H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid al Maktoum approves a new Dh290-million expansion plan for Dubai Hospital 24 May 2017
24 May 2017: Sheikh Hamdan Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai, UAE Minister of Finance, and President of the Dubai Health Authority, approved a new Dh290-million expansion plan for Dubai Hospital.
 
The expansion meets the growing demand on medical services from within and outside the UAE. Also, it will provide a dedicated area for outpatient services, which in turn will reduce the waiting time at the hospital, provide enhanced outpatient clinics for a number of medical specialties, and thus help further improve high-quality patient-centric care - the core of the Dubai Health Strategy 2016-2021.
 
The first phase of the expansion will cost around Dh100 million and will include a six-storey building for specialized outpatient clinics. It will spread across 17,800 square meters and will include 142 specialty clinics — three times the current number of specialty clinics (48 clinics).
 
The ground floor will provide diagnostic services including laboratory and radiology, as well as a pharmacy.
 
The first floor will include 21 endocrinology and diabetes clinics and 13 clinics for rheumatism and immunology, while the second floor will consist of six internal medicine clinics, 17 urology clinics, and other multidisciplinary clinics. Meanwhile, the third floor will include six cardiology clinics and 10 blood diseases clinics, and the fourth floor will have 12 clinics for obstetrics and gynecology, and 13 pediatric clinics.
 
Finally, the fifth floor will have 19 clinics for ophthalmology and 12 administration offices, and the last floor will house 25 dental clinics.
 
In the second phase of the project, lecture halls and workshops with the latest technology will be added, as well as more than 1,200 parking slots for visitors.
