However, after the rush to the development phase, when many of the facilities are in place, emphasis shifted from monumental projects of very large hospitals to building clinics throughout the Kingdom to be used as units for primary health care.

A change of contractor sometimes meant the procurement of new equipment to suit incoming professionals, and sometimes mean the obsolescence of some equipment. 11 As discussed further in the section on reasons for cost increases, duplication of resources, particularly expensive medical equipment, occurs because of competition among health sectors. Availability of expensive medical equipment is seen as a status symbol. There is therefore no incentive to explore the possibility of making use of such equipment in another facility, since that does not enhance prestige.
After all, when patients need care, competency is more significant than the nationality of professionals. When Saudis went abroad in large numbers for medical care, the nationality of professionals was not an issue. This being stated, there is no denial that reliance on foreigners poses both financial and cultural problems, and, therefore, having more Saudis is highly desirable. Much of the argument, however, has more to do with costs, as there are no serious negative impacts on the quality of care provided because services are provided by non-Saudis.
