Abu Dhabi starts Sheikh Khalifa Medical City prequalification

21 February 2012

Project involves building a 838-bed hospital

Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (Seha) has invited contractors to prequalify for the contract to build Sheikh Khalifa Medical City on Abu Dhabi island.

The hospital will cover a total area of 3 million square feet and will combine general hospital facilities with a trauma centre, and women’s and paediatric centres, with a total of 838 beds. The central area of the proposed medical campus will contain restaurants, retail and education spaces. Construction work on the scheme is scheduled to start in 2013.

US-based Skidmore, Owings & Merrill (SOM) is the architect.

The project will add to other healthcare facilities on the island that together are also known as Sheikh Khalifa Medical City. It was created in 2005 following the merger of all publicly held healthcare organisations on Abu Dhabi island. In 2007, it came under the management of US-based Cleveland Clinic.
