Qatar plans to build world's largest hospital in time for 2022 FIFA World Cup
Qatar is reportedly planning to construct the world's largest hospital in Doha by 2020.
The hospital's construction is to be completed two years ahead of the FIFA World Cup, which the Gulf country is set to host for the first time.
According to local Arabic daily Al Sharq, the blueprint, budget and land for the hospital to be named after the country's Emir Shaikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Al Thani are ready.
Work on the massive project is expected to be launched soon, it added.
According to Gulf News, sources revealed that the hospital would also be the largest in the world in terms of accommodating patients and the range of treatment specialities.
"The hospital, expected to be the most advanced in the world, will be an architectural marvel and will be part of a plan by Qatar to dazzle the international community when it hosts the World Cup in 2022, just like it did in 2006 when it organised the Asian games," the sources said.
