King’s College Hospital London brings over 175 years of experience and care to the UAE

King’s is a world-renowned teaching hospital in London with over 175 years’ experience, that is now fully present in the UAE. In writing the next chapter in the King’s legacy we are excited to be expanding our UAE footprint with the opening of our very first Dubai based facility therefore, continuing the natural links between the United Kingdom and the Emirates.

Our state-of-the-art Jumeirah based medical centre adds to our flagship Abu Dhabi Medical and Surgical Centre that is already operational. We will also be further expanding our footprint and UAE commitment in May next year with another Dubai medical centre located in the Marina, and then our 100-bed general hospital in Dubai Hills which we are launching in Q1 2019.  We’ve also got a planned phase two for 2020 in the pipeline which is adding another 100 beds to the hospital and 2 additional medical centres.

Ties between King’s College Hospital London and the UAE originate from 1979, when a sizable donation from the late great, His Highness Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan, former President of the UAE, helped establish King’s liver research centre. That centre is now amongst the top three liver specialist centres in the world. In a demonstration of commitment to this unique relationship, Prof. Nigel Heaton who heads up our liver centre in London will be in the UAE every few months visiting local patients and giving them renewed life opportunities in the form of liver transplants pre-operation work up and eventually, liver transplant operations, available from 2019 onwards. Something not readily available here currently.
