Company description

Sidra Medical and Research Center will be an ultra modern, all-digital academic medical center which is being designed and planned to the best international standards in sciences. It will offer specialty care for women and children.

Products and services

It will encompass three essential missions:

World-Class Patient Care
Medical Education
Biomedical Research

Part of a collaborative effort entitled ‘one program in multiple institutions,’ Sidra will work closely with Weill Cornell Medical College in Qatar and Hamad Medical Corporation in regard to all three missions, raising the standard of health care throughout the country and providing valuable opportunities for research and learning.

First announced in June 2004, Sidra represents the vision of His Highness the Emir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al-Thani and Her Highness Sheikha Moza bint Nasser. The high tech facility will not only provide world class patient care but will help build Qatar’s scientific expertise and resources. Sidra will be funded by a US$7.9 billion endowment from Qatar Foundation, the largest endowment of a medical and research center anywhere in the world.

Located in Doha on Qatar Foundation’s 2,500 acre Education City campus, Sidra Medical and Research Center is expected to open at the end of 2012. It will initially have 388 beds with infrastructure to enable expansion to 550 beds in a subsequent phase.
