Two new dialysis centres have opened in Dubai, one of which was inaugurated by His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai Crown Prince and Chairman of The Executive Council of Dubai.
Sheikh Hamdan emphasised the importance of providing specialised health centres with international standards in Dubai, especially in areas that are seeing a growing demand.
