The new Sheikh Khalifa Medical City in Abu Dhabi is slated to begin construction in 2013 and will provide advanced medical care in the heart of the city. Envisioned as a sustainable city within a city, the new hospital will feature strategies to cope with the intense desert climate to create a welcoming and pleasant atmosphere for patients and visitors. The SOM-designed hospital is aiming for a Two Pearl rating under the Estidama guidelines for sustainable design, which is equivalent to a LEED Gold certification.
