Manama: A new state-of-the-art world-class cardiac centre will be built as part of major efforts to upgrade Bahrain's medical infrastructure.

His Royal Highness Prime Minister Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa will lay the foundation stone of the project on June 10.

The BD40.3 million Mohammed bin Khalifa Al Khalifa Specialist Cardiac Centre in Awali is expected to be completed in 32 months.

Sixteen million dinars have been allocated for hi-tech medical equipment for the seven-storey centre, in addition to furniture.

'Once operational, the facility will have 148 beds, up from 68 beds at the existing centre,' said Supreme Health Council president Lieutenant General Dr Shaikh Mohammed bin Abdulla Al Khalifa.

With opening of the planned facility and the tumour centre at King Hamad University Hospital, the ratio of beds will rise to 24 per 10,000 inhabitants, from 22 now.

The centre will include outpatient clinics, X-ray imaging, a pharmacy, physiotherapy and a sterilisation ward on the ground floor.

The second floor will include operating theatres, an intensive care unit and the lab.

Different wards for men, women and children will be located on the fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh floors, with plans to expand the centre in the future to include more sections.
