How to handle

Request an Appointment

Everyone can request an appointment at “Arabkir” MC-ICAH following the instructions; 


1. For emergencies, the reception of “Arabkir” MC-ICAH (“Reception and Emergency Room”) works 24 hours a day.  For example, if a child has fever, dizziness, acute pain or is unconscious, and you called an ambulance and the doctor decided that the child needs urgent inpatient care. You can bring the child to “Arabkir” MC-ICAH yourself, if you see that your child is in such condition listed above. In those cases there’s no need for a referral or to make an appointment.   


2.  If the child needs medical service and care, but their condition is not assessed as urgent, you can apply to “Arabkir” MC - ICAH for a scheduled visit, for which you need a referral. The referrals are provided by doctors of primary health care clinics and can be given for:

  • consultations with specialists

  • clarifying the diagnosis

  • some clinical and paraclinical examinations 

  • inpatient care

The referrals are sent via electronic health system, and only the first type of referrals (for consultations with specialists) are sent in paper-form. 


The doctor in your primary health care clinic makes a note on the referral, which indicates why it can be used in the medical complex.
The referral is valid for one month from the date of issue. After receiving the referral, you should call the department and register for a visit. Make sure to bring the copies of your child’s birth certificate and parent’s passport to register in the medical complex.


3. If your child undergoes dispensary observation at “Arabkir” MC (in accordance with the Ministry of Health’s annual visiting schedule) and you regularly bring them to the dispensary room, you should call and register for a visit, to save both your and your doctor’s time.


4.  If you prefer to make a scheduled visit to “Arabkir” MC without a referral from your primary health care center, you should pay for medical care and services. But in this case as well, you must register in advance. Payment does not release you from the queue. 


5.  “Arabkir” MC-ICAH provides services to adults as well. In most cases those services are on a paid basis, except the cases provided by law.   



  • There are some clinical and paraclinical examinations and interventions that are not referred by the state. In that case either patients/their relatives must pay for medical services, or the insurance company, if the patient is insured.

  • Referred medical services are provided to the citizens of the Republic of Armenia only.

Artsakh Children in the camp of “Arabkir”
  The “Aparan” resort camp continues to provide days filled with educational, sports, resting and rehabilitation programs. This year, around ten children of the campers are from Artsakh, including Stepanakert and other cities and villages. They, like others, are registered at various dispensaries of the “Arabkir” medical center and visit for regular checkups, examinations, and to receive medications. These children from Artsakh were in Armenia, when the only road back home was closed. Their participation in the camp was made possible through the support of the “Arabkir” United Children’s Charity Foundation. Andranik, Aren and Arman are brothers from Aygestan village in Askeran. Aren likes football hours in the camp, while Andranik likes interacting with other children. Here they found new friends, new connections and are hopeful there will be more opportunities to meet and spend time together. And for Marcel, the camp will be particularly memorable. It is here that he turned 10 in the happy company of children and older campers. Marcel is from Stepanakert. On his first day at the camp, he missed his parents, and it was for the first time he would be alone. But now, especially after his special birthday celebration, he will miss his friends and teachers. He says “I am grateful, I had no idea that my birthday would turn out this wonderful.”  We would like to congratulate Marcel and wish health and success to all the children.
