Timeline from Sidra
See our article about a timeline of Sidra's developments.
Located in Education City — which is home to branch campuses of the Weill Cornell Medical College, Carnegie Mellon University, Georgetown University, and Texas A&M University — in the outskirts of Doha, Qatar, the Sidra Medical and Research Center will be the first academic medical center in the region based on the North American model.
Owned and funded — with a US$7.9 billion endowment — by the Qatar Foundation, the Sidra Medical and Research Center will open with approximately 400 beds. Later phases will see the hospital expand to 550 beds.
Doha, which is home to the majority of Qatar's population, is the site of the large hospitals, the international universities, the seat of government, and the international hotels, is growing at a frenetic pace. Located on the Persian Gulf, the 7 km walk beside the sea, provides a tour of the seaside park, as well as a view of the multiple fantastic buildings which are sprouting everywhere.
Qatar has a population of approximately 1.9 million, of which approximately 20% are nationals. The vast majority of the population resides in the capital, Doha.
A peninsula, Qatar will appeal to water lovers. Ambitious in the development of its educational and healthcare infrastructure, it has invited American, Canadian, and British institutions to set up programs.
Currently, it is undergoing a metamorphosis into a modern metropolis with dramatic looking hotels and public buildings. more
