Clinic Opens in Kabul for Aviation, Catering, Engineering and FM Contractors

Company News, Critical Infrastructure, Healthcare & Educational Facilities

Iqarus has today announced the opening of the American Medical Center (AMC) at Hamid Karzai International Airport, Afghanistan.

The clinic, the only non-military medical resource within the airport perimeter, will provide a wide range of healthcare services including primary and acute health consultations and treatments.

It will serve contractors from the aviation, catering, engineering and facilities management sectors based in the military segment of the airport.


The clinic will offer acute medical, minor trauma stabilisation, insurance based employment medicals, visa medicals, travel health consultations, immunisations, physical therapy, routine and emergency dental care, pharmacy services, aeromed liaison, patient evacuation and repatriation services.

Expecting to serve over 2,000 members of the international community, the clinic employs internationally qualified staff, including a doctor, nurse, pharmacy dispenser, and an administrative team.


Iqarus, the provider of intelligent and integrated healthcare for demanding and complex environments, acquired the clinic from Jataro LLC prior to the completion of the build. As part of the deal, Iqarus also purchased the American Medical Clinic in District 10 of Kabul.

Both centres have an Afghanistan Ministry of Public Health license and are the only medical centres in Afghanistan with Centre for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) approval.

The development comes as part of Iqarus's continued strategy to invest in its people and processes and follows recent acquisitions of RSOH and Exmed. Iqarus has also recently appointed former foreign and commonwealth office director general Martin Clements CMG OBE as chairman, Matthew Partridge as chief technology officer
 and Dr Rickard Moen as chief medical officer.

Iqarus provides front-line healthcare services to oil and gas, mining, construction, governmental, and non-profit organisations operating in the Middle-East, North Sea, Africa, Asia and the Americas.

Andrew Hames, chief commercial development officer
, Iqarus, said: “We are delighted to be opening this new facility. The clinic will provide state-of-the-art services for a diverse group of people operating within the airport.


“Previously, companies would incur significant expense by sending staff overseas to receive certain types of medical treatment. Now, with the introduction of our new facility, we hope to help minimise cost as well as save time for both individuals and companies based in the area.”
