Often many specialist healthcare providers offer a one-stop destination for all medical needs. However, the overlap of expertise cannot guarantee a patient has access to a professional that could provide dedicated treatment and solutions. In this regard, Medcare Hospitals and Medical Centres, one of the UAE's well-established healthcare network and a top JCI-accredited healthcare provider, caters to patients' needs and well-being through an internationally-certified team of experts and state-of-the-art facilities. To date, Medcare has a total of 16 medical centres across both cities -15 in Dubai and one in Sharjah - with each serving prime communities across the city. Out of these, a number of them are speciality centres, while the rest are multispeciality clinics.

Children can be nervous and a visit to a healthcare facility is bound to leave them feeling anxious.

Its paediatric speciality centre also features a highly advanced facility with a comprehensive range of outpatient and day care services that cover both medical and surgical requirements.
