A cancer hospital named after the late Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum will be established in Dubai.

The 250-bed 'Hamdan Bin Rashid Cancer Charity Hospital' will cover an area of 50,000 square metres.

His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai made the announcement.

Sheikh Mohammed said the facility will have a capacity to receive 30,000 patients annually, offering comprehensive services ranging from prevention, diagnosis, treatment and palliative care.

To be completed in two phases, the state-of-the-art hospital will open its doors in 2023.
