3 More Field Hospitals To Open Up Across Abu Dhabi and Dubai


Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (SEHA), the UAE’s largest healthcare network, has established three field hospitals in the UAE across Abu Dhabi and Dubai.

The initiative comes under the directive of HH Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi in a move to help support the healthcare sector in combating Covid-19.

The third field hospital in Dubai aims to be ready by the end of April and is located in Dubai Parks and Resorts. It will have the capacity to hold 1,200 patients and 200 healthcare professionals.

The hospitals will not only strengthen the country’s healthcare sector in its current battle against Covid-19, but will also prepare it for any future challenges.

HH Sheikh Khalid bin Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, member of the Abu Dhabi Executive Council and Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Executive Office, visited the two field hospitals located in Abu Dhabi to evaluate the facilities and inspect its readiness.

14 drive-through testing facilities were rolled out across the nation in a bid to combat Covid-19 and was another initiative introduced by SEHA. And in Dubai, HH Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Crown Prince of Dubai, inaugurated a new field hospital at Dubai World Trade Centre that will houses 3,000 beds, including those for 800 intensive care patients.
