A ‘Village’ In Riyadh Shows How Saudi Healthcare Is Changing
Change is coming to Saudi Arabia’s healthcare sector, and the scale of that change is exemplified by Tatweer’s upcoming Medical Village in Riyadh. This private medical campus will feature seven hospital buildings and 33 stand-alone medical centers.
This first-of-a-kind medical campus also features an innovative business model led by private investment that will see GE Healthcare and Tatweer Medical Company partner to create a centralized Diagnostic Radiology Center that will serve the entire Medical Village.
GE Healthcare will provide turnkey consulting support to developing the center that will be equipped with the company’s advanced radiology solutions and digital equipment. The GE technologies aim to enable better patient outcomes through enhanced operational efficiency, accuracy and reliability.
The Diagnostic Radiology Center will provide high-quality diagnostics to Medical Village, and support other diagnostic clinics in Saudi Arabia, as well as across the Gulf region through advanced teleradiology services.
Set to open in 2020, Medical Village will help transform the Saudi healthcare sector and support the Kingdom’s National Transformation Program for the healthcare sector.
GE’s collaboration with Tatweer Medical is a testimony to the power of partnerships in enabling enhanced operational efficiency, accuracy and access to clinics and hospitals across Saudi Arabia in line with the Ministry of Health’s National Transformation Plan,” said Jalil Juha, President & CEO of GE Healthcare Saudi Arabia.”
“Enhancing diagnostic care is of crucial importance to achieving better patient outcomes,” Juha continued. “Our digital and advanced suite of technologies, and our turnkey support for the diagnostics center will potentially create a center of excellence in diagnostics services in the Kingdom.”
Medical Village will be an integrated master-planned community with residences, commercial centers, retail attractions, hotels and other entertainment choices.
