Aldar to build new world class healthcare facility in Al Reem Island

Posted on 17th April 2015

Abu Dhabi-based Aldar Properties, a leading real estate firm, is set to bring world-class healthcare facilities to Al Reem Island in the UAE Emirate with a 100,000-square feet day care centre.


Burjeel Day Care Centre, managed by Abu Dhabi's premier private healthcare facility Burjeel Hospital, at the Gate Towers in Shams Abu Dhabi will provide residents with a broad range of clinical services 24 hours a day, seven days a week, according to news reports in Trade Arabia.

It will house 50 consulting suites, two operating theatres, four endoscopy suites, eight recovery rooms, and eight dialysis chairs. The centre will have direct access from the Gate, Sun and Sky apartments and Sky Office as well as existing retail facilities at Boutik Sun & Sky which currently houses Waitrose, Leopolds of London, Café Macondo and Italianissimo.

The day care centre will include a unique and specialised wellness centre and cosmetic and anti-aging clinic, as well as a pharmacy, café, and retail shop.

Talal Al Dhiyebi, chief development officer at Aldar Properties, said: “Al Reem Island is one of the most popular residential communities in Abu Dhabi. Yet there is strong demand from residents for good-quality healthcare within a convenient location. Burjeel Day Care Centre will provide world-class healthcare services not just to Gate Tower residents, but to the whole of Al Reem Island.”

Dr Shamsheer Vayalil, managing director at VPS Healthcare, said: “This is part of our commitment to provide exemplary medical care for every guest and expand our first-class healthcare network to serve the emirate. This expansion will raise the bar of healthcare provision to higher levels not only in Abu Dhabi but also in the region. Burjeel is keen to spread and extend ‘the art of healing’ to neighbourhoods where there is a demand for quality healthcare.”

The Burjeel Day Care Clinic will offer a wide range of treatments including alternative medicine, anaesthesia, bariatric surgery, cardiology, dentistry, dermatology and cosmetology, diabetes and diagnostic imaging, among others.
