Allen & Shariff is providing Project Management services on the new Sheikh Khalifa Medical City (SKMC).

SKMC will be an entire Medical City built on the campus of the existing Sheikh Khalifa Hospital. It will be comprised of three separate and distinct hospitals with a total bed count of 780 beds. A General Hospital, a Women’s Hospital and a Children’s Hospital will be the major components of this project.

The new Sheikh Khalifa Medical City balances the technical demands of a world-class medical center with the psychological well being of its visitors. The design allows for the flexible integration of next generation medical technologies, while the incorporation of amenities, such as trees and hanging gardens coupled with restaurants and retail, provides tranquility, relief and a sense of normalcy for patients and their families.
