A new medical city will soon appear in Abu Dhabi. The project is being developed by the Abu Dhabi Department of Health in conjunction with PureHealth. The plan to expand the healthcare infrastructure within the capital of the UAE was confirmed by Sheikh Khaled bin Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Executive Council. The specialised medical city will deal with women's and children's well-being.

The new facility will be established on the basis of Sheikh Khalifa Medical City, which will become a centre of excellence in the paediatric field. The centre will carry out research and introduce new developments concerning children's healthcare. More than 200 doctors will provide young patients with qualified care in about 29 specialities. The hospital will have 250 beds and will combine oncology, ophthalmology, gastroenterology, cardiology, neurosurgery, and transplantation departments.

In order to provide comprehensive patient care, the medical city will incorporate Corniche Hospital, which offers services for women and newborn babies. The hospital, equipped with a maternity ward, is to be relocated to the area near Sheikh Khalifa Medical City. The new 205-bed establishment will be completed by 2027. The medical team will include 120 doctors, as well as 460 midwives and nurses who specialise in gynaecology, reproductive technology, and women's health in general.

The development will also comprise the Salma rehabilitation complex, as well as a psychiatric care centre for women and children.

The medical city will bring together the best specialists and advanced healthcare facilities of Abu Dhabi. This project will consolidate the emirate's position among the leading healthcare destinations and will boost the further development of specialised facilities.
