(MENAFN - Khaleej Times) Spreading across 150,000 square meters, the project, will be constructed in two phases. The new 300-bed teaching hospital is expected to be completed by mid-2017, followed by the medical college in 2019



Dubai Silicon Oasis (DSO), the integrated free zone technology park, on Wednesday announced its plans to host the project Dr Soliman Fakeeh Hospital (DSFH), in an effort to contribute to academic advancement and extend quality medical services to support the local healthcare industry



The agreement was signed at the DSOA headquarters by Dr Mohammed Al Zarooni, vice-chairman and chief executive officer of DSOA, and Dr Mazen Fakeeh, president and chairman of the Board of Dr Soliman Fakeeh Hospital



The University Hospital will focus on family healthcare and patient-centred services, targeting the growing community of residents in DSO as well as neighbouring areas



Equipped to offer secondary and tertiary medical services supported by comprehensive diagnostic centres, the hospital will primarily focus on family and patient-centered services, catering to 700,000 patients per year, with an estimated 40,000 admissions and 20,000 surgical operations. Commenting on this agreement, Dr Mohammed Al Zarooni, said: "The move to host the hospital and the medical university in DSO is in accordance with the directive of His Highness Shaikh Mohammad bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to develop the medical tourism industry in the emirate. The initiative is also a step forward in the implementation of the strategy of the executive office to make Dubai a hub for medical tourism.



The University Hospital, along with the Fakeeh Medical University will look to offer theoretical and practical instruction in varied fields, including medicine, nursing, laboratory sciences, radiology, physiotherapy, dentistry, clinical pharmacy, as well as health policy and management. The project will also include a research and development center for basic sciences in order to develop medical innovations and best practices in the region. "Recent statistics shows that the number of medical tourists receiving treatment is estimated to increase by 15 per cent each year. Additionally, healthcare spending in the UAE is expected to reach Dh40 billion by 2015, while medical tourists are set to cross the 20 million mark for the same period," Al Zarooni said



Dr Fakeeh said: "In our long-standing experience with healthcare services in Saudi Arabia, we have seen, experienced and treated various illnesses that are peculiar to this region. Our guiding motto is to utilise and impart the knowledge gained over the years in the field to bring about a marked improvement in health services for residents here. By extending our reach to Dubai from our new premises at the high-tech park, we hope to provide our quality healthcare to a wider cross-section of GCC residents.
