Methodist International, the global subsidiary of The Methodist Hospital in Houston, Texas, United States of America, has entered into an agreement to provide services for the development and operations of a new Medical City, providing the full continuum of care as part of the Prince Sultan Cultural Center in Jeddah, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

The Prince Sultan Cultural Center Company (PSCC) is planning to develop a fully integrated Medical City as part of a larger cultural park in Jeddah, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, in honor of Prince Sultan bin Abdul-Aziz Al Saud and envisioned by Governor of Makkah, Prince Khalid Al Faisal.

The cultural park is intended to provide services to 3.5 to 5 million inhabitants in Makkah Province, including housing developments, a commercial complex with showrooms and hotels, medical university, a sports center, an international conference and exhibition center, and various public utility services.

The Medical City will offer all medical services through the continuum of care at every stage of life, from birth to old age, and from wellbeing to critical care. The complex will include a general hospital, several specialized hospitals and medical centers, wellness and long term care facilities and a school of health sciences. This will be complemented by a range of support services such as clinics, pharmacies, and hospitality and office space.

Mr. Mohammad Al Fadl, Chairman of the Board of Directors at PSCC, said, "Prince Sultan Culture Center Medical City will be the leading healthcare provider in Western Province. We are pleased to have Methodist International as our partner and operator of our flagship hospital."

Methodist International has entered into a long-term relationship with PSCC focusing on quality, training, program management, compliance standards and knowledge transfer. A clinical and administrative team of consultants from Methodist will focus on the development and establishment of exceptional clinical, operational and quality standards for the Medical City.

Following the establishment of the Medical City, Methodist International will enter into a ten-year management agreement to manage and operate four of the medical facilities planned as part of the overall project: the general teaching hospital; bone and joint hospital; diabetes, lipids and hypertension center; and wellness and ambulatory surgical center.
