Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (SEHA) has selected Hill International as project manager for the construction of new hospitals in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
As part of a two-year, AED17.4m ($4.8m) deal, the US-based construction consulting firm will provide project management services for two new community hospitals.
The 431,000ft² Ghayathy Community Hospital will include 50 beds while Silaa Community Hospital, with an area of 280,000ft², will consist of 36 beds.
The two hospitals have a combined estimated project value of approximately AED784m ($213m), according to Hill International.
Hill's Project Management Group (International) president Raouf S. Ghali said improving and expanding healthcare facilities in Abu Dhabi is a top priority for SEHA.
"Hill is honoured to have been selected to help build these important facilities," Ghali added.
Launched in 2007, SEHA is an independent, public joint-stock company created to manage and develop the curative activities of the public hospitals and clinics of the UAE.
