The consortium was awarded the project on 15 March 2012.
The public-private partnership (PPP) project involves the design, construction, financing andoperationof the health campus, as well as the supply of facilities and equipment. The health campus with an investment period of 3 years and operation period of 25 years is stipulated to serve 100.000 visitors per day with its 10.000 employees.

- Gynecology: 451 beds
- Neurology and Orthopedics: 347 beds
