Dubai Health care City
The City that Makes Health its Priority
Dynamic health is a common concern for families and individuals all over the world. Its importance has driven remarkable international advancements in the healthcare industry.
Immense potential exists in the region for a world-class state-of-the-art center for medical excellence. Dubai, the second largest emirate in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), is the city of choice for such a venture, offering a strategic location and a reputation for successfully developing innovative projects.
Dubai offers an unparalleled quality of life in a virtually crime-free tolerant society; world-class hotels, sports and leisure, entertainment and shopping facilities – all of which combine to make Dubai a leading place to live and work.
Dubai Healthcare City (DHCC) was launched in 2002 by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to meet the demand for high quality, integrated healthcare in the region.
Today, DHCC is home to two Joint Commission International (JCI) accredited hospitals, over 90 outpatient clinics and diagnostic laboratories, with over 2,500 licensed professionals, plus numerous allied healthcare and retail businesses.
According to a publication a strong signal of Dubai’s fast-growing position as one of the world’s leading medical capitals, the healthcare market in the emirate is projected to be worth $10.9 billion (Dh40 billion) by 2013.
The two major factors driving this growth are the increased investments by government and international investors, as well as Dubai's emerging role as a leading destination for medical tourism. The substantial growth in investments is expected to yield a sharp rise in new medical institutions, research and medical education facilities.
In addition to new institutions, Dubai is also receiving growing interest from international pharmaceutical companies who are striving to make breakthroughs in medical cures. This trend is further boosted by the ever-growing number of highly skilled professionals who are applying to work in Dubai. What is particularly notable is that Dubai’s leading hospitals such as Saudi German Hospital-Dubai have attracted professionals from some of the world’s most prestigious medical institutions in Europe and elsewhere.
