Dubai Health Authority (DHA) just announced that it hired an additional 1600 medical staff in 2014 bringing the total workforce to over 11,000. This increase has been fuelled by the continued expansion of the healthcare sector in the UAE.
The new children's hospital will be opened this year and the Trauma Centre expanded allowing the DHA to treat more patients. Over 1 million patients were treated in DHA facilities last year.
Landmark, the retail and hospitality company of Dubai also intends to expand its iCare Clinic network which provides affordable primary care across Dubai.
