American Hospital Dubai

The American Hospital Dubai is a 120 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 new facilities at the American Hospital Dubai include a Dialysis Unit with private rooms; lithotripsy service (treatment of kidney stones); a 10-bed Intensive Care Unit; Expanded Emergency Department staffed with US Board Certified physicians; a 13 bed child-friendly Pediatric Suite; and an Endoscopy Suite offering same-day surgery and private rooms.

Three brand new state of the art machines in the Radiology Department - MRI, Multi Slice CT and Nuclear Medicine - have created the most modern radiology service in the Middle East, with equipment that is faster and capable of conducting a wide range of examinations with a higher degree of detail.

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 equivalent Western training programs, such as those in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom.

The American Hospital Dubai has continued to expand its services in primary and secondary care, plus selective tertiary services, to include Centers of Excellence in Joint Replacement, Diabetes, Cardiology/Cardiac Surgery, Oncology, and Laparoscopic Surgery. In 2004, the size of American Hospital Dubai increased by a further 25 per cent, to meet the growing demand for more personalized services, comfort and convenience, broaden the healthcare services they offer and deepen the level of expertise and care available.

The American Hospital Dubai continues to expand. It is currently working on the second stage of the expansion phase, which includes 180,000 square foot Medical Office Building to offer additional clinic space and services to accommodate our ever expanding number of physicians. This will include a 4 story high building with one complete floor underground plus a 500 space parking garage. This project will be complete by the middle of 2006.

JCIA accreditation

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. It took years of 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.

CAP accreditation

The American Hospital Dubai Medical Laboratory has been accredited by the College of American Pathologists (CAP) in the summer of 2001 and reaccredation in 2003. In addition to the hospital being the first hospital to receive JCIA accreditation, 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).

Total Joints Replacement Center of Excellence

The Total Joints Replacement Center of the American Hospital Dubai is the first of its kind in the Middle East. It is the 4th worldwide after similar centers in Holland, Spain and Britain.

The Center serves physicians throughout the Middle East, Africa and the Mediterranean basin. It provides them with quality training in total joint replacement.

Delivering better cardiac care

The Heart Center at the American Hospital Dubai is the new regional center of excellence for cardiac care, providing US standards of care to patients in the UAE and the region. The Heart Center is capable of treating all types of cardiac conditions and performing advanced interventional and surgical procedures, all with the assurance that the American Hospital Dubai operates to the high standards required by Joint Commission International from the U.S., which has accredited (and re-accredited) the hospital.

The Heart Center comprises two areas -interventional cardiology and surgery. The Center is one of a small, select group of medical centers worldwide, and the only private healthcare institution in the region, capable of undertaking advanced interventional and surgical procedures, such as minimally invasive cardiac surgery and beating heart bypass surgery. The Heart Center is committed to introducing new, advanced techniques such as endoscopic and robotic procedures, as they become available.

State of the art -the cardiac unit
The Heart Center at the American Hospital Dubai is located in a dedicated unit comprising a new, state of the art Cardiac Catheterization laboratory; anew, 6-bed coronary care unit operated by western trained cardiac nursing staff; and a newly renovated operating room dedicated to cardiac surgery.

The unit provides inpatient and outpatient catheterization and interventions, peripheral angiograms and interventions; nuclear medicine -using radioactive isotopes injected into the patient to aid diagnosis; cardiac/carotid/ peripheral sonography; and Lipidology.

Beating heart surgery
Beating heart surgery means that the surgeon does not stop the heart while he is operating, which is safer for the patient, reduces the trauma of the operation and ensures a quicker recovery.

The procedure reduces the risk of kidney and lung failure, as the patient maintains better cognitive function, which in turn reduces the risk of stroke - important issues for high-risk patients who may suffer from other health problems such as kidney failure or breathing disorders.

It is a technically challenging procedure and requires mmense skill from a highly trained and experienced physician -in skilled hands, the beating heart bypass echnique can be used safely for procedures nvolving all areas of the heart, including multi-vessel procedures.

Almost 100 per cent of the American Hospital Dubai Heart Center's surgical procedures will be performed using the beating heart bypass technique and the center will be capable of performing this procedure with high risk patients.
