Al Fouzan wins SR500m university hospital contract
Company track record leads to key Dammam university hospital contract
Saudi Al Fouzan Trading and General Contracting has been awarded a SR 500 million contract to build a university hospital in Dammam.
The 400-bed capacity hospital is seen as a crucial project for the university by the government, which gives special attention and support to its higher education sector.
Board chairman of Al Fouzan Trading and General Contracting, Sheikh Mohammad Al Fouzan said the company's specialist experience in building and designing hospitals in line with modern design styles and high standards, plus its recent Middle East's Best Medical Project Pioneering Award, had led to its appointment for the project.
The company’s latest successful project was The King Abdullah Medical City in Mecca, which was handed over in record time.
The hospital, which will include medical sections, outpatient clinics and educational facilities for the university's medical students, is scheduled to be completed in four years. Eleven stories high, it will also encompass nursing units, specialised and support sections, diagnosis laboratories and operation theaters.
Al Fouzan thanked the Higher Education Ministry for trusting the company to build the university hospital, which they believe will be particularly important for scientific research conducted by the University’s medical students.
