New coronavirus hospital in Madinah named after late Saudi nurse Nujood
Published in The Saudi Gazette on 09 - 07 - 2020

MADINAH — A newly built 100-bed integrated mobile hospital to treat coronavirus patients has been named after late Saudi female nurse Nujood Al-Khaibari in appreciation of her distinguished services.
Al-Khaibari died recently after contracting the coronavirus infection while working in one of the hospitals in Madinah.
Launched on Wednesday by Emir of Madinah Prince Faisal Bin Salman, the Nujood Medical Center has been built within 59 days with the support of energy and desalinated water provider ACWA Power and THABAT.
Equipped with the medical supplies needed to treat coronavirus cases, the new medical center will be fully dedicated to caring for COVID-19 patients.
Commenting on the launch, Health Minister Dr. Tawfiq Al-Rabiah said in a tweet: "Today, the Governor of Madinah launched an integrated hospital with a capacity of 100 beds that was built in 59 days with the support of Energy Minister Prince Abdulaziz Bin Salman and a donation from ACWA Power to provide better services."
"It has been named the Nujood Medical Center after the late nurse Nujood Al-Khaibari, may God have mercy on her, in appreciation of what she did to serve patients and in gratitude for the efforts of health practitioners," the health minister added.
Nujood's sad demise caused an outpouring of national grief with Princess Reema Bint Bandar, Saudi Arabia's ambassador to the United States, joining scores of mourners in the Kingdom and outside in bidding a tearful adieu to the late nurse.
"We mourn Nujood's loss and remember her brave sacrifice; healthcare heroes are battling the global#Covid19 pandemic. Rest in peace #Nurse Nujood AlKhaibari," Princess Reema had said in her tweet.
Nujood, one of the brave health heroes, was working in the health sector of Madinah, died at the age of 45. She is survived by three daughters and a son. After graduating in nursing, Nujood worked tirelessly for 15 years, translating the spirit of dedication and commitment in all senses of the word in her profession.
