Expanding healthcare options in Dubai

The healthcare market for international patients is growing in Dubai. Fakeeh University Hospital, a smart health-care facility, has now opened, and the Dubai Health Authority’s Dubai Fertility Centre has a new building for specialised fertility treatment.

Brought to the UAE by Saudi healthcare provider group, Fakeeh Care, Fakeeh University Hospital has 55 specialities to treat up to 70,000 patients a year.  It is aiming to serve communities in the UAE and the wider region.

The 350-bed smart facility will provide primary, secondary and tertiary care. The hospital claims to have advanced diagnostic technologies, and data-assisted and automated medication dispensing systems, including a robotic pharmacy.

The Dubai government set up the Dubai Fertility Centre in 1991 as a collaboration between the Dubai Health Authority (DHA) and the  London Fertility Centre. Between 2017 and 2020, the Centre received an average of 14,000 patients annually and provided treatment to 24,000 families, both from within the UAE and outside the country.

The new building in the Centre in Al Jaddaf will offer specialised fertility treatment. The DHA aims to develop the centre into a globally recognised specialised fertility treatment clinic, by providing the latest technology and equipment.
