This phase will include the construction of a new tower with a capacity of 100 beds, at a total cost of US$82mn, TradeArabia news agency reported.

The report said that the new tower will be adjacent to the current hospital building located in Abu Dhabi Gate City and will be operational by mid-2020.

The project has been designed by American architectural firm HKS, who designed the tower of Danat Al Emarat in addition to Amar Golden Design.

Mohamed Hamad Al Hameli, the undersecretary of Department of Health Abu Dhabi (DoH), stated, “The Department of Health supports expansions of services and operational facilities that are aligned with the current market needs and in line with the capacity gaps study that was published by DOH recently which identifies the most needed medical services in Abu Dhabi.”

UEMedical CEO and Managing Director Mohammed Ali Al Shorafa Al Hammadi said, “Once the second tower gets completed, the total number of hospital beds will increase to 225 beds covering various specialities.”

“Danat Al Emarat Hospital is considered as a referral centre for high-risk pregnancies, encompassing a full-fledged department of fetal medicine, level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, pediatric surgery and pediatrics subspecialties needed for newborns and older children up to adolescence such as pediatric cardiology, speech-language therapy, pediatric allergy and more,” concluded Al Hammadi.
