Rome, September 3 - 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 Tuesday.
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.
"A hospital of this quality will not only serve to enrich
the area for tourists and residents, it will attract investors
by further strengthening Aqaba's offerings and infrastructure,"
Aqaba Special Economic Zone (ASEZA) Chief Commissioner Kamel
Mahadin said.
"This health center is thanks to King Abdullah's vision and
awareness of the need for a top-standard hospital
to serve international visitors and local residents alike,"
Mahadin said.
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 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.
