Saudi Fund for Development inspects $13.4m projects in Jordan
The delegation reviewed the progress of construction work on the Saudi Center for Radiation Treatment in Amman
A delegation from the Saudi Development Fund is inspecting projects funded in Jordan, including a radiation center at the King Abdullah University Hospital.
The Saudi Center for Radiation Treatment is funded by a $13.4m grant from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia through the Saudi Fund for Development.
The delegation reviewed the progress of construction and infrastructure work on the center, which is on schedule to open doors in March, according to the state-run Saudi Press Agency.
The delegation was provided a detailed explanation on the services covered by the project, as well as the medical equipment needed for patients who will require radiation and chemotherapy.
The project is expected to relieve pressure on hospitals in the Jordanian capital of Amman, which are coping with increased demand from patients looking for specialised treatments.
