Kuwait Health Assurance Company (KHAC)  signed a KD 162 mn deal with China Metallurgical Group Corporation (MCC) over the construction of two hospitals, reported Arabian Business on Tuesday.

The hospitals will have a 600-bed capacity and will provide health care services to insurance-paying expatriates, which constitutes the majority of Kuwait’s population.

MCC will design, build, equip, and maintain the hospitals, which are scheduled to open by the end of 2019.

KHAC is a company set up in 2014 by the Kuwaiti government in partnership with the private sector to provide healthcare to expatriates.
