Jordan King Abdullah II inaugurates Aqaba hospital

Rome, September 2 - The newly established Prince Hashem bin Abdullah II Hospital, part of the Royal Medical Services in the Red Sea city of Aqaba, was inaugurated by Jordan's King Abdullah II and is fully operative, the hospital said on Monday. The 66.2-million-euro facility is equipped with the most modern medical equipment meant to improve the level of health services in Aqaba and the southern governorates. King Abdullah II, the supreme commander of the Jordan Armed Forces, unveiled a commemorative plaque on Sunday then toured the various sections of the hospital accompanied by chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, General Mashaal al Zaben and the director general of the royal medical services, Major General Dr Khalaf al Jader. The newly constructed hospital has a bed capacity of 212 and will provide medical and treatment services to the residents and visitors of Aqaba and the surrounding areas. The population and tourism in the burgeoning autonomous economic area know as ASEZA (Aqaba Special Economic Zone) are on the rise as developers continue to invest in infrastructure and entertainment. ASEZA, a liberalized, low-tax, duty-free area that has its sights on becoming a world-class hub for business and leisure, is easily accessible to the Middle East, Asia and Europe.
