Sultan Bin Abdulaziz Humanitarian City (SBAHC) also known as The City, is a world class rehabilitation hospital situated at the north of Riyadh, Saudi Arabia established under the patronage of HRH Crown Prince Sultan Bin Abdulaziz as a testament of his compassion and dedication in helping the community especially the people with special needs.
SBAHC was established as a private, non-profit organization, considered as the largest rehabilitation center in the Middle East region not only by its physical size of 1 million square meters but also the number of beds it operates.
Since its inception in 2002, The City has served more than half a million patients through its seven specialized rehab buildings dedicated to rehab program and services for both inpatients and outpatient, and one building fully equipped with 8 operating rooms, recovery room, emergency room, ICU, clinical laboratory and radiological diagnostic suite. With its active contracts with all major insurance companies, Ministry of Health, Ministry of Interior and other GCC countries, SBAHC can treat patients across the region and even further, the hospital is open for the public and all those who require our services.
SBAHC is accredited by two international accrediting bodies, the Joint Commission for International Standards (JCIA) and the Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF), which guarantees the high quality of patient care rendered by The City.
With the recent statistics, around 93 million children worldwide have disabilities; in Saudi Arabia approximately 1 million of the total population were affected. The City is committed to dedicate its efforts to be the leading center of excellence in rehabilitation as well as to fulfill our obligation of providing information and awareness to the public.
This year 2015, SBAHC will strengthen its commitment in delivering the leading evidence based knowledge and latest research findings in the field of Pediatric Neuro-Rehabilitation through a multi-disciplinary international conference that connects acute care and rehabilitation.
SBAHC will be hosting an international conference entitled: International Pediatric Neuro- Rehabilitation “From Challenges to New Horizon” on December 1-3, 2015, that targets physician and other allied health care professionals creating an avenue for these professionals to review and discuss new trends and research findings.  This endeavor will be made possible through The City’s partnership with international leaders in this field. To further enrich the conference SBAHC invested through:

  • Signing a collaboration agreement with international organizations such as Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center USA.
  • Actively involving experts from other top International Hospitals and/ or experts in Rehabilitation services and neuro-surgery.
  • Targeting international and local researchers.
  • Exhibition of new technology and innovations

The conference program will cover basic and advance clinical and scientific advancements to be delivered by invited prominent speakers, clinicians and therapist who will lead our specialty into a great future.
I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere gratitude to all those who are working so hard on this special event especially my colleagues at the organizing and scientific committee as well as our partners, Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center, USA, who have generously given their support and commitment to make this conference possible as well as our sponsors.
On behalf of the whole organizing and scientific committee, we anticipate an exciting meeting that promises great debate and enjoyable social activities and we look forward to welcome you at the Sultan Bin Abdulaziz Humanitarian City in December 2015.

Yours truly,

Salih Al Kholaifi
Director General
