Morocco’s King Mohammed VI inaugurated on Friday the Mohammed VI University Hospital Center in Tangier, a new medical facility that will offer comprehensive healthcare services to the inhabitants of the Northern region, as well as advanced training to nurses, doctors, and pharmacists.
The new medical complex, which was built on a 23-hectare site located near the regional oncology center, the nurse training institute, and the school of Medicine & Pharmacy, has a 797-bed capacity and is equipped with state-of-the-art technologies in various medical fields.
With a total investment of over $238 million from Morocco and the Qatari Fund for Development, the new-generation healthcare facility will offer advanced services in pneumology, hematology, endocrinology, cardiology, neurology, nephrology, ophthalmology, and nuclear medicine, as well as intensive care, plastic surgery, and burns treatment services.
It also includes units for the treatment of sleep disorders, marrow transplants, obesity treatment, and cardiovascular rehabilitation.
During the inauguration ceremony, King Mohammed VI emphasized the importance of providing high-quality healthcare services to all Moroccans, regardless of their social and economic backgrounds.
He also stressed the need to develop a comprehensive strategy to improve the quality of healthcare services in the country and to promote medical research and innovation.
The Mohammed VI University Hospital Center is expected to play a key role in achieving these goals by providing advanced medical services to the Northern region, training medical professionals, and conducting cutting-edge medical research.
