New AUB health services building inaugurated

BEIRUT: The American University of Beirut Medical Center inaugurated Monday the Wassef and Souad Sawwaf Building, the new home of the University Health Services, a statement from the university said. 

The new building will also house family medicine clinics and a diagnostic unit for cancer, heart disease and certain neurological conditions. 

Located in Clemenceau, the new four-story facility was funded by Mu’taz Sawwaf, an AUB alumnus, philanthropist and leading construction developer in the region. 

The building is named after Sawwaf’s parents, Wassef and Souad. “This very generous donation by the Sawwaf family has provided a major new facility and leading scientific equipment, key priorities of the AUBMC 2020 Vision,” said Dr. Mohamed Sayegh, dean of the Faculty of Medicine and vice president for medical affairs.
