Patient Visits To Dubai Healthcare City Cross 600,000 In June 2014
(1 October 2014)


Raja Easa Al Gurg, Deputy Chairperson of the Board of Directors, Dubai Healthcare City, said: “DHCC has achieved tremendous growth since the outset of 2014. The healthcare sector is witnessing an expanding growth paradigm, especially regionally. The sector is bullish. The growth in population and income levels in addition to the mandatory insurance rollout will push for regulation, which in turn will result in an elevated level of healthcare delivery. DHCC is well positioned to weigh in on these trends and contribute to Dubai’s position as a destination for specialized healthcare.

“Driven by the aim to lead healthcare development in the region, DHCC’s strategy has proven effective, evident from the increasing number of healthcare professionals, business partners and patient inflow. With Phase 2 under development, the region will benefit from projects introduced to address gaps in the sector. The outlook is bright.”

Marwan Abedin, Chief Executive Officer of DHCC, said: “DHCC was established 12 years ago with a mission to enable high quality integrated healthcare, education, research and wellness by forming strategic partnerships. Today, and through our partnerships with some of the leading international and regional players in the healthcare sector, we are recognized as the largest healthcare free zone delivering specialized healthcare. In the first half of this year, we have developed strategic partnerships, launched new projects and expansions, advanced work on existing projects and delivered healthcare services to patients at the highest standards possible.”

Dubai Healthcare City, overseen by the Dubai Healthcare City Authority (DHCA), the governing body and regulator, operates in Healthcare, Education and Research, Investment and Regulatory.


Patients visiting DHCC have the option to consult and refer to 124 clinical facilities including JCI-accredited hospitals, outpatient medical centers and diagnostic laboratories. DHCC also has 180 non-clinical facilities including healthcare consultancy, clinical research organizations, and patient education services.

From January to June this year, patient visits to DHCC crossed 600,000; visits expected to reach 1.2 million by year end, up from a million recorded in 2013.

Of DHCC patients, roughly 15% are medical tourists. The majority represented by patients from GCC, Arab World, Eastern and Western Europe and Asia, seeking procedures, treatments or tests in infertility, cosmetic, dental, cardiac, and orthopedic.
