Dubai-UAE: 19 June 2021 – A state-of-the-art hospital offering specialised care for spinal, neurosurgical, neurological, orthopaedic and radiosurgery treatments with an advanced cancer centre and neuro-rehabilitation space has opened its doors in Dubai Science Park, strengthening the UAE’s drive for a robust, resilient and world-class healthcare industry.
The AED 700 million Neuro Spinal Hospital and Radiosurgery Centre has 114 beds – four times the capacity of its former premises in Jumeirah.

With advanced diagnosis and robotics, it will provide care across neuroscience, spine, orthopaedics and oncology. Patients in the UAE and abroad will also be able to receive acute and post-acute rehabilitation in Dubai Science Park, a science and healthcare-focused business district that is home to more than 400 companies and 4,000 professionals.
Alongside state-of-the-art equipment and technology required by physicians, the well-designed hospital features open green spaces and gardens to improve the wellbeing of patients, an advanced academic training space, smart patient rooms, a community centre and more.

He added: “The Neuro Spinal Hospital and Radiosurgery Centre reflects our ongoing efforts to enhance Dubai’s medical sector by providing the right business environment and state-of-the-art infrastructure for companies. This hospital will contribute to the growth of the healthcare industry in the UAE and the region and provide residents with access to world-class care, promote medical tourism and enhance the UAE’s position as one of the most advanced countries in the world.”
Prof. Abdul Karim Msaddi, Chairman and Medical Director of Neuro Spinal Hospital, added: “We are proud to bring world-class healthcare services to Dubai and believe our next-generation hospital will be a game-changer for the emirate’s and the region’s medical industry. It will not only significantly increase the availability of specialist neuroscience and radiosurgery treatments and provide better patient care, but help attract and develop local and international talent. Investing in the new centre represents our continued faith in the resilience of the region’s economy, as well as a testament to our ongoing drive towards healthcare innovation in the UAE.”
