With four skyscrapers as the “sails”, it will sit on an artificial lake in the new city, which is being built in stages by the Tunisian Government. It will contain several international and local hospitals, a medical college, laboratories and facilities for exercise. The interior design for the hospital has not yet been completed but it can be completed within four years. According to Tunisia Economic City planners, it will be one of the first buildings constructed, in the “medical city” area.
