New hospital opens in Akkar
To provide healthcare for the needy
Construction works will start on Al Najda Al Chaabieh hospital in Halba, Akkar in early 2015. It will provide general medical services including surgeries.
The hospital is owned by a nonprofit organization, by the same name, based in Akkar. George El Dahr, Chairman of the Association, said: “There is a large need for quality low-cost medical services in this region; the hospital will target mainly needy patients.”
The cost of construction is expected to reach $10 million, to be funded by international donations.
The hospital’s total built-up area is 8,500 square meters, comprising seven floors and 100 beds.
The hospital will complement the association, which is a center for primary medical services.
Al Najda Al Chaabieh has already obtained license by the Ministry of Public Health.
