Whether you simply fall ill or have a serious accident that requires medical attention while traveling, it is important to know where the nearest medical facilities can be found. Therefore we have provided a list of the important hospitals in the UAE as well as medical centres and clinics that would be suited to providing medical treatment. 

While there are some differences in the provision of healthcare in the different emirates, emergency treatment can be obtained from public hospitals in all emirates. Most emirates require health or travel insurance for tourists, emergency medical treatment is provided free of charge, but it is important to know that once the life threatening conditions have been treated, any further stay in hospital will be chargeable.Public Hospitals

Hospitals in Dubai

Public Hospitals     

In Dubai, public hospitals are owned and administered by either the Dubai Health Authority (DHA), or by the UAE Ministry of Health (MOH). Residents can apply for a Health Card, which enables them to avail of public health services at highly subsidized rates. Public healthcare facilities in Dubai are generally of excellent standard, although they can be quite busy during peak hours. If you are involved in a road traffic accident, you will most probably be taken to Rashid Hospital, which receives the majority of trauma cases in Dubai. If the Rashid is very busy, trauma cases are generally received by the Dubai Hospital.

Dubai Health Authority
Hatta Hospital is a 123-bed multi-specialty hospital located in Hatta city centre. The new health facility is an addition to the DHA’s network of hospitals and health centres aimed at providing a people-focussed health Care in the emirate of Dubai.
