Dubai Healthcare City

The Dubai Healthcare City was founded in 2002 as a Free Zone focused on developing the health and wellness infrastructure of the UAE. It was built to attract and promote quality healthcare and clinical and wellness services and encourage more integrated and innovative medical education and research.
