New hospital opens in Dammam
The facility is currently operating at partial capacity, with plans to fully open at the end of next year
The Almana Group has opened a new hospital in the city of Dammam, Saudi Arabia. The facility, called the Aziziah Dammam Hospital, boasts a total floor space of 75,000m2.
The hospital is only partially operational at present, but when fully completed at the end of 2024, will have 52 clinics and a total of 185 beds.
Almama stated that the hospital features ‘state-of-the-art operating rooms’, a laboratory, a pathology department, as well as a ‘fully automated robotic pharmacy’. It will also take on 960 healthcare workers in its first phase of operation.
The hospital will offer a range of services at all hours, including internal medicine, general surgery, paediatrics, obstetrics and gynaecology, orthopaedics, cardiology, urology, and pre-anaesthesia.
“The new hospital provides patients access to a global network of physicians and specialists to provide the highest quality care and a world-class patient experience built around the best practices at Almana,” said Dr Saleh Al Ahmed, the hospital’s Medical Director.
In the UAE, Dubai’s Mediclinic Parkview Hospital also recently opened a new Medical Oncology Unit.
