Arabian Gulf University has said bids have been received for construction of the multi-million-dollar King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Medical City, with the contractor expected to be finalised in June and work due to commence in the third quarter of the year.
The project will be built on a huge plot at Askar, donated by His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa and is funded by a USD1 billion grant from the late Saudi King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Saud.
In a statement, Arabian Gulf University said construction was expected to take two years and the hospital is scheduled to start receiving patients in early 2021.
Once operational the medical city will have 500 beds, a full range of outpatient clinics, 15 operating rooms and quality support medical services such as advanced laboratories and a pharmacy.
