In sickness, this place will make youbwell

Recently while traveling to Dubai for a meeting, I was adding, at great leisure, the in flight magazine for Kuwait airlines. I smiled when I read the ad about the hospital , al Seef. I have visited the hospital twice as friends have been patients here.
We are often asked about the medical care in Kuwait. I can say that I have visited both private and public hospitals and I know that my preference I to be placed in a private place should there ever be a need. Although, amazingly, we are told that for major events, that the public hospitals are better.
I think what the private hospitals have done is to capture the market on pampering the patient. The culture does a great job of pampering for everything. ( having just returned from a pedicure last evening,- and having had a masseuse visit our home last week, I can speak from experience!!
When friend ME was in the standard room he enjoyed the view of dolphins swimming by every day.
Below is the "story" that accompanies the photos you see. Then see if you wouldn't like to join me for stay. No words were changed...
