Danat Al Emarat Hospital for Women and Children in Abu Dhabi will embark on a Dh300 million expansion in Abu Dhabi Gate City.
The new building, adjacent to the present hospital, will have six floors, 16 delivery rooms and 100 new patient beds, increasing the total number of hospital beds to 225 by end of 2020, officials said.
Mohammed Ali Al Shorafa Al Hammadi, CEO and managing director of United Eastern Medical Services (UEMedical), and Mariano Gonzalez, CEO of Danat Al Emarat Hospital, broke ground on the new building. Al Hammadi said the decision to expand was taken following a comprehensive market study and also since the number of patients is on the rise.
"With the expansion, UEMedical assets increased to a value of Dh4.2 billion," he added.
100 new physicians, 200 nurses
Gonzalez said the expansion will include three additional high-tech operating rooms, 16 equipped delivery rooms, and additional 30 consultation rooms for the outpatient specialty clinics.
"The expansion will include a bigger pharmacy in the new building and a larger neonatal intensive care unit [Nicu Level III] increasing our capacity to 40 Nicu beds fully-equipped to serve our newborns in line with advanced international standards and protocols. The expansion will be accompanied by an increase in the medical and technical staff, attracting over 500 new employees, including 100 physicians in different specialties and 200 nurses who will join us during the final stages of the constructions project by the third and fourth quarter of 2020."
