According to American Mission Hospital (AMH), 40% of the work on its eco-friendly solar power-run private hospital in Bahrain is now complete.
The state-of-the-art BD25 million King Hamad American Mission Hospital in A’ali is expected to be commissioned in November next year.
AMH corporate chief executive Dr. George Cheriyan said the work on the project is “progressing steadily”.
“The structure of the hospital is complete and work has moved into the interiors which is complex with the kind of infrastructure that is going into it,” he said.
The hospital will become the first one to introduce robots with a hybrid operation system on a large scale.
Around 3,000 solar panels will be installed on the hospital’s roof, and it is expected to generate 1MW of power to run the multi-specialty facility.
Dr. Cheriyan said connection with international healthcare facilities would help the hospital in raising its status, whilst also adding value to the nation’s healthcare sector in general.
This facility is designed and developed on futuristic digitalized platforms which aim at linking patients with the hospital 24×7 if needed.
“We are talking of real-time delivery of healthcare.” The hospital complex will be built in two phases next to Ramli Mall.
The first phase consists of a maternity and children’s hospital and the second a 100-bed multi-specialty hospital.
Covering nearly 30,000sqm, it will include single-room intensive care units, an imaging centre, infertility centre, 300-seat auditorium for meetings and conferences, a special needs children’s development assessment and treatment centre, and 400 parking slots.
Also, the hospital will be the first private facility of healthcare to have training and research in it in the field.
