Sharjah, UAE; May 22, 2018: Sharjah Healthcare City Authority (SHCC) in a press briefing today announced that Abu Dhabi based Ahalia Group has been awarded the permission to set up a US$100 million, 120 bed hospital. This multi-specialty hospital spread across 50,000 square meters  is the very first hospital to set its footprint within the mega healthcare city.  Ahalia Group had signed an MoU last year with SHCC, and that has as enabled both the entities to move forward with this major announcement. The hospital will be built in Al Rahmania side of the healthcare city.

 

Furthermore, based on the ambitious growth plans and global investor interest in the project, SHCC’s master development will now double its area to 4.8 million square meters from the previously stated 2.4 million square meters to accommodate several global hospitals and other related organisations.

 

H.E. Abdulla Ali Al Mahyan, Chairman of Sharjah Health Authority and SHCC said “We are delighted to open doors to Ahalia Group and we are proud of the fact, that the brand has originated out of the the UAE.  Futhermore, I am happy to announce that the Sharjah Healthcare City plans have nearly doubled, ensuring that we are able to provide people with the best possible medical treatment that technology has to offer. Coinciding with our vision to ensure that every resident of this Emirate and the nation has access to immediate and reliable healthcare solutions. The extended healthcare city will now provide state-of-the-art medical services to rival those found anywhere in the world and position the Emirate as one of the top medical tourism destinations.”

 

Dr.V.S Gopal, Managing Director of Ahalia Group of Hospitals, “From everyone here at Ahalia Group of Hospitals, we wish to express our gratitude to the Sharjah Health Authority and the Sharjah Healthcare City Authority for the speedy approvals that has helped in the establishment for the first hospital here in Sharjah Healthcare City.
