Mediclinic City Hospital Becomes a "Non COVID-19" Facility

This Dubai-based hospital has transferred all existing coronavirus patients to other facilities.

Mediclinic City Hospital, one of Mediclinic Middle East’s seven hospitals in the UAE, is now no longer admitting COVID-19 patients.

Whilst the stringent safety precautions in place at the hospital mean that the risk of transmission of COVID-19 between patients is extremely minimal, as an advanced tertiary level facility providing care for particularly vulnerable patients such as cancer sufferers and transplant patients, this decision was made to give patients such as these complete peace of mind.

The Dubai Healthcare City Authority has issued a certificate of satisfactory completion of Mediclinic City Hospital’s conversion to a non COVID-19 “clean” facility to allow continuity of care for patients with non-COVID conditions.

What Mediclinic City Hospital is doing to keep patients safe

Although COVID-19 may still be identified in patients who visit the Emergency or Outpatient departments, these patients will be triaged, isolated and immediately transferred to other units.

The Emergency department has two separate pathways, one for patients with respiratory symptoms and a second for trauma and other emergency cases.

Strict precautions are in place throughout the hospital including spacing of appointments to allow for consultation room sanitisation, social distancing measures in all areas including waiting rooms and elevators, temperature checks at points of entrance for all staff, patients and visitors, hand sanitiser availability, and appropriate PPE for staff and patients.

Mediclinic City Hospital looks forward to providing a full spectrum of clinical services to its patients in a hygienic and completely safe environment.
