Qatar's Sidra Medical and Research Center is set to be fully open to patients by 2015, Khalid Al Mohannadi, a spokesman for the facility told Doha News.

Sidra is funded by Qatar Foundation (QA) with the world’s largest endowment for a medical and research centre of $7.9bn.

Saad Al Muhannadi, newly appointed chief executive officer of QF told The Peninsula newspaper: "A hospital is not a building, it includes services, facilities and equipment and everything should be ready for opening. Services at the Sidra are planned to be very innovative.”

Mohannadi also told Doha News that the Sidra Medical and Research Center will be fully equipped by 2014  and will undergo a testing phase.

Sidra is situated opposite Education City and adjacent to the Qatar National Convention Center and Qatar Science and Technology Park.

The centre aims to provide a new standard of health care to women and children alongside medical training and research.

“We are aiming to be fully operational by 2015,” concluded Mohannadi.
