Two New Medical Facilities Inaugurated in King Abdulaziz Medical City

Two new medical facilities have opened in King Abdulaziz Medical City in Riyadh, furthering the Kingdom’s appeal to global medical tourism for a variety of specialist treatments. The two newly-inaugurated facilities were the King Abdullah Specialist Children’s Hospital, and the Centre for Neurosurgery and Trauma.

The new children’s hospital is a 14-floor facility with a footprint of 100,000 square metres, containing 467 beds for patients. It was built in accordance with high standards of sustainability and energy efficiency, and has received an award from US Green Building Council for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED).

The six-storey Centre for Neurosurgery and Trauma is a smaller facility, with a footprint of 60,000 square metres and a capacity of 252 beds. Equipped with the latest technology for neurological medicine, the facility is set to become a hub for treatment as well as education, training, and research.
