King’s College Hospital Jeddah, which will open in 2023, will offer treatment to locals and medical travellers. It will have four centres of excellence: women’s health, metabolic diseases and bariatric surgery, orthopaedics, and heart and vascular.
Saudi Arabia’s Jeddah is set to become home to a 150-bed multi-speciality hospital, fully integrated with King’s College Hospital’s facilities in London.
Building on the success of King’s College Hospital Dubai, Ashmore Investment Saudi Arabia, a specialist emerging markets investment manager, in partnership with King’s College Hospital London and Saudi Bugshan Group, has announced the start of construction of King’s College Hospital Jeddah.
The hospital is scheduled to open its doors to patients in the second half of 2023, and this is expected to be the first of many similar projects providing Ashmore and King’s the platform for further growth in KSA.
King’s College Hospital Jeddah will cover an area of 32,000 sq. m, with a capacity of 150 beds in the first phase.
Clinical innovation and smart technologies will be a prominent feature at the hospital, with 40 medical and surgical specialties and four centres of excellence: women’s health, metabolic diseases and bariatric surgery, orthopaedics, and heart and vascular. The patient-centred care model, staffing and services will all be fully integrated with King’s College Hospital London, designed to address a range of complex and critical care requirements.
Ashmore expects to follow this with the establishment of similar King’s branded facilities, including specialised centres, in other parts of the kingdom.
The new hospital will mean that many patients in Saudi Arabia will be treated locally rather than travelling to London, but patients will be able to travel to London or Dubai if needed.
King’s College Hospital is a National Health Service hospital that also accepts private patients.
King’s College Hospital Commercial Services recently also signed a 10 year service and collaboration agreement with King Fahad Medical City Hospital (KFMC) in Saudi Arabia. The agreement includes a contract to provide nurse education and training.
