Notre Dame University (NDU) has finalized the technical studies to open a hospital adjacent to its campus in Louaize.

Construction works will be launched in 2016 and are expected to be finalized within three years. Investment will reach $90 million, according to Souheil Matar, Vice President of NDU.

“There is a need for an additional 1,000 hospital beds in the Kesrouan region,” said Matar. He said that while building the hospital, the university will be applying for a license from the Ministry of Education and Higher Education to establish a faculty of medicine.

The 300-room hospital will be built on a 100,000 square meter land plot. It will provide all medical services and will include facilities such as operating rooms, dedicated centers for cancer and other diseases, an emergency unit, and a parking lot.
