Humaid Al Qutami, Director-General of the Dubai Health Authority (DHA) formally inaugurated the 150-bed multi-specialty Aster Hospital located in Al Qusais, in presence of Dr. Azad Moopen, Founder Chairman and Managing Director of Aster DM Healthcare and Abdulla Ahmed Al Habbai, Chairman of Dubai Holdings and Group Chairman of Meraas.

Humaid Al Qutami, Director-General of DHA commented, "Increase in demand for quality health services, rise in demand for in-patient services and influx of medical tourists has necessitated the continued need to support and encourage the development of world-class healthcare delivery system. At DHA, we remain committed to support a conducive environment for investments and encourage the leading healthcare players like Aster to play an active role in shaping the sector. Through the launch of this new hospital, we are glad that Aster DM Healthcare is adding more beds with advanced treatment facilities in UAE."
"The 150-bed Aster Hospital in Al Qusais, with 352 employees will have all the usual specialties with new specialties like neurology also being introduced. Apart from 38 doctors at Aster Mankhool, the new hospital would also tap into Aster DM Healthcare's network of over 2500 doctors to bring-in acclaimed specialists in UAE. Some of these doctors have performed complex surgeries like organ transplants, brain and cardiac surgeries. With high-prevalence of chronic non-communicable diseases like cardiovascular disease and diabetes, an increased availability of tertiary care expertise locally, is the need of the hour," said Dr. Azad Moopen.
"The new hospital is part of Aster DM Healthcare's continued commitment as an integrated healthcare service organisation to cater to the growing needs of the population while making quality healthcare easily available and more accessible for people. We are grateful to DHA for its continued patronage and for being an enabler in our mission. Our approach to care aligns with a universal principle of human beings treating each other well to ensure social progress and betterment, supporting the values of tolerance and co-existence whilst also supporting the happiness agenda," he said.

A combined bed capacity of more than 275 is now being offered by Aster Hospitals, spread across the two locations. In total, Aster DM Healthcare now offers a bed capacity of more than 600 across its facilities in UAE. At Al Qusais, further to facilities including as many as six operation theatres, the hospital features a critical care unit, a neo-natal unit, 24-hour emergency care and a pharmacy, in addition to a range of recovery rooms at scalable price points.
