Hill to manage construction of Saudi medical cities
Riyadh, October 10, 2012
Hill International, a global leader in managing construction risk, has received two project management services contracts from Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Health (MOH) for two medical cities and 10 hospitals located throughout the kingdom.
The five-year contracts have a combined estimated value to Hill of approximately SR127.5 million ($34 million).
The King Faisal Medical City in the southern province (Abha) will have a 1,350-bed capacity. The Prince Mohammed bin Abdulaziz Medical City in the Northern Province (Al Jouf) will have 1,000 beds. Both medical cities will incorporate housing and other facilities for medical staff in addition to their hospital facilities.
The 10 hospitals will add an additional 2,600 beds with locations throughout the kingdom. All of these medical projects are part of the kingdom's efforts to improve healthcare services for its rapidly growing population, which is expected to rise from the current 26 million to 29 million by 2015.
Hill's two contracts are part of MOH's plan to implement a professional process for project and construction management services to effectively and efficiently manage time, cost and quality of their capital construction program, a statement said.
"Construction of these 12 projects is critically important for the people of Saudi Arabia," said Raouf S Ghali, president of Hill's Project Management Group (International). "We are honoured to have been selected by MOH to manage such an important healthcare program," added Ghali. – TradeArabia News Service
