Aldara Hospital and Medical Centre

The concept for the new Aldara Hospital and Medical Center is based on market research which shows that new technologies and advances in medical practice means that preventative medicine and treatments for most acute illnesses is best provided on an outpatient basis. Located in Riyadh, the bustling capital of Saudi Arabia, the Aldara Hospital will house a 106-bed hospital and the largest outpatient center in Riyadh. 70% of the services will be ambulatory and the hospital will offer all services, with the exception of dentistry.

Aldara, which is scheduled to open in summer 2017, is a partnership between Saudi Investors and the well-known Henry Ford Health System (which operates 2000+ beds, across six tertiary-care facilities in Detroit, Michigan, USA). The Aldara hospital is modelled on the Henry Ford Bloomfield hospital site, a 200-bed acute care facility which offers a collaborative approach to health and wellness.

The hospital will house:

• 68 Clinics (with 192 examination rooms)
• 8 Operating Theatres
• 15 procedures rooms
• A 41-bed ER (including 2 resuscitation rooms; 6 triage rooms; 8 overnight rooms)
• Cath Lab (projected to open in year 2)

Staff

The staff at Aldara Hospital and Medical Center will be recruited locally and internationally, including from the United States, Canada, and Europe. They will work alongside rotating physicians from Henry Ford Health System, who will collaborate with Aldara’s medical team on clinical activities, training, and research.
