Abdul Latif Jameel Hospital
In line with our wellbeing and health initiatives, we helped inaugurate Abdul Latif Jameel Hospital in 1997, the first healthcare facility of its kind pioneering medical rehabilitation in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
Abdul Latif Jameel Hospital offers comprehensive and distinctive rehabilitation programmes for adults and children; which include intensive day-care in the “Seniors club” programme, recreational programmes for the inpatients, autism care programme, outpatient treatment, medical services, sustainable medical care, and home care.
Abdul Latif Jameel Hospital has been the pioneer in launching the Cyberdyne robot in Saudi Arabia which has helped multiple people with mobility over time.
The hospital covers 43,000 sq. m, including eight wards and 120 beds, offering inpatient rooms and treatment as well as rejuvenation wards which overlook natural landscapes and breath-taking views. Facilities also include separate prayer halls, gym, and hydrotherapy area.

The the place I love the most at Abdul Latif Jameel Hospital is here, under the sunroof at the centre of the hospital, where everyone is sincere and friendly. My most enjoyable times are spent visiting the mall and celebrating the national day festivities. I have spent my youth in Japan where my husband was working at the Saudi Embassy. There, I fell in love with the people and learnt a bit of Japanese too!
Sheikh Abdul Latif Jameel was always adamant on resolving everyone’s problems and attending to their needs. He confronted my inconvenience with wisdom and patience, saying ”May God guide you to the righteous path”. I asked him one day “you have projects all over the world, including U.S., U.K. and Egypt, how did you accomplish this success?” He responded, “with honesty and trustworthiness”. During a trip to U.K., France and Switzerland, Sheikh Abdul Latif proposed establishing a care home for the elderly, a resting sanctuary for our retirement. He always focused on development.
When my son first brought me here three years ago, I was a bit tense and sceptical. Now, I am ever so grateful and thank God for being here; I am able to walk again, and I love to spend time listening to the sound of birds singing and chirping all around the greenery of this place. The fact that the entire hospital is on one level helps me move independently.
