The Public Works Authority (Ashghal) has announced a bidding process for a new building for National Centre for Cancer Care and Research, said The Peninsula. The QR8,750,000 bid is open until October 5, according to the official website of Ashghal. It has invited bids from only Qatari companies, but non-Qatari firms can join in as joint ventures. The National Cancer Strategy: The Path to Excellence was launched in 2011, with an investment of over QR2,204m.

It includes plans to refurbish Al Amal Hospital, set up National Centre for Cancer Care and Research and a new cancer hospital. The strategy has implemented refurbishment of Al Amal Hospital, a facility for cancer patients, to have a comprehensive cancer care centre under one roof without space constraints. The refurbished hospital was renamed National Centre for Cancer Care and Research and acts as more than a service provider. Since refurbishment, the centre has been functioning as a medium-term solution. The new cancer hospital on the HMC site will treat patients and conduct research.
