King Saud Medical City (previously known as Shemaisi Hospital) is one of the largest public district general hospitals.
In 1956, it had a level one trauma centre in Riyadh and was one of the largest territory care centres in Saudi Arabia, with the capacity for 1,500 inpatients. The original building consisted of small segments. Now, it's a complex that changed to a hospital in 2010. In 2020, the first digital operating theatre opened in Riyadh with a robotic surgery.
