September 2017

Healthcare projects worth $55.2 billion are currently in the pipeline in the Middle East and North Africa (Mena) region, according to latest industry estimates.

A total of 37 mega hospital projects worth about $28.2 billion are already under way in the Gulf region, and these are expected to add 22,500 hospital beds to existing capacity, according to Alpen Capital Healthcare Report.

The rest of the year is expected to be even more robust for the healthcare projects market, with major projects being undertaken throughout the region, a report released ahead of the Building Healthcare Innovation & Design Show in Dubai, UAE, said.

The Mena region’s premier healthcare build and design show, organised by Informa Life Sciences Exhibitions, will be co-located with Cityscape Global and will take place from September 11 to 13 at the Dubai World Trade Centre. The decision to merge the two independently successful trade shows comes as an effort to create one unified business platform for the full spectrum of the construction, design and development industries in the region, a statement said.

Major new developments expected to be announced at the show from September 11 to 13 at Dubai World Trade Centre.

In the UAE, some of the high-profile projects coming up include Al Ain Hospital, Al Ain; Burjeel Medical City, Abu Dhabi; Gulf Medical University Hospital, Ajman; Mediclinic Parview Hospital, Dubai; and King’s College Hospital, Dubai.

In Saudi Arabia, major projects include King Abdullah Bin Abdulaziz Project for Development of Security Forces Medical Complexes; King Khaled Medical City, Dammam; King Faisal Medical City, Asir; Mouwasat Hospital, Al Khobar; and Amal Mental Health Hospital, Taif.
