Rabat – King Mohammed VI inaugurated the new MAD 312 million ‘Prince Moulay Abdallah’ prefectural hospital in the Hssain district in Salé.
The 250-bed hospital, which may have a strong social impact, reflects the importance the sovereign places on the health sector, particularly through the development of hospital infrastructure.
The project also reflects the King’s conviction that the right of access to health care services is a major pillar to consolidate citizenship and achieve comprehensive, integrated, and sustainable human development.
The new hospital, which will serve a population of more than one million inhabitants, will complement similar structures in the Rabat-Salé-Kenitra region and will relieve congestion at the Ibn Sina University Hospital Center in Rabat.
Having a regional vocation, this hospital reflects the King’s willingness to enable all citizens to have access to quality health care services.
The health facility extends over 3.7 hectares and houses a medical-technical department, an emergency department, a blood bank, an outpatient hospital, gynecology-obstetrics wards, and a pediatrics ward. T
he hospital also contains departments for surgery, orthopedics, neurology, ophthalmology, nephrology and hemodialysis, in addition to administrative and technical offices.
Built by the Ministry of Health, the new hospital will be served by Line 2 of the Rabat-Salé Tramway, when the current extension project is completed.
