Introducing Al Rahba Hospital

Established in 2003 with a mission to enhance health services for Abu Dhabi residents through the highest standards of excellence, Al Rahba Hospital is a 190-bed advanced secondary care general facility. The hospital is strategically located close to the major highway between Abu Dhabi and Dubai, and since 2008 has been managed by Johns Hopkins Medicine International. In 2006, Al Rahba became the first public hospital in the UAE to be accredited by Joint Commission International (JCI). The hospital strives to be a healthcare provider and employer of choice, and was granted JCI re-accreditation in 2009 and 2012, confirming its credentials, facilities, and professionalism.


Al Rahba's highly competent emergency department serves more than 200 patients daily. A multi-slice CT scanner is a major asset in providing premium-quality emergency services, especially in trauma cases. The Outpatient Department has 18 specialties and the hospital also offers special programs such as the Women's Health initiative, which concentrates on preventive care for women of all ages, especially breast and cervical cancers, and osteoporosis.


In its capacity as a world-leading and forward-thinking health service provider, the hospital employs the highest standard internationally qualified physicians and nursing staff, drawn from more than 30 countries, all working diligently to provide expert healthcare. Al Rahba Hospital is a member of the SEHA HealthSystem, which is responsible for managing and developing public hospitals and clinics in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.
