Hospitals planned or under construction in Dubai

  • Fakeeh Medical University or College - planned, located in Dubai Silicon Oasis (DSO), associated with the DSO University Hospital. Opening date scheduled for 2019+delays. Courses and departments will include clinical pharmacy, dentistry, health policy and management, laboratory sciences, medicine, nursing, physiotherapy, radiology. See University Hospital DSO entry for more information about the overall project.
  • University Hospital Dubai Silicon Oasis (DSO), announced 05 Feb 2014 (press release 08 Feb 2014). Planned with opening date scheduled for 2017+delays. Teaching hospital and medical college (Fakih, Fakeeh Medical College, opening 2019). Location in DSO Technology Park? Total cost for both projects AED 1 billion. Area 150,000 sq meters. Hospital and college target market is DSO residents, medical tourism, and other rich patients - expect fees to be expensive. Departments and specializations to include cardiology, cosmetic laser surgery, mother and child health, obesity management, plastic surgery, spinal surgery. Hospital capacity 300 beds. Patient treatment capacity confusing, the press release said "a capacity of 700,000 patients per year, with an estimated 40,000 admissions and 20,000 surgical operations." Perhaps they will have special offers - admit one patient, get one or more free. Can a hospital have patients without admitting them? Partnerships planned or desired with Rochester Institute of Technology in DSO (RIT), the American University of Sharjah, the Al Ain University (or UAE University in Al Ain - unclear which), and Dubai Academic City colleges and universities. Some reports said hospital operation and management would be by those universities, but it sounds a bit odd to have so many different chiefs and cooks for that broth. Press release said "Fakeeh Medical University will partner with local universities, ... to help foster collaboration among medical students, researchers and clinical care providers." Developer is Dr Soliman Fakeeh Hospital (DSFH) in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.
