Sheikh Shakhbout Medical City in Abu Dhabi.

Sheikh Shakhbout Medical City, close to Abu Dhabi, Al Ain, and Al Dhafra, and part of Abu Dhabi Health Services Company’s (Seha) network, will partially open to the public on 3 November 2019, with the 30ha facility – touted as one of the UAE’s largest hospitals – to include 732 inpatient beds, and four wings for emergency and intensive care, acute surgery, maternity and children, and outpatient services.

Head of the medical city’s operations committee, Saed Jaber Al-Kuwaiti, said the hospital’s launch was in line with the Government of Abu Dhabi’s policy to raise healthcare standards to global levels and fulfil the goals of Abu Dhabi Vision 2030.

The first launch at Sheikh Shakhbout Medical City will cover adult cardiology; adult neurological; ear, nose, and throat; gastrointestinal; and hepatobiliary and ophthalmology clinics.

Phase 2 of the launch will take place towards the end of the current year or beginning of the next year, he added, according to UAE state news agency, Wam.
