Saudi health minister Dr. Abdullah Al-Rabeeah launched several new healthcare projects worth a combined $400m in the Hail province yesterday.

The new projects include a $70m 300-bed general hospital, and another 300-bed hospital southwest of Hail at a cost of $75m.

The minister also opened 16 health centres and lay the foundations for 18 others. He will also launch a heart centre and a 40-bed centre for kidney-related treatment.

“These projects are implemented as a result of the unlimited support of the government and they will have a big impact on improving services,” Al-Rabeeah said.

“The ministry has embarked on a major program to develop health facilities and programs in order to win the satisfaction of patients,” he said.
