His Excellency Minister of Health, Dr. Jawad Awad, commended BASR for providing quality accurate diagnostic services to the Palestinian population from different parts of Palestine, through the newly inaugurated advanced MRI Unit, as this will help promote quality health care in Palestine.

Dr. Jawad Awad delivered his speech during the opening of BASR’s newly established MRI Unit at BASR’s main facility, which is one of the best of its kind in the Middle East region. The opening also encompassed the Governor of Bethlehem, BASR’s Chairman of the Board, General Director and Medical Director as well as the Chief Executive Officer of Modern Technology Company, in addition to several representatives of governmental and civil society institutions.


BASR’s Chairman of the Board welcomed the gathering at the conference hall and commended the Ministry of Health for their longstanding collaboration in improving quality health care in Palestine, highlighting the crucial role Palestinian NGOs play in supporting the Government and attracting new technologies to Palestine.


On the other hand, the Chief Executive Officer of Modern Technology Company presented a delicate explanation of the benefits of the advanced MRI, adding that BASR’s medical team will be able - from now on - to perform diagnoses and follow up their patients online; they will also be able to access all medical reports and radiographs while they are abroad, in order to deliver an instant response to the patients’ urgent needs.


At the end, Dr. Awad cut the ribbon and announced BASR’s readiness to render MRI’s services to all Palestinians without discrimination.
