Abu Dhabi General Services Company (Musanada) has revealed that 89 percent of the AED4.4 billion ($1.2 billion) New Al Ain Hospital, a project being executed in collaboration with Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (SEHA), is now complete.

The new hospital will have 719 beds, including 510 beds for general medicine, surgery, children’s ward and maternity and royal suites, 67 for ICU, 142 for medical rehabilitation.

It will also include 104 clinics, 17 radiology rooms for X-ray, CT Scan and MRI services, as well as 22 specialised rooms for endoscopy diagnosis and procedures.

There will also be an educational and simulation building equipped with simulation rooms, learning halls, and a central library.

The project also features a car parking facility accommodating up to 1,573 cars in two underground floors, in addition to some external buildings such as an administration building, the Al Ain Region Central Morgue and the primary substation.

The company said that there are approximately 3,100 workers along with six main contracts engaged in the project, which started in March 2014.
