Perkins Eastman | Al Maktoum Accident And Emergency Hospital

Al Maktoum Accident and Emergency Hospital

Dubai, United Arab Emirates
Perkins Eastman was selected by the Dubai Health Authority to design the most sophisticated Accident and Emergency Hospital of its kind in the UAE. The design creates a facility capable of providing immediate care for minor- to high-level trauma accidents and emergencies.

The 300-bed, 85,000 sm (914,000 sf) facility includes two five-story nursing unit wings with a mix of private, two-bed, and four-bed rooms and extensive critical care services. A separate three-story clinical services component includes an emergency department capable of handing up to 70,000 visits annually, along with a surgical suite with 18 operating theaters and recovery. A rooftop helipad and an ambulance receiving area are directly linked to a surgical trauma operating suite and a diagnostic imaging unit with MRI, CT, and X-ray capabilities. Additional spaces for diagnostic imaging, surgery, endoscopy, lab functions, and an outpatient clinic are also included in the facility’s design.

The highly integrated design provides significant flexibility and a focus on patient care and family needs by utilizing the most advanced medical technology, international design, and healthcare planning solutions available.
