A Saudi hospital has announced plans to build a $533.3mn (SAR 2bn) college hospital at Dubai Silicon Oasis.
Soliman Fakeeh Hospital has appointed an Italian firm to design the 300-bed project which is scheduled for completion in the final quarter of 2017.
“The SAR 2bn medical academic project that the Soliman Fakeeh Hospital plans to establish in collaboration with the UAE at Dubai’s Silicon [Oasis] is part of the hospital’s expansion plan,” chairman of the Board of Directors and CEO of the Soliman Fakeeh Hospital Mazen Fakeih said in a statement to Arab News.
The facility will function as both a hospital and medical college, having the capacity to provide beds for 40,000 patients and conduct 20,000 surgeries annually, Fakeih added.
It will offer a comprehensive medical services establishment with mother and child health care, cardiac, spinal and laser and plastic surgeries in addition to treatment for obesity.
