Jeddah has a world-class
network of government and privately run hospitals and polyclinics, with a
united aim of maintaining and improving health standards.
With the combined backing of the state and the private sector, the city
is well-positioned to provide for its expanding population.
Our recent survey in Jeddah reveals a multitude of hospitals, polyclinics and
specialist units, all managed and run by highly-skilled, senior doctors.
The plentiful supply and variety of services means that the vast
majority of patients can now be treated in-Kingdom.

and then 1400-2100. (Note: Dr Soliman
Fakeeh is the only hospital in Jeddah to be open throughout the day and
