Al Jalila Foundation, a member of Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives, is establishing the first comprehensive cancer charity hospital in Dubai ‘Hamdan Bin Rashid Cancer Charity Hospital’ bringing together leading expertise to manage prevention, diagnosis and treatment under one roof.
The hospital, named after the late Sheikh Hamdan Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, will provide best-in-class outpatient, ambulatory and diagnostic services as well as inpatient and surgical services in a nurturing environment that prides itself on personalised patient care.
In the UAE, approximately 4,500 new cases of cancer are reported in a year and as per studies it is the third leading cause of deaths. Patients will be accepted from anywhere in the United Arab Emirates and the medical services provided would either be free of charge or highly subsidised to alleviate the financial burden of patients who are unable to afford quality healthcare.
Al Jalila Foundation is investing AED 750 million in the first fully modular-built hospital in the region. The 250-bed hospital will be built in 2 phases with phase 1, including 150 beds, expected to be completed in 2 years.
It is only with donor support that Al Jalila Foundation can reach its goal of establishing a comprehensive cancer care facility that will provide outstanding care and become a beacon of hope to patients and their families.
