The MBF Group has agreed to establish an integrated medical city within the 100,000-square metre Gulberg Greens in the Pakistani capital of Islamabad according to state news agency Wam.

The agreement with Ibchez Housing and Nixon will include the construction of a hospital providing medical services at international standards.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Faisal Al Qassimi, Founder and Owner of the MBF Group, said that the project will include a 400-bed university hospital that will offer the most advanced levels of healthcare services.

The medical city will also feature the country’s first medical mall, therapeutic and recreational areas, a regional cardiology centre, and an orthopaedic centre with investments for the medical city reaching $970 million.

Nixon will represent the group in Pakistan, and the medical city will be their first joint project, with MBF managing the city’s 1,000 medical, technical and administrative staff, who will all be Pakistanis.
