Overview

In the Medical City, our team carried out their works on the major structural repairs on the hospital’s lift system, electrical works, roof tiles, hydrotherapy pool, air cooling units, water tank and fi re system.

Rehabilitation work in the Medical City took 10 months, and saw its completion in July 2004. The patients of the hospital had earlier suffered from 14 years of impaired quality of care as a result of under-funding and under-investment. Since its rehabilitation, the Medical City has seen an upgrade in its facilities and services. A total USD208,677.88 was spent on the rehabilitation of the Medical City.

An efficient fuel system is imperative for the effective running of the whole complex. The Medical City also serves as a major complex for undergraduate and postgraduate medical studies in Baghdad. It houses the Baghdad teaching School, Surgical Specialities Hospital, Nursing Hospital, Al Mansoor Paediatric Teaching Hospital, Bone Marrow Implantation Centre, Teaching Laboratories, the Central Laundry, Administrative Building, as well as the Doctors’ Dormitory.

Previously, the Medical City fuel system was supported by old pipelines and fuel tanks that leaked, resulting in the accumulation of fuel in the complex’s sewage system.

On March 2004, MERCY Malaysia embarked on an installation of 3 new fuel tanks bearing a capacity of 250,000 litres. The tanks supply fuel to the boilers of the complex, which in turn generate steam for heating, laundry, cooking and sterilisation processes in the Medical City. MERCY Malaysia disbursed USD17,000 for the installation of these new tanks in the Medical City.
