Setting up a business in Dubai Healthcare City (DHCC) gives you direct access to custom-fitted facilities, modern offices or desk space, it brings an unparalleled opportunity to join an established, evolving, flourishing community of excellence in the heart of the Middle East’s commercial and medical tourism capital. Dubai is now 6th in the Medical Tourism Association’s rankings, backed by a rapidly developing proposition underpinned by enhanced patient safety, global talent delivering world-class health services, and the patient-friendly Dubai Health Experience portal.

Establishing a base in DHCC will also bring direct access to a surging UAE population, that places great value on excellence, an increasingly ageing demographic who will make up 29% of the country’s residents by 2050, With health and wellbeing rising up the national agenda, launching operations in Dubai’s health and wellness destination puts business at the forefront of emerging trends.
