ABHA l U/C l King Faisal Medical City









King Faisal Medical City is a part of King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia's vision to create world-class healthcare centers throughout the kingdom. The project consists of 1,350 beds in a general hospital and five specialty hospitals (cardiology, neurology, oncology, rehabilitation and ophthalmology), as well as retail outlets, a hotel, a mosque and housing. It is designed to de-institutionalize healthcare through patient and family-centric healthcare delivery and through the integration of the built and natural environment.

The architecture and design of the entire campus is based on Islamic geometry, and specifically, on the eight-sided star derived from a square; a motif from the Abha region of the Kingdom. Organized around a central landscaped plaza atop a below-grade parking structure, the components of the new medical city will create a coherent hierarchy of space and circulation. Every aspect of the design was influenced by evidence-based design to create healing environments, and the latest technology is interwoven throughout the campus, including infrastructure for telemedicine.
