Bahrain hospitals and clinics, as well as developing specialist treatments, are continuously growing. The increase in general and specialist medicine and hospital developments make the Bahrain healthcare department primed and promising for investments. The Bahrain healthcare sector has solid foundations, exciting growth opportunities, a centralised location and promising talent, making it the future of the healthcare industry in the Gulf.

Growing fast, with headroom

Healthcare in Bahrain is expanding rapidly with a focus on developing centres of medical excellence. At the same time, a healthcare industry analysis reports that Bahrain has the lowest density of health workers per capita in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), suggesting significant room for expansion (WHO 2017). Hospitals in Bahrain may have the lowest density, but Bahrain medical centres are primed for expansion with an excellent workforce. With a market on the rise and a workforce ripe for development, now is the time to take advantage of healthcare investment opportunities in Bahrain and invest in research facilities and hospitals in Bahrain.

Your business is in safe hands

Bahrain provides the perfect combination of training, talent, and technology to make the healthcare sector a promising financial opportunity for you across the entire region.

World-class health institutions

Prominent health training institutions already operate in Bahrain, providing solid foundations for further healthcare investment. Our growing healthcare sector is already home to The Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland, the College of Health Science, and the Arabian Gulf University, which plans to expand into King Abdullah Medical City with a medical school campus and a new teaching hospital by the end of 2021.

Superb talent pool

Bahrain is perfectly placed to attract a new breed of talent for the healthcare sector. We have a young, educated population with the region’s highest private sector engagement and high-quality, competitively-priced living.

An excellent technology base

Bahrain is well placed to capitalise on the fastest-expanding global healthcare sector: medical technology. Through technology transformation, we offer a well-established and evolving ICT ecosystem, with considerable support for start-ups. Improved technology also provides more research data to enhance medical practices.

The ideal location

Bahrain’s strategic location gives it a strong market position. Our position at the centre of the GCC makes us a magnet for regional healthcare services. The Kingdom is just a one-hour flight from large neighbouring markets like the UAE and Saudi Arabia, where the combination of emerging chronic lifestyle diseases and middle-class healthcare consumption suggests that expenditure in the healthcare sector is forecast to increase significantly.
