Investment volume in the private hospitals sector in the Kingdom exceeds JD2 billion, Private Hospitals Association President Fawzi Hammouri said Monday. Hammouri made these remarks after his participation in the 1st National Conference for Investment where he indicated that private hospitals employ 30,000 workers, 95 per cent of whom are Jordanians. He said that 64 private hospitals constitute 60 per cent of the total number of hospitals in the Kingdom. He added that the attractive investment environment has contributed to developing the sector, referring to the investment law that exempts hospitals from customs fees and sales tax on construction materials and medical equipment. He pointed out that there are more than 25,000 Jordanian doctors in the Kingdom, noting that with 28.6 doctors to each 10,000 citizens, this ratio is considered among the highest in the world.
