Moorfields Eye Hospital Dubai unveils 20% expansion, equipped with the latest technology

Dubai, April 25, 2024: Moorfields Eye Hospital Dubai, the first international branch of the prestigious 200-year-old Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust in London, is proud to announce the successful completion of a significant expansion project, now enhanced by a ceremonial ribbon cutting. This expansion increases the hospital's capacity by 20% and enhances accessibility to specialised eye care in Dubai and the wider region.

On April 23rd, the hospital celebrated this milestone with a ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by key figures, including Dr. Marwan Al Mulla, CEO of the Health Regulation Sector at Dubai Health Authority (DHA), and Mr. Allae Omar Almanini, CFO of Dubai Healthcare City Authority (DHCA). This event underscored the hospital's commitment to excellence and collaboration with leading health authorities.

The expansion brings a transformative upgrade to the hospital's facilities. The newly extended space includes 40 consultation rooms for adults and children to provide a complete range of eye care consultations by teams of dedicated subspecialists. This includes consultant ophthalmology, optometry, orthoptic, and nursing services, all fitted with the latest technology. Moreover, the in-house pharmacy has been significantly expanded, and multiple photography investigation rooms have been equipped with state-of-the-art diagnostic and imaging tools. This growth complements two operating theatres, a laser refractive suite, multiple treatment rooms, and an optical shop, reinforcing the hospital’s commitment to offering the full spectrum of world-leading eye care services for children and adults.

Dr. Marwan Al Mulla, CEO of the Health Regulation Sector at Dubai Health Authority (DHA), commented on the expansion: “The private health sector in Dubai is witnessing a remarkable and rapid development, whether in terms of its modern technologies and equipment, or its expansion, spread, and diversification of its specializations. He stressed that this is what the Authority encourages and is working on, to enhance meeting the growing societal demand for medical services, and to support the active health tourism movement that characterizes Dubai.”

Dr. Al Mulla expressed the Dubai Health Authority's appreciation for the expansion witnessed by Moorfields Eye Hospital Dubai, noting that it represents an important addition to the range of specialised medical services available in Dubai.

Mr. Elhadi Hassan, Managing Director, emphasised the importance of the expansion: “This significant development in our facilities represents our proactive approach in adapting to the evolving healthcare landscape in Dubai and the wider region. We aim to continuously meet the growing demand for specialised eye care services, staying true to our mission of providing excellence in eye care.”

Dr. Ammar Safar, Chief Medical Officer and Consultant Ophthalmologist, spoke on the enhanced medical services: “The expanded facilities enable us to offer a broader range of department-based, subspecialised ophthalmic services, with the introduction of new dedicated departments and clinical services utilising the latest technologies. This expansion is a testament to our commitment to maintaining the highest standards of care across all our dedicated specialities as we continue to deliver exceptional, world-leading eye care services.”

Ms. Maha Aboughali, Business Development and Marketing Director, highlighted the benefits for patients: “This expansion significantly enhances our commitment to deliver exceptional, patient-centered care. Given increased demand locally, regionally, and internationally for our services, coupled with the recently expanded insurance networks we have secured, our key stakeholders—our patients—will benefit the most. Our new comfortable, warm enhanced environment aligns with our commitment to making our top-tier services more accessible to our diverse patient base.”

In line with its vision of continuous improvement and excellence in eye care, Moorfields Eye Hospital Dubai aims to continue to redefine the standards of eye care and excellence in patient experience in the region, further solidifying the hospital's position as a leader in the field.
