Dubai Healthcare City Received Over Half A Million Patients In June
(2 October 2014)


Dubai Healthcare City, DHCC, has announced that patient visits have exceeded 600,000 in June 2014, and is expected to reach 1.2 million by the end of the year, up by a million recorded in 2013.

In its H1 2014 report released yesterday, DHCC also said that 15 percent of its patients are medical tourists which come from the GCC, Arab nations, Eastern and Western Europe and Asia.

The report also revealed that DHCC has set up nine new healthcare centres in the first half of 2014, and licensed 315 new healthcare professionals, bringing the total number of licensed healthcare professionals in to 4,101.
Raja Easa Al Gurg, Deputy Chairperson of the Board of Directors, DHCC, said, "DHCC has achieved tremendous growth since the outset of 2014. The healthcare sector is witnessing an expanding growth, especially in this region.

A growing population and high income levels, in addition to mandatory insurance have resulted in an elevated level of healthcare delivery. DHCC is well positioned to contribute to Dubai's position as a destination for specialised healthcare." Patients visiting DHCC have the option to consult and refer to 124 clinical facilities including Joint Commission International (JCI)-accredited hospitals, outpatient medical centres and diagnostic laboratories. DHCC also has 180 non-clinical facilities including healthcare consultancy, clinical research organisations, and patient education services.

DHCC has also been involved in education and research. During the first half of 2014, DHCC signed 18 Memorandum of Understanding (MoUs) with Siemens, Cambridge University Hospital, GE Healthcare, City University of London, and Dubai Medical College for Girls among others. The MoUs signify collaboration to further medical education and technical training.
