Finally, a hospital strictly for kids – Al Jalila Childrens Specialty Hospital

Finally, a hospital strictly for kids!

Excellence in healthcare is a national pillar of the UAE 2030 vision, hence, it has become imperative that we all address the notable gap in paediatric medicine. That is why the leadership of Dubai decided to have a hospital fully dedicated to treat children and adolescents as a way of bridging the gap in paediatric medicine.

Children are not young adults

Most parents have the same misconception, that whenever their kids get sick, they tend to take them to the nearest clinic or to a general hospital where all systems are designed to cater for adults. However, they forget that children are very different from adults mentally and physically, which is why paediatric medicine was created in the first place! Children’s hospitals have a much better understanding of how to treat children and adolescents. They know when tests are needed and when not because a simple blood test can be a big deal for any child.

Most families face two main issues, when it comes to children’s health, - having to go to several locations/clinics to do the necessary tests and x-rays, and not getting a clear answer or being drowned with different opinions from different doctors. Some parents just don’t know what to do with your child anymore.

That is why Al Jalila Childrens Specialty Hospital has everything under one roof, as they currently have six centres of excellence – Heart, Kidney, Neurosciences, Mental Health, Critical Care, and Genomics, and over 29 clinics that offer healthcare across various clinical specialities. Their treatment philosophy is based on the principle of 360-degree-care which means that every patient is seen by a team of physicians if required to ensure the right diagnosis and treatment. This gives parents a clear and transparent answer to all their questions related to their child’s condition, in addition to a comprehensive treatment plan.

When your child is too young to tell you what’s wrong….Al Jalila Children’s Specialty Hospital can!

Al Jalila Children’s handpicked some of the most experienced physicians and nursing staff from children’s hospitals around the world to create a specialised clinical team. The way their doctors examine children is different: for example, the x-rays are taken differently, blood tests, injections, surgeries, medicine prescriptions, it’s all done differently, with so much consideration, patience and efficiency. They simply understand children better!

The medical team always goes the extra mile to ensure that they provide the best possible treatment for each case…. simple or complicated. The doctors firmly believe that if health issues are not treated properly in childhood, it can get complicated in adulthood. That is why at Al Jalila Children’s, they look at all things children…..…from the molecular level all the way up to adolescence.

Al Jalila Children’s is a 200-bed ultramodern paediatric hospital and the only one in the UAE today. The hospital incorporates SMART technology and design to enhance patient care and outcomes, and even has the first robotic pharmacy in Dubai and a fully automated laboratory. Every equipment in the hospital meets the specific needs of even the youngest patient. The X-ray and scan machines, for example, feature the latest equipment that deliver clear imaging with less exposure to radiation.

It is this attention to detail that makes Al Jalila Children’s different. Children are at the heart of everything they do.
