Abu Dhabi Private Hospitals Declared Covid 19 Cases Free

 Abu Dhabi Department of Health has declared all private hospitals in the emirate free of Covid-19 cases.


Sheikh Khalifa Medical City (SKMC) currently has zero Covid-19 cases and is to soon resume as specialised healthcare services provider to non-coronavirus patients.


Al Rahba Hospital is now designated as dedicated centre for infectious diseases, including Covid-19 patients.


The emirate's Department of Health said Covid-19 cases hospital admission will be limited to Al Rahba in Abu Dhabi, Al Ain Hospital in Al Ain City and other field hospitals across the emirate.


SKMC recorded a notable decline in coronavirus infections, which the department attributed to increased number of vaccinations and precautionary and preventive measures at the hospital to limit the virus spread.


“National efforts uniting the public and private sectors were instrumental in Sheikh Khalifa Medical City effectively dealing with the pandemic and allowing them to continue their operations safely and effectively," said Dr Jamal Mohammed Alkaabi, undersecretary of the Department of Health.


Al Rahba Hospital has been renovated and expanded to increase its bed capacity. The hospital now has over 250 beds, with 140 reserved for acute care, 37 for the intensive care unit and 73 assigned to surge care.
