Established in 2007, RAK Hospital was built in line with the vision of His Highness Sheikh Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi, Member of Supreme Council and Ruler of Ras Al Khaimah. The hospital was built with two main aims - to bring top-notch medical facilities at the doorstep of RAK and the other UAE residents, and to attract medical tourists to a hospital equipped with the latest technology and finest medical acumen and yet remain affordable.

"We have been consistently adding areas of excellence to our big repertoire of services. Today, the hospital is well-placed to attend to various emergency surgical cases and has a string of successful stories to prove its mettle," says Dr Raza Siddiqui, Executive Director of RAK Hospital.

"The hospital offers a unique and soothing environment to every patient who steps inside, taking care of minor and major concerns that a patient may be facing. With several achievements under its belt, RAK Hospital has been repeatedly recognised on various platforms for its contribution to the UAE's healthcare industry and for its unique and innovative model," adds Dr Siddiqui.

Some of the key centres of excellence at the RAK Hospital include:

Interventional Cardiology and Cardiac Surgery
A forerunner in cardiac surgery, RAK Hospital boasts of a fully equipped 24/7 cardiac catheter Lab and full electrophysiology set-up and is prepared to handle emergency situations and high-risk surgeries with a high success rate. The department offers services such as treatment of angina, arrhythmia, blockage of coronary arteries, valvular heart disease, as well as the full range of heart surgery. Unique in the UAE is the fact that coronary heart surgery at the hospital is performed on 'beating heart' - truly optimising the outcomes.

Bone and Joint Centre
RAK Hospital prides itself in revolutionising the orthopaedic care in the UAE, introducing gyroscope-based knee implantation and the use of stem cell therapy in the treatment of arthritis and other joint related issues. The Centre offers expert diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation for adults and children with bone, joint or connective tissue disorders.

Laparoscopic and Bariatric Surgery
Keeping up with the latest medical trends, RAK Hospital has conducted several laparoscopic and bariatric surgeries, gaining reputation for resolving critical and complicated procedures successfully. Backed by skilled surgeons who are adept at carrying out such procedures, the hospital has gained increasing trust among the local population as well as medical tourists who look to the hospital to provide them excellent surgical expertise.

Neuro and Spine Surgery
Comprising neuro ICU, advanced radiology imaging and neuro-rehabilitation facilities, the Neuro and Spine Centre is fully equipped to deal with several complicated and high-risk surgeries. The Centre further offers round-the-clock emergency stroke management, specialising in diagnosis and management of low backache, neck pain and paralysis, paediatric neurosurgery, diagnosis and management of chronic headaches and neuro-oncology services for brain, skull base and spinal tumours.

RAK Eye Care Centre
The first fully dedicated eye speciality centre in Ras Al Khaimah, the facility is equipped with the latest eye-care technologies and surgical platforms. The centre offers a wide range of procedures and services including cataract surgery, refractive surgery including Femto laser Lasik corrections, glaucoma and vitreo retinal surgeries.

Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation
The hospital's Physiotherapy and Rehabilitation Unit offers diverse treatments to enable people to overcome issues related to mobility, walk and balance disorders, abnormal gait pattern, poor posture and injury among other problems. In addition, the department has a strong focus on resolving challenges pre- and post-surgeries including rehabilitation after cardiac events and procedures.

Swiss Health Checks
Based on RAK Hospital's association with Sonnenhof Swiss Health, the well-known, leading healthcare group from Switzerland, top-quality care and service remain the prime focus. Following those standards, the hospital offers Swiss Health Checks. Many medical tourists avail this comprehensive service that also covers the stay at the hospital, UAE visa and complimentary transportation from Dubai to Ras Al Khaimah and back home. The services include exclusive packages for men and women with several tests and investigations at an affordable cost.  

With as much focus on prevention as on treatment, the hospital is also constantly educating the population on ways to live a healthy life, free of physical or mental stress. Additionally, to ease procedures for foreign patients, RAK Hospital has set up representative offices running in several countries which include Ethiopia, Nigeria, Kenya, Tanzania, Oman and Afghanistan, among others.
