The National Bank of Kuwait (NBK) and the Kuwait Ministry of Health have officially opened the Stem Cell Therapy Unit at NBK Children’s Hospital designed by SSH.
SSH is honoured to have been trusted to deliver such a vital facility for children living with cancer.
The completion of the new hospital building falls under corporate social responsibility initiatives undertaken by NBK. SSH congratulates the management of the bank on opening of this Unit.
The specialist healthcare centre is the first hospital in Kuwait that offers bone marrow transplants for children under 16 years old free of charge and is a continuation of the NBK children's hospital project, which the bank first launched in 1996.
The SSH multi-disciplinary teams oversaw the output of the scheme, in terms of healthcare architecture, medical planning and sustainable MEP. Services provided included conceptualising the design, followed by full documentation of the design while coordinating with other specialists, and construction supervision of the project.
The Stem Cell Therapy Unit comprises an outpatient department (clinics), day care facilities (infusion and treatment areas), a bone marrow transplant unit (specialist inpatient unit), specialist laboratories (haematology/oncology testing), pharmacy, administration and educational areas, case conference and lobby services. The mechanical and electrical services were designed to support the completed first phase of the project and potential further phases if required.
