King Faisal Specialist Hospital & Research Centre
Medina, Saudi Arabia
In September 2018, the General Organization of King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Centre (KFSH&RC) took the decision to transform the new Meikat Hospital project in Medina to a specialized hospital and making it part of the General Organization of KFSH&RC.
The project consists of a 300-bed main hospital with a number of other buildings connected with the project for housing and support services.
The project after its completion and operation will mark one of the most important additions in the specialized medical care in the Kingdom. The latest standards and methods of provision of service will be applied by integrating it with the system of the General Organization of KFSH&RC at its headquarter in Riyadh and its branch in Jeddah based on the hospital's long expertise of more than four decades in the field of medical care. The project will also make it possible to expand the specialized care services for the citizens. It is expected that the services would be made easily and quickly accessible by people. It would also lead to further improvements in the quality of health services both in preventive and therapeutic aspects in relation to the chronic and difficult diseases.
Since the new KFSH&RC's branch in Medina is out of the Haram Area (Holy Area), all Muslims and Non-Muslims would be considered to work here.
