Situated in Al Rayyan, about 20 minutes from central Doha, Sidra Medicine is a state-of-the art facility that’s fully complemented by exceptional architecture. With three atriums inspired by the sails of traditional dhows, Sidra was conceptualised by Pelli Clarke & Partners, a firm that’s famous for imaginative buildings and spaces that inspire, transform and energise communities worldwide.

Part of the Education City campus, the 380-bed complex is more than a hospital and ambulatory care centre: it also provides world class clinical services and biomedical research. 

Highlights of your visit

  • Towering, sail-like design

  • Thoughtfully conceived atriums

  • The Miraculous Journey sculptures by Damien Hirst

Architect Cesar Pelli is responsible for prestigious projects such as New York’s World Financial Center; Petronas Towers in Malaysia and Hong Kong’s International Finance Centre.

Sidra has dedicated sections for children, women, and adult acute care. Each of the three divisions is expressed by massive wings that salute the sky using Zepps modular design, a technique that enables artists to create any sculptural form they can imagine.

Inside, Sidra Medicine has been purposefully devised to be a benchmark for healing environments worldwide.
