Al Fouzan Trading and General Construciton Company (FTCO) has been selected by Bahrain’s Arabian Gulf University to build the multi million dollar King Abdulla Medical City under a 30 month contract in the kingdom.

A specialist in the execution of medical city projects, hospitals, universities and educational institutions, Al Fouzan has several big developments under its name in Saudi Arabia. These include the 500-bed King Abdullah Medical City in Makkah, King Saud Medical City in Riyadh; the 500-bed Prince Mohammad Bin Abdulaziz Hospital besides residential accommodation for Al Jouf University staff and the 400-bed Maternity and Children Hospital in Makkah.

The Saudi contractor will be officially signing the deal for The King Abdulla Medical City project within the next few days.

The mega development, being funded by a $1-billion grant from the late Saudi King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz Al Saud, will come up over a sprawling one-million square metre area near Askar which has been donated by His Majesty King Hamad.

The hitech medical city will consist of a 288-bed medical centre that is in compliance with the highest international standards and specifications in this field. It will also include a number of research and excellence centres, as well as a college of medicine, making it a comprehensive centre for medical education and medical services that would offer its services to patients from Bahrain and neighbouring GCC states.
