Medical Cities Healthcare Initiative Peer Review
The Ministry of Interior selected WorldCare International, Inc. (WorldCare) to provide an in-depth peer review of the two cornerstone hospitals of the Medical Cities Healthcare Initiative in Riyadh and Jeddah. With the understanding that the hospitals would need to have the capacity to address the current advance health services needs for people in the region while also being able to fulfill future needs.
Initially, WorldCare provided an exhaustive review of existing architectural plans and identified areas of improvement. WorldCare expanded upon this initial review to provide evidence-based, industry-supported solutions with clearly defined cost, service and timeline parameters.
Integrated, multi-disciplinary teams of high-caliber, industry-known and respected professionals from WorldCare and the Ministry of Interior collaborated during working sessions designed to address each and every aspect of the project. The team members spanned the medical, design, operations, engineering, IT, equipment and technology industries. The sessions brought together an unparalleled level of expertise ensuring delivery of an end-result that surpassed initial expectations.
On multiple occasions teams from the United States traveled to Saudi Arabia to orchestrate and participate in the working sessions. In turn, teams from Saudi Arabia traveled to the United States to continue the process. The interactive, day-long, multiple-day sessions fostered an entrepreneurial environment and opened up new project needs and areas of improvement that WorldCare addressed in their final recommendations and reports.
