Iacad, DHA start work on $10m Zayed Dialysis Centre in Al Twar
Healthcare hub located close to Dubai International Airport will have two floors with a total area of 5,340m2
Director general of Dubai Health Authority (DHA), Humaid Al Qutami, and director general of Islamic Affairs and Charitable Activities Department in Dubai (Iacad), Hamad bin Al Shaikh Ahmed Al Shaibani, have laid the foundation stone for the $10m (AED36.8m) Zayed Dialysis Centre at Al Twar-3, a locality near Dubai International Airport.
The design and construction of the centre, which will have two floors with a total area of 5,340m2 and a capacity of 40 beds, will be completed within 18 months from the date of signing the contract.
Zayed Dialysis Centre – named after the Founding Father of the UAE, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan – will allocate 30% of its capacity to contributing charities Dar al-Bar, Beit Al Khair Society, and Dubai Charity, whose patients will be treated for free.
Iacad said earlier this year that it would contribute $8.2m (AED30m) of the total value of Zayed Dialysis Centre’s construction cost.
DHA said it would develop a second dialysis centre in Dubai's Al Barsha area, according to UAE state news agency, Wam.
