The 595,000m2 facility will provide a full range of clinical services, tertiary care, and wellness programmes within a consolidated paediatric care model. As a national and regional centre of excellence, it will also have state-of-the-art facilities for specialised medical research and teaching.
Situated on the coastline, within the Al Sabah Speciality Medical Area in Al Shuwaikh, the hospital’s distinctive design concept is based on crystalline forms. The main entrance is via a five-storey high, 457m-long, climate-controlled atrium. This area will combine a blend of civic, hospitality and retail services, including play areas with a ‘sea adventure’ theme.
