A state-of-the-art medical complex will be built in Muharraq as part of plans to promote health services in Bahrain.
HRH Prime Minister Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa was yesterday updated on initial engineering designs, our sister newspaper, the Gulf Daily News reported.
He directed the ministries of health and works to draw up technical blueprints in addition to an executive time-plan and the estimated budget.
The medical facility will include a maternity hospital and two centres for long-term residence patients and diabetics.

He stressed the need to ensure premium and speedy health services for citizens, particularly lab medical analyses.
