The 60 bed Tanta Branch was opened in 2015 to ease the burden on the main Hospital in Cairo and to cater to the needs of patients in the Delta Region.
We chose the city of Tanta as a strategic location for its closeness to the main branch in Cairo and for serving many of the Delta Governorates at the same time.
Internally, with respect to design, finishing works and furnishings, the new branch is a replica of the main Cairo Hospital with the integration of the last 10 years’ advances in healthcare design. It offers patients the same cozy comfortable family-centered up to date setting for receiving quality care and treatment.
Also, to ensure the same quality of services provided by Tanta, the operations of the new branch had to be totally integrated to and in synchronization with the mother Hospital, through Cerner’s IT system. Moreover, they are relying on the most efficient companies for enabling strong connectivity children’s treatment. Cerner’s informatics system enables all the administration of treatment sessions to patients in the two branches. In case there was patients data and diagnostic tests to be available to everyone in both Cairo and Tanta branches, to facilitate no room for a patient in Cairo branch to take his session between the Hospital in Cairo and the branch in Tanta. Similarly as in the Cairo branch, using Cerner in Tanta enables us to build an accurate realistic database that we could rely on in all the steps of our, an equipped vehicle would transfer the patient to Tanta to take his treatment on time.
Experienced oncology consultants from Cairo are found in Tanta branch on a daily basis. Every area and mode of operations in Tanta have been duplicated on the model of the Cairo Hospital but on a smaller scale: the same kitchen divisions and procedures have been maintained and the same company ensuring housekeeping and sanitation has been retained.
For all of the above, Tanta branch is considered the seventh floor of 57357-Cairo and as vital as the other six floors of the main Hospital.
A contract with Orascom Construction Company was set-up in 2010 to establish the project. The branch was opened for operations on 20/1/2015 while the official opening in attendance of Eng. Ibrahim Mehleb, former prime minister, was on 19/5/2015.
Before the opening the workers received training in the main branch. Some cadres from Cairo branch were transferred to Tanta as they live in the Central Delta area, which consolidated the start of operations.
