Riaydh, July 31, 2008

Saudi Arabia's King Faisal Specialist Hospital has signed a one-year contract with an architectural firm to design the SR96 million ($25 million) King Abdullah Oncology and Liver Center.

The firm will prepare designs for four projects which will be tendered for public bidding, said a Saudi Gazette report quoting Dr Qassim Al-Qassabi, executive supervisor general of King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Center.

The oncology center is expected to be constructed over an area of 72,000 sq m and will have 300 beds to meet the growing number of patients suffering from cancer and hepatitis.

The center will have 10 operation theaters, a kidney dialysis unit, an ICU for adults and a separate ICU with 10 beds for children.
