Medical City project launched


Al-Fouzan Trading and Contracting has been awarded the tender by Bahrain Arabian Gulf University to construct the King Abdullah Bin Abdulaziz Academic Medical Centre within the King Abdullah Bin Abdulaziz Medical City project.

The university said that the contract will soon be signed for the 30-month contract. The hospital will consist of 288 beds as well as a number of research and excellence centres, including a college of medicine.

Financial terms have not been disclosed although Thomson Reuters Projects has reported that the project is being funded by R1bn (US$267m) from the late King Abdullah Bin Abdulaziz Al Saudi.

In a statement the university said that it would be "a comprehensive centre for medical education and medical services that would offer its services to patients from Bahrain and neighbouring GCC states".

Saudi Arabian construction company Al Fouzan Trading and General Construction Company has considerable experience in hospital construction including the 500-bed Prince Mohammad Bin Abdulaziz Hospital in Riyadh and the US$1.1bn contract for King Faisal Medical City.
