428-bed Al-Hammadi Hospital up in Riyadh
Published in The Saudi Gazette on 17 - 04 - 2014

RIYADH — Al-Hammadi Development and Investment Company, a closed joint-stock firm, announced on Wednesday the completion of Al-Hammadi Hospital here.
The 428-bed hospital is set to open in the third quarter of 2014 in Al-Suwaidi, a district in the south west of the capital's metropolitan area at a cost of over SR700 million.
The hospital will be the second after the opening of the landmark Al-Hammadi Hospital in April 1985 and will bring the total bed count to 728 beds.
“We're delighted to have reached this milestone today,” said Mohammed Bin Saleh Al Hammadi, CEO of Al Hammadi Development and Investment Company. “The construction, furnishing and installation of equipment have been fully completed as have the hospital's equipment rooms and wards. We've taken the care to ensure that only the best medical and technology systems have been chosen as we want to inaugurate a hospital that will raise the bar for quality healthcare in Saudi Arabia.”
Al Hammadi Al-Suwaidi Hospital is built on a 44,000-square-meter land on a total land area of 100,000 square meters. Consisting of eight floors in total — six floors above ground and two basement floors — the hospital complex also houses accommodation for the facility's medical staff.
The hospital itself will house over 300 patient suites as well as 100 beds designed specifically for children and young adults. The outpatient department will include 64 clinics for walk-in patients, while the surgery units will utilize 13 fully-equipped theaters.
In addition, the hospital will feature a number of specialized units, including a theater for cardiac catheterization, two rooms for performing upper and lower laparoscopic procedures and a theater for endoscopic treatment of renal lithiasis (kidney stones).
“The establishment of Al Hammadi Al-Suwaidi Hospital is a natural expansion for Al Hammadi Hospitals,” added Al Hammadi. “We were pioneers when we opened up our first hospital in 1985 and we brought to the Kingdom a quality and range of services that were absent at the time. With this new facility we aim to do the same, to provide a range of top-quality services and therapies that will cater to a growing population which needs convenient access to the best medical services which are suited to the most common and prevalent medical conditions in the country today.”
“We've chosen Al-Suwaidi, in the southwest of Riyadh, as the site for this new hospital for a number of reasons. We believe that this area, whose population has rapidly grown to exceed a million people, is underserved in terms of modern medical services and facilities. It made sense to place the hospital within easy reach of the residents for their convenience.
Our hospital will be the first modern, fully integrated medical facility of its kind in Al-Suwaidi, and with our three decades of experience in managing hospitals, we will ensure that the residents of Al-Suwaidi will have access to medical advice and support that is comparable to world-class hospitals outside of Saudi Arabia.”
The Al Hammadi Al-Suwaidi hospital will be staffed by over 1,500 doctors, nurses and medical specialists who will provide in-patient, ambulatory and preventative care to the city's residents. The hospital is also equipped with state-of-the-art technology to increase quality of care while transforming the experience of patients, their families and medical staff.
With a history that dates back thirty years, the Al Hammadi Development and Investment Company is one of the leaders in healthcare provision. When its first hospital, the Al Hammadi hospital, opened in the Olaya district of Riyadh in 1985 the company transformed the concept of healthcare in the country.
Today, the Al-Hammadi Development and Investment Company is a pioneer in the management and operation of medical facilities. The company has received numerous certifications from leading health care bodies both at home and abroad including from Saudi Arabia's Central Board of Accreditation for Healthcare Institutions (CBAHI), Accreditation Canada, the US-based Joint Commission International and the Australian Council on Healthcare Standards International. The Al Hammadi Development and Investment Company has worked with both the British Safety Council International and the International Organization for Standardization to achieve health and safety certification for its facilities. — SG
