Photographic Memory: Going mobile

Touring clinics were common in Aramco’s early days.

Photographic Memory: Going mobile
This mobile clinic is one of three that the company began operating in 1954 in the Abqaiq industrial area. The clinics toured industrial areas and gave on-the-spot treatment for minor injuries, thus saving employees trips to a health center. Because of the distance required to get to a health center, most employees neglected their injuries and cuts. Each mobile clinic was staffed with one doctor and one nurse, and they toured areas as remote as Ras al- Misha‘ab, Nariyah and the Rub‘ al-Khali. (Photo by Khalil Rissas)
