Medical Infrastructure in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia

Infrastructure and Medical care in the KSA have improved over the last many years.

One representative hospital is 

King Faisal Specialist Hospital & Research Centre, Riyadh

The King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Center (KFSH&RC) is a modern state-of-the-art 1000+ bed (inclusive of 170 day beds) academic medical facility located in Riyadh, the capital city of Saudi Arabia.

KFSH&RC is the national referral center for Oncology, Organ Transplantation, Cardiovascular Diseases, Neurosciences, and Genetic Diseases. A full range of tertiary, secondary and primary health care services are provided. The hospital's postgraduate education programs support both Residency and Fellowship training. The Research Centre focuses on basic and translational research primarily in cancer, cardiovascular diseases, transplant immunology, genetics, molecular diagnostics and proteomics.

In the Middle East, the KFSHRC has been a pioneer in kidney and bone marrow transplantation, oncology, IVF, and orthopedic and cardiovascular surgery.

The hospital performs over 2,000 open-hearts and 6,500 cardiac catheterizations per year. It offers chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and bone marrow transplant, treating over 2,800 new adult patients per year. Pediatric oncology/hematology patients are treated at a 40 bed, state-of-the-art facility, the King Fahad National Centre for Children's Cancer and Research that opened in 1997.

Some transplant statistics (varying years, depending on availability):
* heart transplants: 35 in 2017 (28 on adults and 7 on children)
* heart/lung transplant: 1 on 17-year-old (to date, as of June 2018)
* lung transplants: 100 on patients aged 13-65 (to date, as of Sep 2016)
* liver transplants: 131 liver transplants in 2016
* kidney transplants: 208 in 2017 (168 on adults, 40 on children between aged 2 and 17; 174 living donor, 34 deceased donor)
* pancreas transplants: 16 in 2017
* BMTs: 233 in 2015 (56% on adults, 44% on children)
* Stem Cell transplants: 310 in 2017 (180 on adults, 210 on children)

Housing for single women is on the hospital site, and for single men, is near the hospital.

Housing is located within walking distance of a large modern supermarket, two pharmacies, McDonald's, Domino's Pizza, Body Shop, Benetton, and other shopping opportunities.

Housing for families is located either on the hospital campus, or up to 20 minutes drive away.

The KFSHRC has a number of recreational facilities open to staff, including swimming pools, tennis courts, a bowling alley and amenities centre. In addition, the Employee Social Club & Recreation Services offer a number of recreational courses, exercise programs and trips and a variety of other benefits to the employees.

New Developments
The new King Abdullah Centre for Cancer and Liver Diseases (KACCLD) opened in October 2017.

There is a real need for increased oncology services. The number of new cancer cases in Saudi Arabia has increased by more than 25% in the past 15 years, and is expected to rise considerably in the future. At 15% of the total number of cancers, breast cancer is the most common, followed by colorectal cancer at 10.4%.

And the new EMS Building opened in January 2018. It will ultimately have 100+ beds in three sections (adults, pediatrics, clinical decision/holding). As of June 2018, there are 53 beds open: 29 clinical decision/holding beds, 12 adult beds, 12 pediatric beds.

Some Statistics:
Nursing Staff: In June 2018, Nursing Recruitment reported that 27% of Nursing Staff are from the West (e.g., USA, Canada, Ireland, UK, New Zealand, Australia, etc.).

Medical Staff: Per statistics from August 2012, including Saudi Residents and Fellows, there are 703 medical staff, of whom 46% are expatriates (including 16% US/Canadian and 11% European) and 54% are Saudis.
