Princess Haya opens new cancer centre in Dubai
The Comprehensive Cancer Centre (CCC), Dubai’s newest cancer clinic, was opened yesterday by Her Royal Highness Princess Haya bint Al Hussein, accompanied by senior health officials. Princess Haya was acting on behalf of her husband, Sheikh Muhammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Emir of Dubai, and Prime Minister and Vice President of the United Arab Emirates.
The CCC forms Dubai’s most advanced medical centre for the treatment of cancer and was built in collaboration with Mediclinic Middle East’s sister clinic in Switzerland. Now that it’s open and operational, it is able to offer patients full access to some of the most experienced practitioners in oncology, as well as a full suite full of the latest and most up to date facilities and equipment for treating cancer. This will allow citizens of the UAE to benefit from cancer-related healthcare without having to travel overseas, which makes it more accessible to broader swathes of the population.
During the opening, Princess Haya spoke with Dr Shaheenah Dawood, Consultant Oncologist, on recent developments in oncological care. Of great help to UAE’s efforts in treating cancer is the recent opening of the Jallia Foundation Research Centre.
