Red Sea Global achieves milestone for Turtle Bay Hospital

Red Sea Global (RSG) is set to welcome 300,000 guests annually once the first phase of resorts is complete next year. Turtle Bay will be home to some 14,000 employees and their families, all of whom will benefit from easy access to quality healthcare and medical services, said a press release from the Saudi developer.

RSG is said to have made substantial progress on its Turtle Bay Hospital. The hospital located in The Red Sea’s Turtle Bay area will provide healthcare to the community of people living in, working at, and visiting waterfront.

The developer announced it received approval from the Ministry of Health (MOH) on the designs for the Turtle Bay Hospital, an achievement in allowing commence operations. It is the first project funded by the Public Investment Fund (PIF) to receive the MOH architectural approval and marks a milestone for the project, the statement noted.

“Securing this approval is a momentous occasion for our team who are working tirelessly to ensure that first-class healthcare is available at The Red Sea. Our vision for Turtle Bay Hospital to be a state-of-the-art facility is part of our broader ambitions to deliver a robust healthcare ecosystem for our growing project portfolio,” said Nicholas King, Group Chief Development Officer at Red Sea Global.

“The health and wellbeing of our guests and employees are our priority, and as we continue to champion Saudi capability, we are pleased to be working with several Saudi partners for the build, operations and supply of medical equipment. We eagerly anticipate the completion of Turtle Bay Hospital, which is set to open at the end of next year,” he added.

Abdullah Saeed Alsayed & Partners Contracting Company was awarded the construction contract for the new hospital and is set to mobilise onsite. The operator contract was awarded in early 2022 to Steward Alf Global Healthcare Company, a joint venture between Alf Healthcare, the health care arm of Saudi-based Alfanar, a developer and operator of large-scale PPP projects, and leading international healthcare provider Steward Health Care International.

The medical equipment contract for the hospital was also awarded earlier this year to Alf Healthcare. Once operational, the hospital will offer primary and secondary care including Diagnostics, Internal Medicine, Cardiology, Urology, Orthopaedic, Women’s Health, Emergency Care, amongst other services.

The Red Sea will be a dive destination and a hyperbaric chamber will also be operated as an integrated part of the facility’s Emergency Department, enabling primary treatment for diving incidents and barotrauma related injuries.

Upon full completion in 2030, The Red Sea will comprise 50 resorts, offering up to 8,000 hotel rooms and more than 1,000 residential properties across 22 islands and six inland sites. The destination will also include luxury marinas, golf courses, entertainment, F&B, and leisure facilities.
