Aqaba, August 5 - The newly established the Prince Hashem Bin Abdullah II Hospital in Aqaba said on Monday that the first week of operations went smoothly at the recently inaugurated medical structure. The 36,000-square-metre hospital, which has the total capacity of 238 beds, includes all specializations offered by Royal Medical Services hospitals. Located in the northern part of the city of Aqaba, in the Special Economic Zone Authority (ASEZA), Prince Hashim bin Abdullah II Hospital will be an "icon of health and wellness in the region," experts said. The site area is approximately 150,000 square meters situated at the tip of the Red Sea. The diagnostic and treatment, and outpatient facilities cover over 15 medical disciplines including surgery, dialysis, a dental clinic, obstetrics, pediatrics, a burn unit, cardiac care, an emergency room and much more. They are supported with a complete set of service buildings and technical support facilities which include a dedicated central plant, water tank, medical gas building and engineering workshops. The project is part of a comprehensive regional economic development plan to provide new levels of health care for Jordanian citizens. The hospital is designed in a circular plan with the main hospital at the centre. The diagnosis and treatment block is centrally located, nestled in the central element dubbed the spine of the structure. The spine sweeps between the inpatient and treatment blocks to create a fluid circulation for visitors and staff, and sets the backdrop for the inpatient rooms. The patient rooms have a soothing view of the Red Sea, enhancing healing and well-being of the inpatients, experts said. The blend of rectilinear local sandstone facades and soft aluminum curves creates a modern hospital, incorporating the traditional, the cultural, and the environmentally sensible into a single cohesive architectural statement. This project is seen as displaying the vision of Jordan's continued commitment to provide the highest standard of healthcare and facilities in the region. As a gateway building to the entry of Aqaba, the Prince Hashim bin Abdullah II Hospital will serve as the gateway to the future of healthcare in Jordan and beyond.
