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.

Inventory at “ArBeS” Health Center 
An “Inventory” has been opened at the “ArBeS” Health Center, functioning similarly to a library, but instead providing equipment and furniture to children undergoing rehabilitation therapy at “ArBeS”. The aim is to support children’s families ensuring they have necessary equipment at home such as special tables and chairs, stands, rollers, mattresses, and folding ramps. This type of equipment is particularly vital for children with musculoskeletal disorders. Recognizing this, parents have joined forces united in the “Source” Foundation under the leadership of Marina Parazyan, to implement various projects aimed at enhancing the quality of children's lives.     This project, supported by UNICEF and the “Izmirlian” charitable foundation, is a successful example of collaboration that parents believe should continue on an interdepartmental level.     The opening ceremony of the “Inventory” was attended by Deputy Minister of Health Artak Jumayan, Armen Chobanyan (head of the Armenian office of the “Izmirlian” Charitable Foundation), Maya Simonyan (Early Childhood Development officer of UNICEF) , Arman Babloyan (director of the “Arabkir” MC-ICAH), Ara Babloyan (scientific head of “Arabkir” MC-ICAH), Manushak Yeritsyan (head of the “ArBeS” Health Center), specialists, parents, and other guests.   Ara Babloyan acknowledged the proactive role of parents, emphasizing that even the most brilliant ideas would be unattainable without strong parental connections. The collaboration between the “Source” Foundation and “Arabkir” MC serves as an example of this, and there is confidence that the project will succeed.
