The Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmad Hospital went through various challenges and phases; however, with the strong directives by His Highness the Amir and the tremendous efforts by all those who were involved in the construction, the dream was brought into reality, said the minister.

The main building of the hospital consists of five towering 10-stories structures built on a 220,000 square meters area, said the minister, adding that the total area in which the whole project was constructed on stretched around 725,000 square meters. Sheikh Dr Basel Al-Sabah said that the hospital bed capacity reached around 1,168 with 36 operation rooms, a medical center, a helipad, and a parking lot accommodating some 5,000 vehicles.

The opening of Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmad Hospital adds another milestone in the Kuwaiti leadership’s development vision, affirmed Sheikh Sabah who thanked His Highness the Amir for all his efforts. On his part, Health Minister Undersecretary Dr Mustafa Redha said that the hospital would add to the bed capacity of medical facilities in Kuwait to reach over 160,000.

The opening of the hospital is a step in the right direction, affirmed Dr Redha who noted the Sheikh Jaber Al- Ahmad Hospital was an integral part in the ministry’s plans to take medical care to the next level in Kuwait. After the conclusion of the speeches, a documentary depicting the different stages of construction was screened for the attendees.

His Highness the Amir and His Highness the Crown Prince received presents during the ceremony. The first phase of the Sheikh Jaber Al-Ahmad Hospital will be operational by the beginning of next week, said a top facility official Wednesday.

On the sidelines of the hospital’s opening, Executive Director of Sheikh Jaber A-Ahmad Hospital and head of Mubarak Al-Kabeer’s health district Dr Saud Al-Dar’a told KUNA that outpatient clinics and basic medical services such as radiology, laboratories, and nuclear medicine will be available to the masses next week. He revealed that the hospital – consisting of 1,168 beds, 36 operation theaters, and other important facilities – would be a valuable addition to the health service sector in Kuwait.
