Qatar’s Public Works Authority (Ashghal) is tendering for the construction of a mass casualty trauma hospital in the north of Doha.
The project is part of a new medical city to be built on a site in Duhail, next to Qatar University.
The 1,100 bed hospital is slated for completion in 2022, one year later than initially scheduled, according to the tender published in local newspapers.
It will be a trauma level 1 unit – a complete trauma care system that will be open 24 hours a day and staffed by general and specialist surgeons.
he project is being jointly developed by the Supreme Council of Health (SCH) and Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC).
The public works authority is currently drawing up a short-list of companies who will be invited to tender for “project and construction management consultancy services” to manage the build.
Construction would begin in early 2015.
