Masfout hospital is first 30 bed general hospital prototype built in the Emirates of Ajman for the Ministry of Public Works. Preliminary discussions were held between the ministry of public works and UPA in the year 2007 to develop the design along with the medical equipment. The project comprises of ground floor for all functions of the hospital, and the first floor for inpatient wards only, but the services are located in mezzanine floor to serve both up to first floor and down to the main ground floor. This service area is connected by service bridge to the service block which is located at the side but away from the main hospital. The design and the selection of the material is developed to harmonize the surrounding  area which is of mountain nature. The Originally design allow the future expansion up to 60 beds.
