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. The new Medcare Royal Hospital, situated close to Dubai International Airport and premium residential communities, will help meet this growing demand. We will soon establish five Centres of Excellence (CoEs) in Cardiology, Neurology, Oncology, Gastroenterology, and Nephrology which will go a long way to offer the most advanced world-class care and access to our best doctors.”

Curating the right environment will go a long way to help patients heal faster and ensure better outcomes in more ways than one.”
