Stantec-designed Prime Healthcare hospital breaks ground in Dubai

The specialty project will offer advanced and accessible care to the local community


Prime Healthcare Group recently broke ground on a Stantec-designed specialty hospital at Dubai Healthcare City. A transformative addition to this health and well-being destination, the nine-story, 33,000 square meters, 150-bed facility will offer advanced non-invasive, diagnostic, and interventional procedures, and specialized rehabilitation. The hospital will be home to three centers of excellence—the Marie Curie Cancer Centre, Heart Care Center of Excellence, and the Lung Care Centre of Excellence.  

While the new hospital will offer specialized diagnosis, care, and treatment of complex heart, lung, and cancer conditions, it will also offer services in urology, neurosurgery, spinal surgery, plastic and reconstructive surgery, gynecology, gastroenterology, and will employ leading-edge treatment technologies-specialized robotic surgery, hybrid operating rooms, and hybrid catheterization labs.

The hospital will include three verticals for medical, radiation and surgical purposes. The three centers of excellence are the Marie Curie Center which will offer advanced radiological services for cancer care to patients.

The Heart Care Center of Excellence will offer a range of invasive, non-invasive diagnostic procedures, as well as interventional procedures for coronary disease, valve disorders, structural heart disorders, and arrhythmias. The center will offer a cardiac health management program with advanced technologies for the diagnosis and treatment of cardiac conditions. The hospital would also offer cardiac rehabilitation services in addition to electrophysiology, cardiac physiology, and complex cardiac interventions.

The Lung Care Center of Excellence would address all aspects of diagnosis, management, and treatment of respiratory conditions. Advanced diagnostic and therapeutic techniques would be available within the unit, including endobronchial ultrasound, bronchoscopy with high-volume lavage, transbronchial lung biopsy, and whole lung lavage.

Stantec is providing architectural design, healthcare planning, interior design, structural engineering, MEP (mechanical, electrical, and plumbing) engineering, landscape architecture, parking and traffic consulting, utility consulting, and construction supervision.
