Riyadh: Riyadh's 1st  Health Cluster achieved an exceptional accomplishment by winning 7 awards in various categories of the 'Health Performance' award in its sixth edition, during the annual ceremony held on Monday under the patronage of the Saudi Minister of Health, Fahd Al-Jalajel.

Key Achievements include securing first place in the Critical Care Improvement category for their project enhancing tracheostomy practices in intensive care units.
