the safety of all its athletes, Egypt has established the first athletic heart center in the Middle East.

This Sunday saw Egypt establish the first Athletic Heart Center (AHC) at Wadi El Neel Hospital, in an effort to diminish possible sports injuries born as a result of inefficient medical care for athletes, according to Egypt Today. 

Described as the biggest medical complex in Egypt and the first of its kind in the Middle East by Minister of Health, Ahmed Emad, the AHC will be overseeing full heart check-ups for athletes. This comes as an attempt to encourage all sports players to undergo the necessary medical examinations and avoid any serious injuries. 

Minister of Youth and Sports, Khaled Abdel Aziz hopes that the center will place Egypt on the global map for sports medicine in that it will be performing full medical check-ups on athletes worldwide. Abdel Aziz adds that a joint collaboration between AHC and the Sports Ministry will soon be signed.The director of Wadi El Neel Hospital, Hazem Khamees explains that the check-ups along with the hospital’s modern services will extend to all athletes in Egypt and abroad following a partnership with the Liverpool John Moores University.

Abdelaziz has urged all olympic committees, sports federations and clubs to cooperate with the center, which is made up of a team of fully qualified and trained professionals. 

Minister of Education and Technical Education, Tareq Shawqi also added that they aim to develop a liaison between AHC and medical colleges all over Egypt.
