King Fahd Hospital Taps STC to connect medical radiation with cloud computing


Saudi Telecom Company (STC) has launched the first-of-its-kind radiography platform (Enterprise Medical Imaging) in the Kingdom, in collaboration with the Ministry of Health at King Fahd General Hospital in Madinah.

As a result, this will enhance and support the quality and efficiency of the services provided to the patients in line with the objectives of the Kingdom’s Digital Transformation Vision 2030. ”

Moreover, Mu’awwad emphasized that this partnership with the Ministry of Health and its affiliate institutions is of utmost importance, and pointed out that STC is working on building and developing new technology solutions for various sectors to help implement cloud computing technology and shape the future of digital transformation in the Kingdom.
