Dubai Hospital

The Dubai Health Authority (DHA) has completed the first phase of the expansion and renovation of Dubai Hospital’s emergency department.

The department receives more than 8,000 emergencies per month and will now have 50 fully operational beds.

Additional recovery rooms are also equipped with cutting-edge technology patients in a critical state and the department now has a fully integrated maternity and pediatric unit too, Dubai Media Office said in a statement.

Additionally, the expansion also provided additional emergency rooms.

Renovation work in the emergency department focused on restructuring patient rooms, screening rooms, recovery rooms and cardiac control.

To reduce the response time to emergencies, a dedicated entrance was designed for ambulances and another one for patients accompanying relatives.

Humaid Al Qutami, director-general of the DHA, recently inspected that department and said that the DHA is working on continuously updating the emergency departments across all its hospitals.

On Sunday, Dubai Hospital confirmed that its new pediatric intensive care unit had begun treating patients.

The new pediatric unit includes eight separate rooms. Dubai Hospital specializes in six different conditions for children, including pediatric tumors, kidney diseases, endocrine glands, diabetes, the digestive system and heart disease.

The DHA also recently said that it had completed work of the Surgical Intensive Care Unit at Dubai Hospital, and thereby increased the capacity of the unit for adult patients to 13 beds.
