Residents Welcome Two New Medical Facilities to KAEC
Residents of King Abdullah Economic City (KAEC), the world’s largest privately funded city, are welcoming the addition of two new world-class medical facilities in partnership with Dr. Soliman Fakeeh Hospital (Fakeeh Care). The Family Medical Center (FMC) and the Medical Clinic will provide healthcare services to KAEC’s growing population. The medical facilities will also provide healthcare services to residents of Thuwal, Saabar, and Rabigh.
The first medical center in KAEC opened in 2010 before the Industrial Valley started on its current upswing of rapid growth.
As the number of companies investing in KAEC’s Industrial Valley continues to grow, so does the population, and with it, the need for access to reliable, ongoing, state-of-the-art healthcare services.
Located in the heart of KAEC in the prestigious Al Murooj community, the Family Medical Center will provide general medical care for its residents. Residents will also have access to specialized services not previously available to the majority of KAEC residents. Specialized services include ophthalmology, dentistry, obstetrics and gynecology, ENT, and orthopedics.
The Medical Clinic will service the needs of Industrial Valley residents, many of whom live and work in the industrial hub. In addition, the medical center on the campus of World Academy, KAEC’s first K-12 school, will continue to provide medical services for the community during school terms.
Citizens of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia who are familiar with Vision 2030 know it is an economic plan designed to eliminate KSA’s reliance on oil.
The plan includes a sophisticated strategy for strengthening Saudi Arabia’s economy by providing Saudis with a global education that prepares them to start and grow small and mid-sized businesses throughout the Kingdom.
Fulfilling the plan requires KAEC residents to be healthy and strong. Medical centers like FMC at KAEC will make sure that happens.
While FMC was created to meet the needs of the KAEC community, ultimately the goal of Vision 2030 is to ensure every citizen of the Kingdom has immediate access to quality healthcare services.
In addition to treating patients who come into the facilities with illnesses, FMC is zeroing in on building healthier communities within KAEC by launching Preventive Healthcare Programs, according to Mr. Mazen Tammar, Head of Corporate Business Development, Healthcare and Education in KAEC.
FMC is equipped with a testing laboratory and a dispensing pharmacy that gives KAEC residents access to a fully-equipped healthcare facility, befitting the rising quality of life KAEC residents are experiencing.
