Saudi German Hospitals Group, one of the largest private hospital groups in the MENA region, said on Tuesday it is set to open a new AED300 million ($81 million) healthcare facility in Ajman.
The tertiary-care speciality and sub-speciality facility will be the biggest hospital in Ajman, designed to cater to the growing population across all northern emirates.
Spanning over 41,062 square metres, the 200-bed hospital will commence operations soon, the company said in a statement.
With 46 clinics and over 20 specialities, Saudi German Hospital, Ajman, will be the group’s third healthcare facility in the UAE, and 10th across the MENA region.
Dr Reem Osman, CEO of Saudi German Hospitals Group – UAE, said: “Saudi German Group has a very well-thought out expansion programme to reach out to maximum number of patients in the UAE and the new state-of-the-art facility in Ajman is part of the plan.
"With two hospitals successfully running in Dubai and Sharjah, we aim to simulate the same international standards in SGH-Ajman that we have adopted in our other facilities.”
Osman added: “The hospital is the first phase of our expansion; in the second phase, we plan to build centres of excellence, medical colleges and staff accommodation, among other features. Together they will make up the Batterjee Medical City, work for which has already begun in Dubai."For all the latest health tips & news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
