New 740+ Bed Hospital Opening in Abu Dhabi

A massive new hospital will open its doors in Abu Dhabi next month.

The Shaikh Shakhbout Medical City (SSMC) is a 741-bed, 30,000 square-metre hospital, which will be based Al Mafraq, Abu Dhabi. The facility will replace the previous 380-bed Al Mafraq Hospital.

Alongside treating up to 741 inpatients at a time, the hospital also expects to treat over 2,500 outpatients per day. The purpose of the hospital is to take care of patients from across the Gulf Region.

The hospital is due to open its doors on November 3rd.

Kaneez Nabijee, CEO at Doctor Expat welcomed the opening of the new hospital. “It feels like every month another brand new medical facility is opening in the UAE. It is no wonder why we are inundated with requests from Doctors, Nurses and other Healthcare staff who are keen to relocate here to work in these cutting-edge facilities and to take advantage of the tax-free income.

“Those who wish to work in hospitals such as the new Shaikh Shakhbout Medical City will need to have their Health Authority Abu Dhabi (HAAD) License in place before employers will even consider them for roles. If you are daunted by the registration process, or just want help so that you can get through it as quickly as possible, please do get in touch with my team as we will be able to assist you through the whole process. Once you have your license, we will also be able to assist you in finding a job.”
