The national healthcare system of the Sultanate of Oman is renowned for its strong grounds. In reality, the country's healthcare industry has seen an impressive expansion in recent decades. Even though the government has a significant presence in the industry and offers modern health solutions and patient care services, it has always welcomed and supported private healthcare providers to help make Oman a regional healthcare hub.
It has been quite difficult to provide universal healthcare to a mixed population of Omanis and expats. Today, however, even rural, sparsely populated towns and villages have access to healthcare.
The Sultanate of Oman has developed a variety of services, one of which is the health service. This development is currently a significant indication of the advancement of civilization.
