Dubai, UAE; 02 July, 2014: NMC Healthcare, the UAE’s largest private healthcare provider, opened the first multi-speciality hospital in Dubai Investments Park 1 (DIP 1) yesterday. The new facility will provide convenient round-the-clock medical services to the over 200,000 previously under-served residents of DIP and the significant population of south Dubai and beyond.
Located opposite the Green Community, the hospital will provide comprehensive healthcare to all Dubai residents, with a focus on those living within a convenient distance of DIP, thanks to its direct access to Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Road. As a result, residents of Arabian Ranches, Discovery Gardens, Jumeirah Lake Towers (JLT),
Al Barsha and Jebel Ali Village, in addition to Al Quoz and Dubai Sports City will have access to first-rate medical services all under one roof. Previously, residents in DIP and surrounding areas needed to drive 25 minutes to get medical care at a hospital.
On the occasion of the opening of the hospital, Dr B.R. Shetty, founder and CEO of
NMC Healthcare, said that the new facility is testament to NMC Healthcare’s long heritage and legacy in the United Arab Emirates: “This new facility is yet another milestone in NMC Healthcare’s longstanding mission to provide the UAE populace with quality healthcare that is easily accessible. For over 40 years now, our commitment to quality has driven the expansion of our network from our base in Abu Dhabi to more than a dozen facilities across the UAE. We are proud that this new establishment will provide first-class services to some of Dubai’s most populated residential areas. It is a valued addition to NMC Healthcare’s growing portfolio of facilities.”
“The opening of the NMC multi-specialty hospital within Dubai Investments Park is a significant boost to our development and reaffirms our commitment to offer the best healthcare facilities to our residents and employees in DIP. NMC has made a mark with its holistic, modern and high-quality approach to healthcare services, and we are happy to welcome the group in line with our envisioned goal to become a self-contained city within a city,” said Mr. Khalid Bin Kalban, Managing Director and CEO of Dubai Investments PJSC.
Along with Mr Khalid Bin Kalban, the event was graced by Dr Layla Mohamed Al Mazrouqi, Head of Clinical Governance Office, Dubai Health Authority and Mr Omar Al Mesmar, General Manager, Dubai Investments Park.
The hospital has 60 ward beds and 100 functional beds in all. Services available at the hospital include regular GP consultations, surgery, paediatrics, gynaecology and obstetrics, dentistry, dermatology, gastroenterology, urology, ENT and ophthalmology. The new hospital also provides 24-hour pharmacy, ambulance and emergency services, as well as an array of laboratory and radiology facilities.
Binay Shetty, COO of NMC Healthcare, added, “As a leading healthcare provider in the UAE, the decision to open a hospital in an area where it would make a real difference in people’s lives was a natural one. NMC Healthcare has faithfully served the UAE for four decades and we will continue to do so through our DIP facility by providing a range of comprehensive top-quality services.”
