Five new hospitals totalling €2bn investment tendered in Kuwait

Kuwait has unveiled the intention to construct €2bn of new hospitals over the next few years. The Assistant Undersecretary for Sector of Construction Projects in Kuwait, Husam Al-Tahous announced the decision to construct five new buildings to support Kuwait’s healthcare needs in a detailed presentation in which he stated that tenders for the hospitals would be released this summer. See WAN Business Information for more details.

Plans are for Kuwait to offer 22 beds per 10,000 citizens by 2030 based on a population of 2.44million and an average annual growth of 2.93%. The five new healthcare facilities will be Al-Hajraa, Maternity, Al-Razi, Ibn Sina and Children’s Hospital, serving a growing demand for healthcare in Kuwait. One of the buildings - in Jahra district - will need to provide 1,000 beds but the selected plot will only cater for 800. There are therefore reports that officials are entertaining the idea of an additional project of larger capacity.
