Iacad, Dubai Health Authority award deal for Zayed Dialysis Centre
Islamic Affaris and Charitable Activities Department to contribute $8.2m of $10m contract for dialysis centre in Dubai's Al Twar 3
Dubai’s Islamic Affaris and Charitable Activities Department (Iacad) – in cooperation with Dubai Health Authority (DHA) – has awarded a $10m (AED36.8m) contract to build Zayed Dialysis Centre in Al Twar 3, a neighbourhood close to Dubai International Airport.
According to Wam, Iacad will contribute $8.2m (AED30m) of the total value of Zayed Dialysis Centre’s total construction cost.
Construction on the centre – named after the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the Fouding Father of the UAE – is expected to complete within 18 months of signing the contract, the state-run news outlet added.
Thirty percent of Zayed Dialysis Centre’s capacity, equivalent to 40 beds, will be allocated to patients transferred by charitable associations that are a part of the project to construct the centre.
With this in mind, patients of Dar Al Ber Society, Beit Al Khair Society, and Dubai Charity Association will be offered free medical services.
The centre will include a dialysis unit outside the hospital, a licensed medical facility providing services to patients requiring dialysis on a regular basis.
Training on how to conduct dialysis at home will also be offered.
The project is part of Dubai’s efforts to develop local humanitarian work, as well as Iacad’s commitment to achieving the goals of the ninth article of the Fifty-Year Charter issued by HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE, and Ruler of Dubai.
According to Wam, Dr Hamad bin Al Shaikh Ahmed Al Shaibani, director-general of Iacad, the centre highlighted the department’s commitment to promoting humanitarian and charity work in Dubai through various humanitarian projects and initiatives.
