The Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland - Medical University of Bahrain (RCSI Bahrain) has announced its plans for the expansion of its campus in a strategic project valued at $ 45 million, as it marked the celebration of its 20th anniversary in Bahrain.

In line with a steadfast commitment to contributing with excellence towards the improvement of human health, patient care, and societal well-being, the University has consistently achieved pivotal milestones since its establishment, placing innovative research at the heart of its services through the School of Postgraduate Studies and Research, with a focus on interdisciplinary clinical and patient-centred research, as well as addressing key national, regional, and global health challenges.

Recently, RCSI Medical University of Bahrain signed an agreement with Nass Corporation for the construction of the University’s campus expansion project.

The ambitious expansion includes a brand new state-of-theart academic building designed to address the growing demand for advanced medical education and research facilities with the addition of 7,912 square meters of usable space, featuring the addition of enhanced teaching facilities, cutting-edge research labs, a modern library, social spaces, and a spacious event hall.

Emphasising a vested commitment towards sustainability, the project includes adopting low-carbon transportation options through bike racks and EV charging stations.

The design will incorporate energy-efficient features such as solar panels, LED lighting, and water conservation systems, with a focus on incorporating heat-reduction practices through the incorporation of native plants and green spaces into the landscape, as part of RCSI Bahrain’s commitment to fostering an environmentally friendly ecosystem that nurtures a sense of well-being.
