ABU DHABI // A multi-speciality hospital in the capital was inaugurated on Thursday in a ceremony that King Mohammed VI of Morocco attended.

Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces, officially opened Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi on Al Maryah Island.

The ceremony was held alongside National Day festivities and came about eight months after the hospital started to accept its first patients in March at its eye clinic.

Khaldoon Al Mubarak, the group chief executive of Mubadala, whose healthcare arm developed the hospital, said it was built in line with the healthcare goals of Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030. He also praised the support of Sheikh Mohammed for the project.

According to the hospital, it has completed 44,000 appointments and 3,000 interventional procedures and surgeries since March.

Twelve institutes at the hospital cover specialities such as neurology, heart and vascular, respiratory and critical care, digestive disease, and emergency medicine.

The hospital accepts insurance only for Thiqa, AXA Star Plus, NAS Administration Services and selected Daman enhanced plans.

The Abu Dhabi hospital is part of the US-based Cleveland Clinic. UAE and Moroccan dignitaries and officials attended the ceremony.
