Hospitality Care Centre has 88 dedicated rooms to treat Covid-19 patients

The Dubai Health Authority (DHA) on Tuesday opened a Hospitality Care Centre, specialised in treating infectious diseases.

The centre is located in the Dubai Industrial Zone and consists of three floors, which include 88 dedicated rooms for the treatment of Covid-19 patients, from normal to critical cases.

The state-of-the art centre has highly specialised clinics, pharmacy, laboratory, radiology and follow-up services and is equipped with the latest critical care equipment and technology to support its functioning.

It is designed in a manner that provides flexibility and the possibility of expanding it to 170 rooms in case the need arises.

The 24x7 centre has already begun to receive a number of Covid-19 cases. Patients will receive high-quality care under the management and supervision of Rashid Hospital, since the centre is directly affiliated with the hospital.

During the inauguration, Humaid Al Qutami, Director-General of the DHA, stressed that the authority spares no effort in fulfilling all the requirements of the current and upcoming stages with regard to infectious diseases, specifically the global Covid-19 challenge.

He also confirmed that since the beginning of the pandemic, the authority has been able to harness all its capabilities to meet this challenge, and at the same time, it has worked to increase the capacity of its medical facilities, in anticipation of any developments.

"In future, this will be an international centre specialised in treating communicable diseases, and at the same time, it will be a highly advanced laboratory for radiology and diagnostic tests as well as an advanced centre for epidemiological research and studies,” he added.
