The esteemed hospital will be operated by Medcare, a distinguished healthcare division of Aster DM Healthcare. Our overarching aim is to establish an exceptional healthcare facility that not only caters to the healthcare needs of the UAE populace but also provides a high-end journey for the patients to facilitate their experiences.

Two buildings

It will encompass a cutting-edge healthcare facility boasting a total of 126 beds.
