Dubai's Rashid Hospital expansion works begin.
Construction work for the expansion of Rashid Hospital 's Trauma and Emergency Centre has begun, according to a Dubai Health Authority (DHA) official.

The expansion will add 160 beds to the facility at a cost of $26.16mn (AED161mn), and is expected to be completed in 12 months.

"After detailed consultation with specialists from the trauma centre and the DHA engineering department, we finalised the design of the expansion, keeping in mind all the requirements needed for a hospital with a high volume of patients," said H.E. Eng. Essa Al Maidoor, director-general of the DHA.

The walls will be manufactured in advance and will be installed directly onsite so that the trauma centre can function as normal while the expansion work takes place, he added.

Last year 166,000 patients were treated at the centre, with demand almost doubling since it began operations in 2006 and treated 86,000 patients in that first year.

The expansion of the trauma centre is the first phase of the Rashid Hospital master plan that was announced in May 2013.

The $490mn (AED3bn) project includes six new specialised health centres, one four-star and another five-star hotel, villas and flats for staff accommodation, a mosque, lake way and landscaping and open spaces for children and families.

The main hospital will be rebuilt and will have three towers. Each tower will be seven storied and will have 300 beds - bringing the total capacity to 900 beds.
