Abu Dhabi based Ahalia Group to launch a US$100 million, 120-bed multi-speciality hospital spread across 50,000 square meters, the first hospital to set its footprint within the mega healthcare city. Ahalia Group had signed an MoU last year with Sharjah Healthcare City Authority (SHCC) which enabled both the entities to move forward with this major announcement. The hospital will be built in Al Rahmania with the construction set to begin by end of this year.
SHCC’s the Sharjah Healthcare City plans have nearly doubled its area to 4.8 million square meters from the previously stated 2.4 million square meters to accommodate several global hospitals and other related organisations. With this new initiative, SHCC will be able to ensure the nation has access to immediate and reliable healthcare solutions with state-of-the-art medical services to rival those found anywhere in the world and set Sharjah as one of the top medical tourism destinations.
As part of the updated plan, a state-of-the-art medical logistics zone will be created in the SHCC to transport medical and pharmaceutical supplies due to its proximity to the airport. The construction of the healthcare city is expected to be completed in several phases with the clinical building and healthcare offices built over 10000 square meters scheduled to start after summer.
