The 52,000m² University Medical Center will form a new academic medical care campus.

The contract includes construction of 424-bed inpatient hospital towers, an adjoining 70,000m² diagnostic and treatment centre, and 150,000m² of associated site work, which includes utility and infrastructure installation, lighting, roads and parking.

Construction work on the site has already started, and the hospital is scheduled to open in February 2015.
