Kuwait's New Medical City Opened


Fraser Clarke

Kuwait’s enormous new Jahra Medical City has officially been opened - just three years after work started on the build.

The new development includes six 724,000m2 buildings, more than 1,200 hospital beds and a range of other facilities that look set to change the face of medical care in Kuwait for ever.

At the heart of the development is an Obstetrics and Gynaecology centre which has become the largest focused on the speciality in the country. A vast new Accident and Emergency centre has also been opened, featuring a helipad for any serious issues.

The development is not just home to inpatient facilities either, with state-of-the-art laboratories and no fewer than four robotic pharmacies also built in.

In an attempt to become a centre of healthcare, the development also boasts 115 dentistry clinics - all equipped to the highest Western standards.

As one of the biggest medical developments in recent times it should come as little surprise that the medical city is home to the world’s second largest hyperbaric medicine unit, and the second biggest patient transport service facility on the planet.

Kuwait may not be as popular as it once was, however the small number of job opportunities that do arise remain highly sought after.
