The new luxury suites, called Jasmine and Orchid suites, are on the fourth floor, named Al Reef.

On May 14, five super deluxe Orchid suites and 11 deluxe Jasmine suites opened their doors to Emirati patients. Each unit has a flat screen, smart curtains and a kitchen.

Engineer Mohamed Hassan Al Zaabi, executive director, facilities development and maintenance at Abu Dhabi Health Services (Seha), said: “Seha aims at covering the increasing need for medical services in Abu Dhabi. That is why the new section at the Abu Dhabi Corniche Hospital have been equipped with the latest medical (apparatus).”

“The aim of this project is to make patients feel like they are at home. We have endeavoured to infuse ingenuity in the interiors to help patients forget that they are in a hospital,” said Peter Toombs, general service manager of Corniche Hospital. “As we all know, an appealing environment speeds up the recovery process.”

The inaugural day saw four patients admitted in the Orchid suites. “The new luxury suites are a huge improvement on the private wards of the past,” said Mai Mohamed, a new mother who was delighted to be admitted to an Orchid suite. “The old rooms were comfortable but lacked luxurious features. Now the interiors are plush with an aesthetic touch everywhere.

“Like me, many Emirati women will be happy to hear about this new development.”
