This area includes a total of approximately 36,223 sq m of clinical/medical space, which houses the 75 clinical examination rooms and 220 no. beds which are provided in private and semi-private rooms. The hospital is also designed to cater for VIP’s and Royalty, where the uppermost floor is directly accessed through separate private entrances and lobbies on the ground floor.
