Up to six specialised units will be built as part of 300-bed healthcare facility for women, children.
Plans have been revealed for a new 300-bed women and children’s hospital at a cost of $205 million.
The ‘Danat Al Emarat’ hospital will be built by United Eastern Medical Services (UEM) and designed by US-based HKS.
The hospital will offer “unrivalled levels of care, comfort and luxury”, according to UEM CEO Mohammed Ali Al Shorafa.
The first phase of the project is scheduled to complete by 2011 and will be the first all-digital hospital in the capital.
Danat Al Emarat will have up to six specialized units to help nurture and take care of the mother-to-be. The hospital will also provide a C-Section Centre that accommodates patients who require caesarean sections.
The Neonatal ICU Center will work in conjunction with the Pediatric ICU, which focuses specifically on children aged two to twelve months but can also care for younger and older children.
