It will feature 50 clinics, ten emergency care rooms, 30 clinical research spaces, 60 IV rooms, and five radiotherapy rooms, as well as a total of 116 beds.
The new hospital will also comprise 19 gardens, which are intended to provide a healing environment for patients and spaces for families to gather.
It will offer a full spectrum of services, from diagnosis to comprehensive treatment, all under one roof, with certain treatments being available to patients in their homes.
In addition, HBRCH will be a hub for research and clinical trials, striving to improve patient outcomes through evidence-based care.
This initiative is expected to propel Dubai to the forefront of healthcare innovation, particularly in the field of oncology.
Stantech, known for its sustainable architectural practices, has been commissioned for the hospital’s construction.
The hospital aims to improve healthcare service delivery by transitioning from traditional inpatient care to a model that emphasises outpatient and home-based care.
Rashid Al Maktoum said: “The project is an important addition that supports the goals of Dubai Social Agenda 33 on establishing the most efficient and quality health system that meets the best international standards. The health of the individual and society is a priority to which we attach all care and attention, and with concerted efforts of public and private sectors, we are moving forward on a march aimed at providing the best forms of health care in the highest international practices.”
