Saudi Arabia’s Ministry of Health will tender three maternity and children hospital projects under the Public-Private Partnership (PPP) model in the third quarter of this year.
The projects would be tendered in August 2023 under 20-year-plus Design-Build-Finance-Operate-Maintain (DBFOM) contracts, according to details shared by the National Centre for Privatisation & PPP (NCP). The hospital capacities weren’t specified.
The three projects are as follows:
- Al-Yamamah maternity and children hospital in Riyadh
- Al-Masadiyah maternity and children hospital in Jeddah
- Al-Ahsa maternity and children hospital in Ahsa
Earlier, NCP had approved 200 projects for privatisation and co-development with the private sector in 17 sectors to attract more local and foreign investments.
