08 January 2013
The Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, May Allah protect him, has approved renaming the Medical Complex Project in the north of Jeddah Province to be “King Abdullah Medical Complex in Jeddah”.
This was revealed by His Excellency the Minister of Health, Dr. Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al-Rabeeah, who expressed his utmost thanks and gratitude to the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques for his unstinting support and incessant patronage of health services, as well as his keen interest in providing health care for citizens.
“This complex is reckoned a substantial addition to the MOH's health facilities in Jeddah province,” said Dr. Al-Rabeeah. “It is expected to participate in support Jeddah's health facilities, and meet citizens' requirements.”
For the sake of clarity, Dr. Al-Rabeeah pointed out that this project is located in the north of Jeddah, with a bed capacity of 1100 beds. It is an integrated complex, lying on an area of 226.000 square meters. It comprises a specialist hospital with a capacity of 500 beds, lying on an area of 75.000 square meters, including 50 intensive care beds, 20 nursery units for newborns, and 16 beds for burns, in addition to a center for accidents and injuries, a center for neurosciences, a specialized center for infertility, 8 modern digital operation theatres, two operation rooms for caesareans, two radiological devices for cardiac catheterization and coronary intervention, a new high-tech laboratory, 45 outpatient clinics for all specialties, and a pediatric section for all sub-specialties.
The Ministry is sparing no effort to complete its operation soon. The complex includes, also, a maternity and childhood hospital, with a bed capacity of 400 beds, lying on an area of 75.000 square meters. The location has been delivered to the constructor, who has already embarked on implementation. The hospital includes a center for maternity and childhood.  Also, the complex includes an eye specialist hospital (200 beds), providing all the ophthalmology-associated specialist services. That's to be added to a dental specialist center (100 clinics), and a medical rehabilitative center. The complex, thus viewed, stands out as one of the largest medical complexes throughout the Kingdom.
