National Guard Health Affailrs

National Guard Health Affairs (NGHA) is one of the largest health organizations in the Kingdom providing modern medical care to National Guard employees & their dependents, as well as to Saudi Nationals with tertiary health problems.

Under the umbrellla of NGHA, there are four hospitals and sixty primary and secondary health centers around the Kingdom. Two of these hospitals are Imam AbdulRahman Al-Faisal Hospital (IAAFH) in Dammam and King Abdulaziz Hospital (KAH) in Al Ahsa.

The other two hospitals have expanded over the last few years to become major medical cities; namely King Abdulaziz Medical City (KAMC) in Riyadh and KAMC in Jeddah.

NGHA has also become well known internationally, especially in successful conjoined twins separations. Nine sets of conjoined twins have been successfully separated at KAMC in Riyadh. This is only one example of many high level services that have made NGHA the heart of medicine in Saudi Arabia.
