 EGP 25 Billion Medical City to Be Built in New Administrative Capital

The Ministry of Health and Population has announced plans to establish Egypt’s biggest medical complex in the New Administrative Capital (NAC), at a cost of EGP 25 billion. Over an area of 230 acres, the medical complex will provide services across various medical specialties, with a particular emphasis on chronic illnesses such as diabetes, liver disease and heart disease.

The new facility will be located on Ain Sokhna Road, encompassing 18 specialised medical institutes with a capacity of 4,200 beds, in addition to research centres, laboratories, a blood bank, and an integrated residential city for doctors and patients, aiming to attract medical tourism.

The establishment of the new city takes advantage of the large spaces still available in the NAC, allowing a combination of many facilities within one site, streamlining the provision of healthcare without the need for patient or doctor transfer. The area will also become a hub for medical education and training, teaching new doctors and nurses whilst keeping existing doctors up to speed with new medical knowledge.
