With the approval of Sheikh Khaled bin Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Chairman of the Abu Dhabi Executive Council, the emirate is poised to establish a medical city dedicated to women’s and children’s health.

The initiative is part of a broader strategy to position Abu Dhabi as a significant healthcare hub. The Department of Health – Abu Dhabi will undertake the project in collaboration with PureHealth, which is owned by the emirate’s sovereign wealth fund ADQ.

Scheduled to open in 2027, the facility will feature 205 beds, including 90 for children and 15 maternity wards. A dedicated team of over 130 doctors and 460 nursing and midwifery specialists will also be on hand.

The medical city will also incorporate the Sheikh Khalifa Medical City (SKMC), establishing a Centre of Excellence (CoE) for pediatric care. It will also house the Corniche Hospital, which is dedicated to women and newborns, along with a rehabilitation facility and a mental health center specifically designed for women and children.

To be more specific, the Centre of Excellence (CoE) will be a 250-bed facility with a team of 200 doctors. It will offer a comprehensive range of services and specialties, including oncology, ophthalmology, neurosurgery, liver, kidney, and bowel transplantation, gastroenterology, and cardiac medicine. The center will also strongly emphasize innovation and research on children’s health.
