The submission deadline for the awards nominations is 22 April 2015 and the awards ceremony will take place on 9 June 2015 during the Building Healthcare Exhibition & Conferences at the Dubai International Convention & Exhibition Centre.
“Hospitals are an integral part of healthcare services and each hospital has its own distinct character, creating an environment that helps the patient to recover. When architects design a hospital, they find inspiration from the vision, mission of the project and from the local environment. These awards will highlight all the innovative ideas for the design and operation of healthcare facilities in the region,” says Simon Page, Managing Director, Informa Life Sciences Exhibitions, organisers of the Building Healthcare Awards.

Awards contribute to successful public recognition. They can also help garner a significant amount of visibility in a certain market or industry, and attract new customers and investors by giving an organisation an edge over its competitors.”
