Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (SEHA) has signed an agreement with Al-Fara'a General Contracting and Amanah Construction Company for the construction of two new hospitals in Abu Dhabi's Western Region.
The new hospitals, to be constructed in Sila and Ghayathi, are part of SEHA's strategy to improve the emirate's health care infrastructure and are designed to meet the needs of the expected rate of population growth during the coming years.
Abu Dhabi Western Region Ruler's Representative HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan said, "Abu Dhabi will realise these goals, by investing in a healthy environment and by equipping hospitals with the latest technologies and systems to keep pace with the development and progress of the emirates' health services."
Once completed, the hospital at Ghayathi will facilitate 50 beds and Sila will offer 40 beds.
Both the hospitals are expected to provide general medicine, obstetrics and gynecology services, and intensive care units for infants.
SEHA chairman and managing director Saif Bader Al Qubaisi said that the construction stages of the Sila and Ghayathi hospitals in the Western Region are expected to be completed by 2015.
"The hospital is uniquely designed to meet all the needs and aspirations of UAE residents, as well as providing the best global health services," Al-Qubaisi added.
"Both hospitals will be equipped with the latest amenities and technical equipment to ensure delivery of world-class health care to the people."
The existing Ghayathi and Sila hospitals will continue to provide all healthcare services until the new hospitals are complete.
