King’s College Hospital London Brings over 175 years of experience and care to the UAE
King’s is a world-renowned teaching hospital in London with over 175 years’ experience, that is now fully present in the UAE. In writing the next chapter in the King’s legacy, we are excited to be expanding our UAE footprint with the opening of our very first Dubai based facility therefore, continuing the natural links between the United Kingdom and the Emirates.
Our state-of-the-art multi-speciality medical centres based in in Jumeirah and Marina add to our flagship Abu Dhabi Medical and Surgical Centre that is already operational. Our 100-bed multi-specialty tertiary hospital launches in January, 2019 in the prestigious Dubai Hills estate. We’ve also got a planned phase two expansion for 2020 in the pipeline, adding another 100 beds to the hospital and 2 additional medical centres.
Ties between King’s College Hospital London and the UAE originate from 1979, when a generous donation from the late great, His Highness Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, former President of the UAE, helped establish King’s liver research centre. That centre is now amongst the top three liver specialist centres in the world.
What makes King’s stand out?
There are three key areas that set us apart:
- Our world leading expertise that we are bringing here – residents will now have access to some of the UK’s top clinicians, locally through King’s. By bringing world leading experts in their field to the UAE every few weeks, we are able to offer patients world-class treatment and procedures in high prevalence areas.
- The enhanced patient experience we are offering – and by that we mean our patients and their family, will receive the best of British care, treated with the utmost dignity, respect and confidence. They truly are our number one priority.
- Our evidence-based transparent healthcare approach – King’s places a huge focus on leveraging scientific data to support your medical care and treating what is required. Our doctors are measured by the quality of care they provide, meaning unnecessary over-testing or over-prescribing is not tolerated.
