The master plan of The Medical City in Salalah, Oman has been completed by Atkins.
This project, being undertaken by the Apex Medical Group, represents the largest private healthcare infrastructure development opportunity in Oman. The Medical City is poised to become the centerpiece of international healthcare tourism, whilst also benefitting the local community.
The 800,000sqm complex, with a built up area of 500,000 sq meters, will provide traditional hospital facilities along with a high end hotel, spa, educational and training facilities for doctors and nurses and a wellbeing centre, alongside accommodation, commercial and service facilities for visitors and residents.
The sustainability goals for The Medical City have been drawn from the ‘One Planet Living’ program, which is internationally recognized as a framework for addressing sustainability in development projects.
The ‘One Planet Living’ goals are to achieve or secure:
• Carbon reduction
• Waste reduction
• Sustainable transport
• Local and sustainable materials
