Rooted in resilience, the rise of a new vision for healthcare

Rugged and gnarled, Jordan’s national oak trees are adaptable, robust, and can live for centuries – a fitting symbol of resilience in this land of ancient civilizations. In the capital city of Amman, a site nestled in the midst of a protected reserve of these oaks will soon become home to a ground-breaking new healthcare facility that aims to transform the way care is delivered and taught.

Chronic diseases like asthma, cancer, diabetes, and heart disease are a growing burden in Jordan, and the healthcare system has also become increasingly overburdened by a growing population, in part tied to an influx of recent refugees. This growing population has significantly increased the strain on all services and infrastructure.

To address future healthcare challenges and reduce the need for acute hospital care, Dar, Perkins&Will and Currie & Brown are providing design, engineering, and construction supervision services for this exceptional new healthcare enterprise. Once built, it is expected to redefine the way that healthcare is delivered in Jordan and its surrounding region.

Delivering a new, flexible model for care and education

The vision is to create an innovative medical community that does things differently today while evolving to meet the needs of tomorrow. The Kingdom Health Campus will proudly integrate clinical, education, and research within one shared campus.

This integrated approach will enable the implementation of new models for care and, it is hoped, act as a magnet to skilled clinicians, scientists, and students from the region and around the world.

To design a campus that embodies this vision, the team collaborated closely to develop purpose-built structures that interconnect meaningfully and are strategically arranged around a welcoming and engaging plaza, creating space for a dynamic community.

The hospital itself will have 330 beds with 72 outpatient clinics, as well as a dedicated children’s hospital.

There are plans for five medical centers of excellence focused on providing essential expertise in cardiovascular diseases, hematology and oncology, neurosciences, gastroenterology, as well as orthopedics and movement.

Meanwhile, four scientific research centers in the fields of genomics and precision medicine, stem cells and advanced cellular therapy, bioinformatics, and public health and health systems will also drive advanced scientific research.

The focus on tertiary care with mental health facilities, cancer care, care of the elderly and women and children’s services are at the heart of the clinical model that prioritizes a patient-centered system to meet the changing needs of a rapidly changing society.

The Kingdom Health project is a $400 million investment by the Saudi Jordanian Investment Company (SJIC), a subsidiary of the Public Investment Fund of Saudi Arabia (PIF).

An investment to educate and inspire a future generation

The Kingdom Health campus will nurture the next generation of outstanding medical and clinical care leaders and professionals, with a total capacity of 600 students and an annual intake of around 100 students.

Furthermore, the master plan anticipates the future care needs of a growing and evolving population. It envisions a potential 50% expansion of the hospital and 400% for the university, ensuring that the region’s future healthcare needs can be accommodated and providing limitless possibilities for the future.
