Message from the Executive Team

Dear colleagues and business partners, 

At the launch of Phase 2 on March 25, 2015, we stood humbled. Humbled to be able to witness – live, the building of credibility and the display of teamwork.

His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, officially launched Phase 2, unveiling our plans that will complete the continuum of care Dubai Healthcare City offers. 

The word teamwork is used ever so frequently but few places does it assume such an inspiring form than at events of such scale.

Scale isn’t only about size. The launch event was significant, momentous and notable.

The Phase 2 expansion of DHCC, occupying 22 million square feet, will be an integral part of Dubai’s health for its residents and its economy. In the years to come, people – of all age groups – living in the country and visitors will be able to reap the benefits of unique water-facing rehabilitation and wellness concepts covering 3.3 million square feet. Our expansion will boost wellness and medical tourism.

Teamwork. Without this integral driving force, we couldn’t have delivered what we did or what we will.
