The first hospital to open in Dubai Healthcare City, The City Hospital is a 210-bed facility that can accommodate patients with a vast range of needs. Designed by Ellerbe Becket, an AECOM Company, the hospital is designed to provide the highest quality of care now and in the future with centers in cardiology, radiology, gynecology, trauma and endocrinology.

A public atrium organizes all the planning blocks (inpatient, outpatient, parking, service) to create a comprehensive building. Clinics are adjacent to the atrium for ease of access, orientation and wayfinding. The typical inpatient floor is planned for staff efficiency, operational flexibility, and patient and family privacy, as well as access to natural light and views.

The project is unique in its blending of healthcare and hospitality. It offers patients and families access to facilities typically found in luxury hotels: a heated indoor swimming pool, spa, sauna, Jacuzzi and gym.

Another unique aspect of the project is the hospital’s VIP floor. With a separate entrance, elevators and valet service, this floor consists of 12 suites that are designed and furnished to provide the highest levels of comfort.
