The Rehabilitation Hospital was opened in 1425 H corresponding to 2004 under the patronage of His Excellency then the Minister of Health. It is the first hospital affiliated to the Ministry of Health to provide comprehensive rehabilitation services for newly injured and patients who need rehabilitation treatment services in all ages. The hospital is also the first medical institution outside North America to obtain CARF Accreditation, after CARF conducted a full survey of all rehabilitation services over two years. Today, KFMC is a CARF member and officials from Rehabilitation Hospital assess EU and US hospitals.
The Hospital's first step towards accomplishing its vision was taking the lead in providing comprehensive rehabilitation services for:
Spinal cord injuries; patients with head injuries; stroke patients; cerebral palsy patients; amputees; patients with tumors and cardiovascular disease; patients with motor system injuries; and other disabilities.
