Health authority plans to build 200-bed children’s hospital

Dubai Health Authority has invited selected contractors to prequalify for a contract to build its Al-Jalila Children’s Specialty Hospital.

The health authority plans to build the 200-bed hospital adjacent to the Al-Wasl Hospital, close to Dubai Creek on Oud Metha road.

The hospital will have medical wards, surgeries, a 370-seat auditorium, underground parking for 200 cars, and outside parking for 270 cars.

The total built-up area is 105,000 square metres.

Its facilities include units for mental health, rehabilitation, oncology, nephrology and a heart centre.

The UAE is working on a number of hospital projects.

In Abu Dhabi, government-controlled investment vehicle Mubadala Development Company is now tendering Cleveland Clinic and Tawam Hospital, and in April the Public Works Ministry awarded the local MCM Group a AED800m contract to build the Sheikh Khalifa Specialist Hospital in the emirate of Ras al-Khaimah (MEED 23:4:09).
