A multi-purpose hospital to be constructed near Oman’s capital Muscat will open in 2018.
The RO72-million ($187 million) Al Madina International Hospital, to be built by Al Madina Investment, will be an integrated health care complex comprising a 225-bed tertiary-care hospital, 120-key three-star hotel apartments, 300 residential apartments, a fitness centre and a dedicated retail space within the premises, said the report in the Muscat Daily.
Khamis Al Kiyumi, vice chairman and managing director of Al Madina Investment, said: “We have always been a market mover when it comes to groundbreaking and innovative investment opportunities in Oman. Al Madina International Hospital is an integrated multi-use healthcare complex that will benefit the economy immensely.”
The Al Madina Group also plans to open a network of clinics, which will refer patients to the main health-care facility in Muscat.
The new hospital is being built to cater to a rising demand for specialised healthcare services in the sultanate.
