Khoula Hospital in Muscat, Oman, has announced it will open a new accident and emergency department and burns department in mid-2012.

The project began in April 2010 and is expected to be completed in July 2012.

The 10,000m2 facility, the newest addition to the nucleus of accident and trauma care in the Sultanate, is part of the RO100m healthcare projects announced by the government.

The new facility will feature a resuscitation hall and separate male and female treatment areas equipped with state-of-the-art life-saving facilities. It will also include a specialist ophthalmology centre, ultrasound facility, pharmacy, laboratory and operating theatre.

The high-dependency and burns department will accommodate eight people. In addition, there will be 11 single rooms and 12 double rooms with life-saving facilities and stand-alone intercom systems, plus three burns baths.

A solar water heating system that will be installed by the hospital will enable energy conservation.

The three-floor project was started with an initial budget of RO9.79m for the Ministry of Health (MoH) by Galfar Engineering and Contracting Company in consultation with Khatib and Alami and Partners, reports the Oman Observer.
