Residents of New Dubai and Jumeirah are now guaranteed prompt medical attention following Medcare Hospital’s launch of a fully operational, round-the-clock emergency service from its Safa Park base.

The new facility has the capacity to deal with most types of emergencies as well as minor home, road and industrial accidents. Medcare’s ER department is staffed with a highly professional team of doctors and nurses who are trained to respond quickly to such situations.

Dr. Sadik Kodakat, Executive Medical Director, Medcare Hospital, said: “The lack of high quality adult and Pediatric emergency services in New Dubai and on Sheikh Zayed Road was a big factor in the opening of this all-important service, but it is also about serving our community and letting people know we are at hand to help them day or night.”

Ala Atari, Chief Operating Officer, Medcare Hospital said: “Since we launched our ER department, we have attended to around 35 cases. With our team of specialists working round the clock and modern ambulance facility, we hope to help people who need urgent medical attention. Our adult and neonatal intensive care services match all international standards.”

Dubai residents can also now benefit from Medcare Hospital’s world-class Maternity, Pediatric, ENT care and comprehensive diagnostic and medical laboratory services.

The medical team is drawn from Europe, North America, and the Subcontinent who are equipped to handle routine emergencies as well as complex medical, surgical and trauma cases.

The 60-bed hospital has a relaxing ambience with elegant artworks and wireless internet connections in patient rooms.

Other services at the hospital include cardiology, cosmetology, cosmetic surgery, dermatology, dentistry, endocrinology, emergency medicine, general surgery, nephrology and dialysis, ophthalmology, orthopaedics and trauma, physiotherapy and pulmonology.

Dr. Kodakat said: “Medcare hospital is managed by Eurohealth Systems, a division of Dr. Moopen’s Group, which has been providing quality healthcare in the UAE for more than 19 years. The Group recently received an accolade from the President of India recognizing the quality standard of its 300 - bed (MIMS) Malabar Institute of Medicals Sciences hospital, based in Kerala.
