It consists of the Medical Community, which is made up of 4.1 million square feet and is now operational and the Wellness Community, which is being planned through the Dubai Wellness Resort project. The medical community has grown rapidly to include over 80 clinics and 1200 professionals who are licensed by DHCCs Centre for Healthcare Planning and Quality, to ensure that the services offered in the medical complex meet the highest international quality standards, such as JCI and, in the future, Trent Accreditation Scheme and ACHSI.
