In-patient services, such as hospitalisation, the operating theatre, the intensive care unit, special examinations and permanent care for adults will begin operations during the second phase, which will take place by the end of this year.
The hospital will have ten operating rooms, including a robotic operating theatre, 213 general inpatient beds, 14 intensive care beds and 178 consultation and examination offices.
