Hospitals in UAE

Hospitals and medical facilities in the UAE

List of UAE hospitals, medical and health facilities, clinics, healthcare centers in Abu Dhabi, Ajman, Al Ain, Dubai, Fujairah, Ras Al Khaimah (RAK) Sharjah, Umm Al Quwain (UAQ).

Medical care in Dubai and the UAE varies, as anywhere, from poor to excellent. The UAE has about 35-40 Government hospitals and a similar number of private hospitals although with developments like Dubai Healthcare City (DHCC), there is rapid expansion in the number of private institutes ready to fix your bones and take your blood. Additionally, there are 150 or more Primary Healthcare Centers in the UAE.

Government hospitals often get a bad rap but in terms of medical attention, this is perhaps a bit harsh, notwithstanding the press reports of less than satisfactory medical attention. You will probably find the biggest difference between government and private hospitals is "Customer Service" for want of a better term. Dormitory style rooms rather than private hotel rooms are the norm, and staff shortages mean nurses especially, are overworked and underpaid. But you will usually get the medical attention you need, at least in Dubai and Abu Dhabi anyway. Sometimes, for major medical procedures, a private hospital will ship you off to a government hospital anyway.

In the other emirates medical treatment might be more questionable, and it is common for residents in those emirates to go to Abu Dhabi or Dubai for medical procedures, especially major ones. Communication in English might also be difficult in more remote areas, depending on the nationalities of the doctors, nurses, technicians, and other staff. Communication in Arabic might be difficult, also dependent on the nationality of staff you're talking to - many hospitals employ doctors and nurses who might not speak any Arabic, but usually non-Arab nationalities employed all speak English, as do the majority of Arab nationalities employed, especially in Abu Dhabi and Dubai private hospitals.

Sometimes there's a bit of an overlap between what is a government facility and what is a private facility - some hospitals are run as a partnership between a private entity (possibly government owned), and a foreign center. A Public Private Partnership (PPP) type of structure.
