A Guide to Healthcare Facilities in and Around Emirates Hills

Written by Muhammad Qadeer

Overview

Emirates Hills occupies a prominent spot in Dubai’s ever expansive luxury property market. The exclusive community is home to a collection of splendidly designed residential units that offer unprecedented standards of living.

Part of the larger Emirates Living master community, the society holds the distinction of being one of the first freehold societies in Dubai, and it wasn’t long before it started getting traction from potential buyers all across the globe. The prestigious neighborhood was completed in 2006, and features contemporary and bespoke villas with incredible attention to detail. All the luxurious elements are done subtly – and everything comes together beautifully to create a marvelous living experience.

Today, the community is home to international celebrities, wealthy locals, and acclaimed artists from various walks of life.

Comfort and convenience are omnipresent themes throughout the community – with the opulent neighborhood surrounded by restaurants, cafes, healthcare centers and transit systems. While there are no healthcare facilities in the area itself, there are plenty of options nearby. In this blog, we would look at the different medical facilities close by and what is being offered by each.

 

Mediclinic Meadows

Nestled in the Meadows, Mediclinic Meadows is at a drive of roughly 10 minutes. The healthcare center cum hospital is part of the Mediclinic Group, which enjoys a solid reputation as a reliable, and trustworthy healthcare group.

 

A full-fledged hospital operating round the clock, Mediclinic offers emergency OPD, and various on-site diagnostic solutions under the supervision of foreign qualified specialists. Onsite ambulances are available to transport critical patients to and from the hospital. Inside, the wards and rooms are all fully furnished, with patients having the option to avail VIP rooms.

 

Mediclinic prides itself on providing swift medical attention to cases with minimum waiting time. Following are the fully functional departments at the hospital:

 

  • Dentistry
  • Ear, Nose & Throat (ENT)
  • GP
  • Internal Medicine
  • Obstetrics & Gynecology
  • Orthopaedics
  • Paediatrics
  • Physiotherapy
  • Dermatology
  • Gastroenterology
  • Child Specialist

Noor Al Shefa Clinic

Noor Al Shefa Clinic is located within Springs and can be reached under 10 minutes in a car. The Clinic lives up to its billing of where care comes first by offering reliable and affordable healthcare in the vicinity of Emirates Living. As a multi-specialty clinic, the medical center aims to provide world-class healthcare at reasonable rates and fast turnaround time.

 

Tracing its roots to a modest clinic, the facility follows an altruistic model; where each patient is treated with equal care and respect. The medical center offers discounts and waivers to the needy; and runs loyalty programs for people to receive excellent healthcare at affordable rates. For perspective, they are offering a full body checkup for AED 99.

 

In terms of staff, the bar is extremely high. Qualified specialists and practitioners form the core of the group; while the supporting personnel are trained to treat patients and their loved ones with utmost respect. The only downside here is that they have limited services on offer:

 

  • General Medicine
  • Dental Clinic
  • Internal Medicine

The clinic is ideal for those looking to treat minor ailments of the body. For surgeries or emergencies, one should head over to Mediclinic Meadows or the Saudi German Hospital, which falls next on the list.

 

Saudi German Hospital

The Saudi German Hospital is situated near Al Barsha, and reachable in 10 minutes. Ranked as one of the foremost healthcare centers in the Middle East, the hospital offers multi-disciplinary medical services in care of leading specialists from around the world.

 

SGH-Dubai was formally opened in 2012, and has since grown into one of the largest and most trusted tertiary care hospitals across Dubai. The hospital can accommodate more than 300 patients at one time, and treats patients on a case to case basis – assigning a team of specialists based on the severity of each case. A bit on the expensive side, but the treatment is rest assured of the highest quality.

 

Due to its unflinching spirit in helping humanity, SGH has been the recipient of prestigious awards accreditations; such as, Gold certification for excellence in patient-centric care from Planetree International, USA, and accreditation for the physiotherapy and rehabilitation center by CARF (Commission on Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities International).

 

Another impressive feature about the hospital is the diversity of its workforce; SGH employs staff that speak all major languages to communicate with patients; including English, Arabic, Hindi/Urdu, German, Russian, Turkish, Italian, Afrikaans etc.

The Saudi German Hospital undoubtedly is a one-stop healthcare facility that covers all grounds. The only aspect to consider is the price point – as treatment could prove to be expensive for some.
