Kingdom of Saudi Arabia | Riyadh & Jeddah , Saudi Arabia

Osborn Engineering is providing Joint Commission Review & Consultation (MEP, Technology, Fire Protection and Medical Gas) for two new “Medical Cities” for the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. These are known as Security Forces Medical Center (SFMC) and are located in Riyadh and Jeddah in the Kingdom.  Osborn provided design and peer review, code analysis and medical planning support amongst other services. Osborn’s role on the design team is to ensure that the hospitals both attain Joint Commission International Accreditation and comply with FGI-2014, international building code and NFPA Standards.

The Ministry of Interior (MOI) of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, has embarked on the SFMC Project. The goal of the MOI in this project is to provide the Kingdom with medical facilities to rival the finest facilities found in the United States.  Each medical city will consist of advanced medical facilities, utility areas and support facilities for technical maintenance, central main mosque, residential areas with villas, single and family apartments, a recreational sporting complex, commercial buildings, six helipads, separate staff/visitor parking areas, and allied health/nursing school.

Each hospital’s total built-up area is approximately 5,600,000 SF and is composed of three different sections: main hospital, women and children’s hospital, and a psychiatric hospital (Hospital of Hope). Each hospital will house specialized centers of healthcare excellence: Gynecology & Obstetrics, Labor & Delivery, Pediatrics, Cardiology & Heart Surgery, Oncology, Neurology & Neurosurgery, Endocrinology, Gastroenterology & GI Surgery, Pulmonology & Lung Surgery, Psychiatry, Urology, Orthopedics & Rehabilitation, providing high-quality services.

The total number of beds will be over 1,500 per site. In addition to general operating rooms, the hospital will have multiple hybrid ORs with PET/CT, MRI, Biplane Angiography System and Robotic Arm configurations, as well as many specialized procedure-specific spaces to cover every pathologic field of human diseases. Finally, each main hospital will harbor highly automated central laboratory facilities, multiple compounding pharmacies (all designed to USP 795, 797, and 800 standards), nuclear medicine and simulation labs.
