The project will be carried out for a cost of MAD 67 million.
The project is in line with a campaign led by King Mohammed VI, who has been inaugurating several medical facilities throughout the holy month of Ramadan.
The project seeks to ensure the right of access to health services for all citizens and promote the health sector.
Initiated by the Mohammed V Foundation for Solidarity, the project seeks to serve a population of 300,000 people to reduce the pressure on existing hospitals in the region.
Maghreb Arab Press (MAP) reported that the project also aims to increase access for the area’s economically disadvantaged by providing closer medical centers to prevent them from taking long trips to receive care.
The new facility will be built in a space of 9,000 square meters. It will include a medical emergency room, screening rooms, and consultation rooms.
The center also will provide a medical technical center with two surgery rooms and a maternal health center.
Additionally, the facility will also house a primary health care unit for vaccination and maternal and child health in addition to a rehabilitation unit, a dental unit, and a medical analysis laboratory.
Finally, the center will include a pharmacy and a morgue.
King Mohammed VI has inaugurated several other projects throughout the month of Ramadan. The latest projects were an addiction treatment center in Benslimane, a city in the Casablanca Settat region, on Tuesday and the launch of a program to support self-employment for former prisoners last week.
