The hospital will have 350 beds after the first phase of development is completed. The hospital’s inaugural phase was launched by a team from the Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan Foundation.
The public hospital plans were overseen by Sheik Mansour bin Zayed, Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Presidential Affairs, and Chairman of the Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan Foundation. These initiatives are part of the UAE’s humanitarian efforts to support Yemen’s underfunded health system and improve Yemeni lives.
With 17 districts, Shabwah is Yemen’s third-largest province or governorate. The opening was attended by Shabwa Governor Awadh Al Awlaqi and other prominent figures. The hospital’s goal, according to a foundation spokesman, is to improve healthcare services in the province and provide access to high-quality care. It will contain 350 beds in total, with 100 beds in phase one and 250 beds in phase two.
