Abul-Rish is the first hospital in the Middle East specialising in the treatment of acute child diseases.
The third phase of the development plan aims to raise the hospital's capacity to deal with 2,500 children daily. The overall cost of the project, amounting to $1 billion, was provided by the Japanese government.
Abul-Rish, which is connected to foreign hospitals by satellite, has introduced to Egypt the new technology of remote medical treatment, consultations and conferences. The satellite connection will also provide medical support to remote areas of the country.
