Red Sea Global starts work on Turtle Bay Hospital

JEDDAH, June 13, 2024

Red Sea Global (RSG), the developer behind regenerative tourism destinations The Red Sea and Amaala, has announced that work has begun on its new hospital project located in Red Sea’s Turtle Bay area following the project design approval by Ministry of Health.
The Turtle Bay Hospital, once completed, will provide world-class healthcare to the community of people living in, working at, and visiting the 1.5million sq m waterfront site.
The Red Sea destination is set to welcome approximately 300,000 guests annually once the first phase of resorts is complete next year. Moreover, Turtle Bay will eventually be home to some 14,000 employees and their families, all of whom will benefit from easy access to quality healthcare and medical services.
Today the developer announced it received approval from the Ministry of Health (MOH) on the designs for the Turtle Bay Hospital, an achievement essential in allowing this world-class facility to commence operations. 
It is the first project funded by the Public Investment Fund (PIF) to receive the MOH architectural approval and marks a substantial milestone for the project.
"Securing this approval is a momentous occasion for our team who are working tirelessly to ensure that first-class healthcare is available at The Red Sea. Our vision for Turtle Bay Hospital to be a state-of-the-art facility is part of our broader ambitions to deliver a robust healthcare ecosystem for our growing project portfolio," remarked
Nicholas King, Group Chief Development Officer at Red Sea Global.
“The health and wellbeing of our guests and employees are our priority, and as we continue to champion Saudi capability, we are pleased to be working with a number of Saudi partners for the build, operations and supply of medical equipment. We eagerly anticipate the completion of Turtle Bay Hospital, which is set to open at the end of next year,” he added.
Abdullah Saeed Alsayed & Partners Contracting Company was awarded the construction contract for the new hospital and is set to mobilize on site imminently. 
The operator contract was awarded in early 2022 to StewardAlf Global Healthcare Company, a joint venture between Alf Healthcare, the health care arm of Saudi-based Alfanar, a renowned developer and operator of large-scale PPP projects, and leading international healthcare provider Steward Health Care International.-TradeArabia News Service
