175 bed hospital is a gift from the UAE president to the people of Sharjah
The Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan Foundation (KBZF) has selected UK-based Sweett Group to provide project management services for the Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan Major Trauma Hospital in Sharjah.
The project is Sweett Group’s third major commission on behalf of KBZF, having already supported the organisation in the delivery of the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies in the UK and Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan Specialised Hospital in Casablanca, Morocco, currently under construction.
Sweett Group is to manage the design development process, construction, commissioning, delivery and handover. The company will also work with the operator to achieve an optimal clinical and nonclinical model with an expected commencement of construction on site in the second quarter of 2013.
The 175-bed hospital is a gift from the UAE President, HH Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, to the people of Sharjah and the Northern Emirates, and is the first of its kind in the emirate providing medical attention for trauma and subsequent rehabilitation cases within the region.
It comprises inpatient facilities including a dedicated 30-bed ICU, eight operating theatres, emergency department, rehabilitation department and a teaching centre.
