Construction of $5.7m Ajman hospital to start in May
Al Ihsan Charity Association said construction of its Ajman hospital will start in May 2018
Construction work on a $5.7m (AED21m) hospital in Ajman, UAE, will commence in May 2018.
Construction work on the Zayed One Day Surgery Hospital will start in less than four weeks’ time, according to the state-owned Emirates News Agency (WAM).
It will be built for Al Ihsan Charity Association (ACA).
The hospital will be built on land in Rashidiya, downtown Ajman City. The plot was donated to ACA by its chairman, Sheikh Mohammed bin Ali Al Nuaimi.
The firm tasked with physically building the Zayed One Day Surgery Hospital in Ajman is not known.
"The hospital is the maiden project of the ACA's initiatives for the Year of Zayed 2018 and its operational and furniture cost is estimated at more than AED21m," said Dr Sheikh Abdul Aziz bin Ali Al Nuaimi, chief executive officer of ACA.
The surgery is set to open by the end 2019. It will complement ACA’s Al Ihsan Medical Complex in Ras Al Khaimah, which was launched more than a decade ago by the charity to provide medical and dental care to thousands of people struggling to pay for healthcare.
The UAE has a long-term strategy to develop its healthcare sector. Across the country, the medical industry has seen major structural changes as it adapts to meet the medical demands of a both a younger, more health-conscious Millennial workforce, alongside the healthcare needs of older expat generations in Abu Dhabi and Dubai.
In the field of medical-related construction projects, Saudi Arabian healthcare provider Fakeeh Care signed a deal with Emitac Healthcare Solutions in February 2018 to provide medical solutions to a hospital in Dubai Silicon Oasis.
In October 2017, Zulekha Healthcare announced plans to build a 150-bed hospital in Sharjah.
