Queen Rania and King Abdullah II of Jordan Attend the Opening Of A New Hospital Ward

One would assume, due to the on-going public health concerns, many high-profile individuals would shy away from visiting hospitals; but not even COVID-19 could stop his majesty, King Abdullah II, and Queen Rania from attending an opening ceremony at a hospital in Jordan.

Yesterday, Queen Rania took to Instagram to share a photo of herself with the King at the inauguration of Al Bashir Hospital’s new emergency oncology wards.

According to Royal Central, the new 22,000 square meters ward was built to help accommodate the influx of new patients, with construction starting in 2018. The new ward is finally finished and could not have come at a more perfect time.

The new facility was made to improve medical services and infrastructure, and includes a helipad for medical evacuation.

Both King Abdullah II and Queen Rania were briefed on the rehabilitation process of the oncology ward and how it was funded. Their majesties both wore black face mask, with Queen Rania wearing a royal blue two-piece silk out.
