A 126-bed hospital, which integrates advanced healthcare systems with premium hospitality experiences, has opened in Dubai's Al Qusais area.

Spanning 335,000 square feet, the Medcare Royal Speciality Hospital offers over 30 specialties under one roof.

It was inaugurated on Thursday by Sheikh Rashid Bin Hamdan Al Maktoum, who was joined by Aster DM Healthcare's senior executives and dignitaries from the government, ministries and health authorities.

The hospital has brought in 83 doctors with local and international expertise and is equipped with advanced digital technology for enhanced patient care and management, including AI-enabled diagnostic solutions, remote monitoring and consultation, electronic medical records (EMR) and real-time disease management.

"With world-class healthcare institutions bringing global talent and expertise to serve the evolving needs of the regional population, we are glad to present Medcare Royal Specialty Hospital to the citizens of the world," said Sheikh Rashid.

Dr. Azad Moopen, Founder Chairman of Aster DM Healthcare, added, "With the evolving demographics in the UAE, there is an increasing demand for specialized and personalized care among the affluent population. The strategic location, offering easy connectivity to the MENA region and Africa for over a billion people, is making Dubai an emerging destination for medical tourism."

Located near the Dubai International Airport, it's the fourth Medcare Hospital in Dubai and the fifth in the UAE, further enhancing its network of healthcare facilities including 18 premium Medcare Medical Centres.

It currently offers Cardiac Sciences, Neurosciences, Gynecology & Obstetrics, Internal Medicine, Endocrinology, Pulmonology & Sleep Lab, Rheumatology, Nephrology & Dialysis Unit, Paediatrics, Neonatology, Oncology, Psychiatry, Geriatrics, ENT & Skull Base, Dermatology & Aesthetics, Orthopaedics, Urology, Gastroenterology & Endoscopy Unit, Dentistry, General Surgery, Vascular Surgery, Bariatric Surgery, Plastic Surgery, Anaesthesiology, Home Care, Emergency Care, Radiology, Physiotherapy & Rehabilitation.

The hospital will soon introduce quaternary care services such as organ transplantation, radiation oncology, and robotic surgery. This will be Aster DM Healthcare’s 10th hospital in the UAE, in addition to 103 clinics and 258 pharmacies.

Alisha Moopen, Managing Director and Group CEO, Aster DM Healthcare GCC stated, "Taking off on our promise We’ll Treat You Well, we have designed Medcare Royal to provide a holistic, multi-sensory healing experience."

"We believe that it is when you are unwell that you need to be pampered - a chef who understands your idea of comfort food, a musician who plays to heal, a perfumer who creates fragrances that soothe you, a floral designer who places bright, colourful smiles in your room every day, a housekeeper who will use only the finest linen for you to rest on, and most importantly, a team of outstanding, empathetic doctors and nurses. Curating the right environment will go a long way to help patients heal faster and ensure better outcomes in more ways than one," she added.

Medcare is also enhancing healthcare provision at the new hospital through extensive digitalization, facilitating seamless and flexible care and patient management.

This includes features like instant appointment booking through various digital channels, as well as allowing patients to manage their appointments instantly from their smartphones.

TELEMEDCARE services offer remote consultations with doctors from the comfort of patients' homes. The hospital also implements AI-enabled diagnostics and a real-time disease management programme to monitor lifestyle diseases effectively.

Dr. Shanila Laiju, Group CEO, Medcare Hospitals & Medical Centre said, "We are combining top-notch clinical excellence with the best-in-class service experience, an unparalleled blend which will provide the best healing experience to every patient. As our flagship hospital, Medcare Royal is set to revolutionize healthcare delivery in the region."

The facility takes a holistic approach to well-being that includes digital innovations catering to non-medical needs, a gourmet fine dining experience, signature aromatherapy, and luxury rooms equipped with modern amenities.

The hospital will also provide well-trained, certified service professionals to patients, ensuring they receive a royal experience.
