• The new hospital opens ahead of schedule, offering best-in-class healthcare to women and children
• Amanat has been working with its operating partners towards the successful opening following its acquisition of a 69.3% stake in the hospital in August 2018

Manama, Bahrain, 31 March 2019: Amanat is pleased to confirm that the Royal Hospital for Women & Children (RHWC), a new specialized healthcare facility located in Bahrain, successfully opened on March 21st, 2019. Amanat acquired a 69.3% stake in the hospital in August 2018 with a view to generating long-term sustainable value.

Since acquisition, Amanat has worked closely with its operating partners to secure top medical talent to deliver the highest standards of care with a focus on patient safety, superior clinical outcomes and unparalleled patient experience. Commencing with outpatient care at opening, the hospital will ultimately offer an extensive range of medical services centered around women and children, including maternity and neonatal care with NICU levels 1, 2 and 3, assisted reproductive treatment (IVF), gynecology, pediatrics, invasive and minimally invasive surgery, and women-oriented wellness and aesthetic treatments.

Driven by a dedicated team of leading consultants and medical professionals, the facility includes advanced operating theatres, labor and deliver rooms, intensive care units, and daycare and minor procedure rooms. The hospital building spans a total area of 10,000 square meters and offers spacious suites and private rooms, ensuring patient recovery, wellbeing and comfort.

The opening of the Royal Hospital for Women and Children marks a significant step for Amanat towards building robust, sustainable healthcare platforms. Tristan de Boysson, CEO of Amanat, commented: “There is significant unmet demand for a high quality offering such as RHWC and we look forward to positioning the hospital as a leading specialized healthcare center. We have identified several attractive healthcare platforms to deliver specialized medical services across the region, and providing best-in-class care to women and children was one of our top priorities.”

Amanat is confident that this plan will differentiate its portfolio and contribute to achieving industry-leading margins and returns for its investors.
