Al Ain Hospital revamps ICU and adds facilities

Al Ain has completed the redevelopment of its 14-bed intensive care unit (ICU) and has added three new operating theatres, promising the best possible medical service to the people living in the oasis city.

The hospital has also commissioned new diagnostic machines, including a CT scanner for the department.

“These new facilities and services set a standard that is comparable to some of the best health-care institutions in the world,” said a spokesperson of the hospital.

George Jepson, chief executive of the hospital, said the completion of these facilities is part of a larger programme to redevelop the hospital into one of the best health-care institutions in the region and beyond. “This is a crucial milestone for us,” he said.

The new ICU is spacious and modern. It is comprised of 14 enclosed and private cubicles, including two paediatric units, two isolation units and one VIP room. The unit will be headed by a dedicated expert who will be assisted by a multi-disciplinary team of medical experts.

The new operating theatres will also provide specialist operations such as joint replacements and surgeries for sports injuries, Jepson said.

“The most important innovation in the operating theatres is their positioning as a trauma centre, which will have a specialised team of medical experts from all crucial disciplines under a trauma leader to cater to critical cases,” said Jepson.

Professor Stefan Marlovits, director of Trauma Orthopaedics and Sports and deputy medical director of Al Ain Hospital, said the trauma centre has extreme importance since 20 per cent of the deaths in the UAE occur due to accidents.

Al Ain Hospital is owned and operated by Abu Dhabi Health Services Company, which is responsible for all the curative activities of the public and clinics in the capital.
