  • High quality of service
  • High technology (IMC uses the latest technology)
  • Size of project (IMC is one of biggest hospitals in Saudi Arabia)
  • Diversity of services (the hospital has many departments such as a family medical center, eye center, an advanced minimally invasive and bariatric surgery center, and a head and neck surgery department).
