This will fund the construction of 27 new hospitals and health facilities in addition to 117 hospitals and eight medical cities already underway. On this backdrop, Saudi Health 2015 will be a perfect platform for professionals from the local healthcare industry to network with international corporations to get deeper insights on new healthcare trends and innovative medical technologies.”
Aside from a display of medical equipment and technology, Saudi Health 2015 will host a series of Continuing Medical Education (CME) accredited conferences which will contribute to the further development of the country’s healthcare sector. The workshops and conferences will enable participants to exchange knowledge, share best practices, and network with peers and experts.
