More attention is needed for healthcare centers projects and its development to change and improve the health situation in Iraq. The study of risk in this type of projects is essential to avoid the problems encountered during the project life cycle. This paper aimed to identify risk factors facing the construction of an advanced healthcare centers and to enhance the possible solutions based on the opinion of experts. For data collection, fifty-five risk factors were presented in a questionnaire form. The result showed that the major risk factor was government corruption, which has a direct influence on the economy and a negative impact on the infrastructure in the country and its development. The analysis showed that financial problems represent the highest risk during the years in all construction projects. Other considerable risk factors were time overrun, labor safety, as well as environmental risks, which are related to waste treatment. Other important risk factors were related to the ventilation system and air conditioning, also risk in providing continuous electrical power during the day. In term of risk groups, the five most effective ones were political, Economic, Safety, Operation & Maintenance and Construction risks.

In this research, a "Project planning / Risk analysis" model that consists of four modules has been developed to aid the decision-maker in planning different types of projects and analyze the risks. These modules are: Planning, Decision-Making Process 1, Risk Analysis, and Decision-Making Process 2.The model can be used to generate different scenarios of project plan according to the decision-maker's opinion in choosing the type of probability distribution, changing the probability/impact of the risk occurrences and/or changing the input values (time/cost) into the probability distribution. These scenarios will be resulted by Monte Carlo simulation as well as the application of qualitative techniques to assess risks and combining their probability of occurrence and impact, and quantitative techniques to numerically analyze the effect of identified risks. Moreover, it gives the decision-maker the ability of avoiding unexpected events through providing a futuristic look of the most project risky activities by implementing risk ranking matrix using heat map. The developed model will go through interrelating three software; Microsoft Project, Microsoft Excel and @Risk from Palisade.
