Al Wakra Hospital opened in May 2011 to welcome and receive pediatric, medical, surgical and obstetric outpatients. In October of the same year the first inpatients were admitted to the pediatric ward. The 250-bed hospital is situated about a kilometer from the town center and has a distinctive circular "hub" with buildings attached in a pattern like spokes on a wheel. The building appears prominent and distinctive from the air as it is on the flight path leading to Doha airport, about a dozen kilometers away.
