Hospital Guide


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.


The Survey 

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.  Regular opening hours for hospitals and polyclinics is from 0900-1300 and then 1400-2100.  (Note: Dr Soliman Fakeeh is the only hospital in Jeddah to be open throughout the day and evening, from 0900-0100)
