Hospital projects launched in Asir
KHAMIS MUSHAIT, 12th March 2001

Prince Sultan, second deputy premier and minister of defense and aviation, yesterday opened the expansion of the armed forces hospitals program in the Southern Province. The project included a 40-bed pediatric hospital, a section for naturopathic treatment and expansion of specialized clinics.

Col. Saeed Erqan, director of the program, said the armed forces hospital is the only medical center in the region that offers services such as open heart surgery, kidney transplant operations and other specialized medical services. Prince Sultan inspected the expansion work that covers an area of 2,000 square meters.

Prince Sultan, who is on an inspection tour of the Southern Province, also visited the King Khaled Air Base. The minister was briefed on the location proposed for staging an armed forces exhibition. Prince Sultan later laid the foundation stone for a project to modernize aviation support services at the base.

Prince Sultan, who is chairman of the Higher Tourism Authority, will open a seminar on “Media and domestic tourism — present condition and future prospects” in Abha tomorrow.

Meanwhile, Prince Abdul Rahman, deputy minister of defense and aviation, yesterday visited the armed forces personnel at King Abdul Aziz Military City in the Tabuk region.
