Hill International, a global leader in managing construction risk, said it has secured a contract from Cairo University to provide project management services for the Kasr Al Ainy Hospitals Development project located in the Egyptian capital.
Under the contract, Hill International will offer project management services during the design, procurement, and execution phases of the project.
The Kasr Al-Ainy Hospital, located in downtown Cairo in the University’s Faculty of Medicine campus, currently has 3,200 beds.
The detailed of the project will include the renovation of all the existing Kasr Al-Ainy hospital buildings and facilities. It will also involve the construction of any additional facility buildings if the need arises.
On the contract win, Hill Senior VP (North Africa) Waleed Abdel Fattah said: “Kasr Al Ainy is a landmark facility that traces its roots back to 1827. This legacy of healing continues today, and this project will enable the hospital’s professionals to better serve their patients through dramatically improved efficiencies and expanded, customized facilities.”
“Our team will bring Hill’s healthcare best practices from the region and around the world to help ensure the vision for Kasr Al-Ainy is realized safely, on time, and within budget,” he added.
Hill CEO Raouf Ghali dubbed Kasr Al Ainy as the latest evidence of the strength of healthcare in Egypt specifically and of Egyptian economy in general.
“Our company continues to see mega-projects in healthcare and other sectors break ground after long periods of negotiation and coordination among various stakeholders. I expect similar progress on other healthcare projects across Mena region to continue for the foreseeable future,” he stated.
