Bahrain plans new specialist hospital
Manama, March 11, 2012
A new specialist hospital is to be built in a new medical zone in Bahrain, just over a month after the area was designated as a healthcare district.
The eight-storey general hospital has been given the go-ahead by the Central Municipal Council, despite concerns from area councillor Ahmed Al Ansari that patients and staff could spy on its neighbours.
Authorities gave the green light in January for a land in Buhair, near Isa Town, to be earmarked only for private healthcare facilities.
It will house specialist hospitals and clinics, as well as support facilities such as hotels catering to medical tourism, on land next to the Estiqlal Highway. – TradeArabia News Service
