During its third meeting in 2020, the Tender Board in Oman has reportedly awarded a $3.6m (OMR15.4m) contract in the healthcare industry for the construction of a hospital in the Wilayat of Al Mazyouna in the governorate of Dhofar in the Sultanate.
According to the Oman News Agency, the hospital is being constructed for the country’s Ministry of Health.
The meeting was held in the presence of Dr. Rasheed bin Al Safi Al-Hraibi, chairman of the Tender Board.
Earlier this month, the chief executive officer of Oman Investment Corporation SAOC (OIC) — a private equity investment firm — Kalat Al-Balushi said that Aman Healthcare Services, its first private equity investment vehicle, will begin construction work on its first women and children hospital in Sohar in Q2 2020. According to Al-Balushi the hospital will be operational in 2022.
As part of Phase 1 of Aman Healthcare’s planned projects in the Sultanate, it will develop two specialised women and children hospitals in Muscat and Sohar.
In February 2020, Iskan Oman Investment Company (IOIC) revealed plans to expand its KIMS Medical Complex in the Sultanate’s Duqm in a move to become an integrated specialised healthcare facility. IOIC will implement the project in partnership with KIMS Healthcare Group, with the new hospital set to be home to 50 beds.
