Contractors have submitted bids for the contract to build the Arzanah Medical Complex on Abu Dhabi Island, in the latest healthcare scheme to move ahead in the emirate.

According to sources working on the project, contractors submitted bids for the work at the end of the first week of January.

The bids were submitted to Capitala, a joint venture between the Abu Dhabi government-controlled Mubadala Development Company and Singapore-based developer Capitaland.

The complex, in the Arzanah development, will provide dentistry, dermatology, paediatrics and general practice medicine.

The engineering consultant is Canada’s Ellisdon. Singapore-based healthcare provider AsiaMedic will manage the centre when it is completed.

Arzanah is a 1.4-square-kilometre, mixed-use development planned for the area surrounding Zayed main stadium on Abu Dhabi Island, close to Khaleej al-Arabi road and the Hudayriat channel.

The wider development will include residential, commercial, sports and leisure accommodation and is also being developed by Capitala (MEED 22:11:09).

Mubadala has already received bids this month for the contract to build the Tawam Hospital in Al-Ain and the Cleveland Clinic in Abu Dhabi.
