Abu Dhabi opens new urgent care centre for Covid-19 patients

A new Urgent Care Center at Al Rahba Hospital has been opened in Abu Dhabi to support Covid-19 patients.

The unit open daily from noon-10pm will provide Covid-19 medical services for patients referred by Prime Assessment Centers, the Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (SEHA), the UAE’s largest healthcare network, announced on Sunday.

Once patients have been confirmed as having tested positive the Covid-19, blood tests, X-rays, and other medical tests are subsequently performed to assess the patient’s overall condition and the severity of their symptoms.

Patients who are in critical condition are admitted into the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) and kept under medical supervision.

Al Rahba Hospital, operated by SEHA’s Sheikh Khalifa Medical City (SKMC), has become a dedicated hospital for infectious diseases, including Covid-19. The hospital has increased its bed capacity to 250, with 200 beds assigned for acute care and 50 beds assigned to ICU. The recent opening of the Urgent Care Center at Al Rahba Hospital aims to further increase access to urgent care in Abu Dhabi.

Al Rahba Hospital also includes 48 doctors specialising in internal medicine and infectious diseases. Patients with severe Covid-19 symptoms are provided with appropriate medical attention. The hospital also provides medical services pertaining to chronic diseases such as heart, kidney and liver infections.

In 2021, Al Rahba Hospital underwent significant renovation and expansions to meet the requirements as a designated Infectious Disease hospital in the wake of the pandemic, according to Abu Dhabi Media Office.

“Since the onset of the pandemic, Al Rahba Hospital was among the first hospitals designated for Covid-19 patient care in Abu Dhabi. In 2021, the hospital was designated as a facility specialising in infectious diseases in the emirate. This designation was based on its medical expertise and technical know-how in managing infectious diseases such as pulmonary tuberculosis, hemorrhagic fever, viral and respiratory infections, HIV and malaria infection complications, as well as Covid-19” said Dr. Marwan Ali Al Kaabi, acting group chief operations officer at SEHA.

As of February 13, MoHAP noted that the total number of recorded cases in the UAE stands at 868,237.
