The visit witnessed a review of the strategic plan for the city, and the inauguration of a number of development projects, which included the general hospital emergency expansion project, the digital operations department, the laboratory department, the sterilization department, pediatric intensive care, and neonatal intensive care.
 The emergency expansion work project is based on increasing the capacity for emergencies by about 28%. The digital operations center is expected to conduct about 18,000 operations annually, while the main hall project includes rehabilitation and equipping it with the latest technology, with a capacity of more than 540 seats.

It is noteworthy that King Saud Medical City was established in 1956 under the name of King Saud I Hospital, until the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz - may Allah have mercy on him - issued a decision in 2010 to change the name to the current one.
