December 17, 2019 Posted by: Kidzapp Health & Nutrition

Al Jalila Children’s Specialty Hospital, the first and only children’s hospital in UAE, marked its third year of operations in November and announced that it had received around 100,000 young patients since its opening in 2016. Its 24/7 Emergency Department witnessed 22,000 visits for the same period while 3700 surgeries were conducted out of which around 300 were complex heart surgeries.

Three Years of achievements

In 2019, Al Jalila Children’s added 10 new speciality services, allowing more young patients to have access to premium paediatric healthcare. The state-of-the-art medical facility treated 8.5% more children as compared to 2018, while its mental health inpatient ward, the only ward of its kind in Middle East, received 22 cases since it opened in Jan of this year.

A major highlight of its medical excellence, Al Jalila Children’s successfully conducted 4 kidney transplants for 4 children who were in desperate need of a new kidney, while a total of 3100 dialysis sessions were conducted in the past 3 years.

Dr. Mohamad Al Awadhi, COO of Al Jalila Children’s said: “Day after day, Al Jalila Children’s is proving to be a pivotal hub for paediatric medicine excellence in the region. Our strategy focusses on growing, and constantly developing, our three main pillars – Medical Excellence, Research, and Education.”

“With more than 10 new speciality clinics opened in 2019, including the oncology clinic, in addition to the Genomics Centre of Excellence, we are slowly bridging the gap of demand on some of the most crucial paediatric specialities for children in UAE and the region,” Dr. Al Awadhi added.

Doctors and Education

On the educational side, Al Jalila Children’s projected very encouraging indicators. Through their innovative ‘PaedsX’ programme, around 50 educational events were organized, with over 2000 medical practitioners attending the symposiums. Furthermore, the medical landmark saw more than 1,500 students from 40 schools introduced to the hospital.
