Homs - SMART

On Sunday, the al-Aksah private hospital in the village of al-Zaafarana in Northern Homs, Central Syria, closed its doors after two patients died in the hospital in August 2018.

A source in the hospital reported that on Thursday, a child died in the hospital after undergoing hernia surgery. The child left the hospital, but died ten days later due to complications caused by the surgery.

The source added that on Aug. 14, 2018, a woman died during a cesarean section when the doctors anaesthetized her before discovering an infection in her liver. The woman died, but the child survived.

The source added that the parents of the child who died from the hernia complications filed a complaint against the hospital. The Health Directorate of the Syrian government contacted the owner of the hospital, who is close to Russia, informing him of the decision to close the hospital.

The source noted that the owner of the hospital contacted the Russians in Homs to complain about the Health Directorate's decision, but the Russians told the owner to follow the orders and close the hospital. The Russians promised the owner of the hospital to move the hospital to the city of al-Rastan.

The source noted that the owner of the hospital speaks Russian well because he lived in Russia for 20 years. The source added that the hospital was not licensed.

The medical sector in Northern Homs has suffered from the Syrian government's negligence since its forces seized the area. The medical services in Homs have been limited to medical clinics that the Syrian government reopened in some cities and towns since they seized the area.

In mid-May 2018, the Syrian government forces seized Northern Homs and Southern Hama as the last group of forcibly displaced people evacuated the area after an agreement reached between Russia, civil, and military opposition committees and residents in the area.
