Hospitality Care Center has 88 dedicated rooms to treat Covid-19 patients.
The Dubai Health Authority (DHA) on Tuesday opened a Hospitality Care Center, which specializes in treating infectious diseases.
The center is located in the Dubai Industrial Zone and has three floors, including 88 rooms dedicated to treating Covid-19 patients, from general to critical.
The arts center has very specialized clinics, pharmacies, laboratories, radiology and follow-up services and is equipped with the latest critical care equipment and technology to support its operation.
It is designed in such a way that it is flexible and has the potential to expand to 170 rooms should the need arise.
The 24×7 facility has begun accepting more Covid-19 cases. Patients will receive the best possible care under the management and supervision of Rashid Hospital, as the facility is directly linked to the hospital.
At the inauguration of the post, Humaid Al Qutami, Director-General of the DHA, emphasized that the authority was not trying to do all that the current and future phases required in terms of communicable diseases, especially the global Covid-19 challenge.
He further confirmed that since the outbreak, the authorities have been able to use all their resources to address this challenge, and at the same time, work to increase the capacity of its medical facilities, in anticipation of whatever happens.
“In the future, this will be an international center focusing on the treatment of infectious diseases, and at the same time, it will be a state-of-the-art laboratory for radiation testing and diagnosis as well as an advanced center for research and studies on infectious diseases,” he added.
