The long-awaited Royal Hospital for Women is gearing towards opening in mid-2019. It recently held its first meeting of the board of directors since the acquisition of a majority stake (69.3 per cent) by Amanat Holdings PJSC and significant progress has been made on hiring and commissioning plans for the female-focused facility.
Board chairman, Hamad Abdulla Al Shamsi, said: “The Royal Hospital for Women (RHW) will be among the most advanced medical facilities, built to cater to the specialised healthcare needs of women. Underpinned by the progress made on hiring, solid infrastructure equipped with cutting-edge medical equipment and the support of our operating partner, the hospital is on track to become the leading women’s healthcare facility in the Kingdom, and is in the final stages of appointing a leading multinational healthcare service provider as the operating partner. This partner will assist RHW in implementing pre-operational initiatives and managing operations.”
Designed to provide comprehensive care to inpatients and outpatients, the hospital’s state-of-the-art facilities will include advanced operating theatres, high dependency rooms, labour and delivery rooms as well as daycare/minor procedure rooms. RHW will also include the first and only Level–III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit among private hospitals in Bahrain.
