Washington, DC, May 5, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- (http://www.myprgenie.com) -- American Hospital Management Company (AHMC), today assumed the management and operations of Al-Jazeera Medical Hospital in Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Al Jazeera Medical Hospital is the second medical facility to sign a long-term management agreement with AHMC in Saudi Arabia, joining Al Qadi Specialty Hospital in Najran. The Saudi healthcare sector is in a state of transition and is projected to grow significantly as the Kingdom has set a target of increasing the number of hospital beds in the country by 30,000 in the next few years.
Various reforms and incentives have been implemented which are encouraging modernization of existing facilities and the development of new state-of-the-art world-class facilities that meet international quality standards in order to meet the healthcare needs of the people. These developments coupled with the demand for American hospital management expertise have had a significantly positive impact on AHMC's commitment to playing a leading role in the healthcare future in Saudi Arabia and throughout the region.
"AHMC is dedicated to serving each client and bringing their facilities to cutting-edge, international standards. We are looking forward having a long-term relationship with Al Jazeera Medical Hospital and the community of Riyadh", said CEO Randall Arlett.
