Sharjah Healthcare City project set to double in size


Sharjah Healthcare City Authority (SHCC) on Tuesday announced that the Abu Dhabi-based Ahalia Group has been awarded the permission to set up a $100 million 120-bed hospital in the emirate.

The multi-specialty hospital spread across 50,000 square metres is the first hospital to set up within the mega healthcare city, state news agency WAM reported.

“Furthermore, I am happy to announce that the Sharjah Healthcare City plans have nearly doubled, ensuring that we are able to provide people with the best possible medical treatment that technology has to offer.

“The extended healthcare city will now provide state-of-the-art medical services to rival those found anywhere in the world and position the emirate as one of the top medical tourism destinations.”

Dr VS Gopal, managing director of Ahalia Group of Hospitals, added: “We aim to be able to fulfil the healthcare requirements in Sharjah by utilising the best industry practices, with the help of the latest technology in the hands of some of the world’s the best healthcare professionals. We aim to start the construction by end of this year.”

The construction of the healthcare city, is expected to be completed in several phases. The clinical building and healthcare offices built over 10,000 square metres is scheduled to start this year.
