The American Hospital Dubai is a 143 bed, acute care, general medical/surgical hospital whose mission is to provide high quality American standard healthcare that will meet the needs and exceed the expectations of the people of Dubai, the UAE and the surrounding Gulf States.
The American Hospital Dubai was therefore planned, designed, built and equipped to meet American Standards of healthcare. We operate to these standards, every day, in everything we do for you. All of our physicians who are credentialed at our hospital are North American Board Certified or of equivalent Western training programs, such as those in United States, Canada and the United Kingdom. We have ensured that we have the expertise to fulfill your medical requirements in comfortable and reassuring surroundings.
The hospital is the first in the Middle East to get accredited by the Joint Commission International Accreditation (JCIA) which reassures our continued commitment to the highest quality American Standard of Healthcare in the region. In 2009 the hospital was reaccredited for the fourth time. The hospital’s Medical Laboratory is also accredited and re accredited, last one in 2009 by the College of American Pathologists (CAP), making it the first private laboratory in the Middle East to be accredited by (CAP).
The hospital continues to expand its services in primary and secondary care, plus selective tertiary services, to include Centers of Excellence in - Joint Replacement, Heart, Cancer, and Diabetes.
In 2004, the size of the American Hospital Dubai was increased by a further 25 per cent, to meet the growing demand for more personalized services, comfort and convenience, broadening the healthcare services offered and deepening the level of expertise and care available. The new facilities included a Dialysis Unit with private rooms; lithotripsy service (treatment of kidney stones); a 10-bed Intensive Care Unit; a 10-bed Cardiac Intensive Care Unit, Expanded Emergency Department staffed with American Board Certified physicians; a 13 bed child-friendly Pediatric Suite; and 9 bed Endoscopy Suite offering same-day surgery.
The American Hospital Dubai is the first hospital in the Middle East to be accredited by the Joint Commission International Accreditation (JCIA), a subsidiary of the United States based Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO). The hospital was reaccredited in May 2003 and was further reaccredited again in 2006 and 2009. It took years of committed work and effort to prepare the hospital to meet the standards of the JCIA. Experts from the United States of America visited our hospital and compared day to day activities against their American standards.
The American Hospital Dubai Medical Laboratory has been accredited by the College of American Pathologists (CAP) in the summer of 2001 and was reaccredited in 2003, 2005, 2007 and 2009 hence the hospital is able to announce that it is the first private laboratory in the Middle East to receive this accreditation by the College of American Pathologists (CAP), the United States’ largest association for American Board Certified Laboratory Pathologists and the recognized world leader in laboratory quality assurance.
