Cardiovascular unit set to open in Dubai

A technologically advanced cardiovascular centre is expected to start functioning in Dubai soon. The opening of the centre comes amidst efforts by authorities to make the city a primary hub for healthcare in the region. Patients will be offered health facilities that will be at par with global standards at the center which is being developed collaboratively by a public-private undertaking.

The Dubai Healthcare Authority (DHA) which has been instrumental in proposing the establishment of the centre said that it will play a critical role in carrying out research on cardiovascular issues. According to the findings of the World Health Organisation, cardiovascular ailments are the leading cause of deaths across the globe.

The cardiovascular centre also endeavors to accommodate Dubai’s growing needs. It is estimated that by the year 2030, the city will need over 300 beds for patients suffering from cardiovascular issues.
