2. It is the first privately run women's health center in the Middle East.

3. It features a full suite of imaging systems and healthcare informatics solutions to help with diagnosis and the development of treatment plans. It is also the only private hospital facility in the Middle East to offer its patients tomography.

4. Women who have breast MRIs and other diagnostic testing at Al Khalidi will have the ability to receive a second opinion from LHMC physicians.

5. Linda Moulton, CEO of Executive & International Health for LHMC, said in a news release the new facility expands Al Khalidi's capabilities in important areas. She added, "Our collaborative relationship with Al Khalidi strengthens both institutions and has the benefit of providing women extensive, expert care at the local level."
