The capital city will be the home for the soon Dh103 million ultramodern dialysis center which construction work will start as soon as the project receives the Executive Committee’s approval from the of the Abu Dhabi Executive Council, and following the adoption of a budget for design and execution.
New 66 kidney dialysis units to cater renal failure patients with the hi-tech medical technologies and devices will be available on the new SKMC Dialysis Center to support the specification of world-class health care, and to also cover the needs of the anticipated increase in population in upcoming years.
At present, the city needs 67 kidney dialysis units but only 42 are available that’s why the construction of the SKMC dialysis center will back up the current demand.
The latest facility will also boost other dialysis centers functioning in the emirate, such as Al Mafraq Dialysis Center, which has 66 units, as well as Tawam Dialysis Centre, with 99 units.
SKMC Dialysis Center has an overall surface area of 10,057 square meters, while 6,276 square meters will be dedicated to infrastructure and parks.
