Iran’s first nuclear hospital to be launched in 3-4 years: Salehi

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Ali Akbar Salehi stressed that the country is seriously pursuing construction of its first nuclear hospital, which he said will be a special nuclear research center.

“We are seriously following up on the construction of the nuclear hospital,” Salehi said in a televised interview with IRIB on Monday night.

The recent visits President Hassan Rouhani paid to Italy and France have offered promising prospects for the hospital’s construction, he added.

“The hospital will have the most advanced radio-equipment,” Salehi noted, predicting that its first phase will be inaugurated within the next 3 to 4 years.

“The Iranian nuclear hospital will not just be a hospital, but a nuclear research center, where nuclear engineers will work on medical issues,” he added.

According to the Iranian nuclear chief, the hospital will cost some $330 million to build.

Salehi had earlier announced that Iran is seriously pursuing the necessary measures to turn the country into a hub of nuclear medicine production in the Middle East.

This comes against the backdrop of a recent nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers, whose implementation began on January 16.

Based on the deal, all anti-Iran nuclear-related sanctions were removed, and the country can now cooperate with foreign countries in its nuclear activities.
