IRAQ— The Iraqi Ministry of Health has secured a second deal with Elegancia Healthcare, a subsidiary of Qatar-based Estithmar Holding, to manage the 492-bed Al Hasan Al Mujtaba Teaching Hospital in Iraq’s Karbala Governorate.

This new deal follows the recent agreement to manage and run Al Nasiriya Teaching Hospital in Dhi Qaar Governorate, increasing the total number of beds administered by the two hospitals to approximately 1000.

The agreement was signed by Dr. Sabah Noor Al-Musawi, Director General of Karbala Health, and Eng. Mohammed bin Bader Al-Sadah, Estithmar Holding’s Group CEO.

In his speech, Eng.  Bader Al-Sadah commented on Elegancia Healthcare’s expansion in Iraq, stating that this initiative is consistent with Estithmar Holding’s efforts to expand its business and projects in Iraq. It is an addition to the recently signed agreement with the Dhi Qaar Governorate.
