US-headquartered consultant Hill International has won a contract from Health Assurance Hospitals Company (Dhaman) to provide project and construction management services for two new hospitals in Kuwait.
The three-year contract has an estimated value to Hill of approximately $13.1m.
The projects entail the construction of two 300-bed secondary care hospitals, staff accommodation buildings and parking facilities. The hospitals will be located in Al Ahmadi and Al Jahra.
Health Assurance Hospitals Company (Dhaman) was established as a public-private partnership as part of the State of Kuwait’s National Healthcare Expansion Plan. Â
In response to a projected population growth of two million people by 2026, Dhaman plans to build secondary care hospitals and primary health clinics in various locations across Kuwait.
"We look forward to helping Dhaman deliver these important hospital projects," said Mohammed Al Rais, Regional President (Middle East) for Hill’s Project Management Group. Â
"We understand the importance of timely delivery for these types of healthcare facilities and we are confident that our team will meet or exceed all expectations," added Al Rais.
