In an endeavor to elevate the quality and comfort level of services that are provided to the UAE National patients, Corniche Hospital has launched the first phase of a luxury floor housingsuperior16 suites.

The hospital’s 4th floor which is named as Al Reef now hosts the new luxury suites which are called Jasmine and Orchid suites. On 14th of May, the Al Reef Phase One opened doors of its five Super Deluxe Orchid suites and eleven Deluxe Jasmine suites to UAE National patients.

Speaking about the hospital’s newest venture, Dr. Mariam Al Mazrouei, Deputy Chief Executive Officer and Chief Operations Officer said, “This is a significant step taken by Corniche Hospital to augment our services provided to UAE National patients. Our mission is to provide family-centered compassionate healthcare services in the utmost comfort to our patients, and with the opening of the first phase of Al Reef floor, we are very pleased to satisfy the needs of our UAE National patients.”

Adding to that, Engineer Mohamed Hassan Al Zaabi, Executive Director of Facilities Development and Maintenance, at SEHA, asserted that SEHA has always been keen on designing its facilities according to the best practices adopted in the field of medical facilities design.

“SEHA aims at covering the increasing need for medical services in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, and that is why the new sections at Abu Dhabi Corniche Hospital have been equipped with the latest medical trends of healthcare. Each unit has been uniquely designed with top-notch interior designs and relaxing colors. The units have been also equipped with flat screens, smart curtains and a kitchen that covers the need of the entire wing which brings about a different experience for the patients and their visitors. The new facilities are connected by independent corridors with peaceful illumination and modernized nursing stations,” he said.

‘The aim of this project is to make patients feel like they are at home. We have endeavored to infuse ingenuity in the interiors to help patients forget that they are in a hospital,’ said Peter Toombs, General Service Manager of Corniche Hospital. “As we all know, an appealing environment also speeds up the recovery process,” he added.

The inaugural day of Al Reef saw four patients who were admitted in the luxurious Orchid Super Deluxe suites.

“The new luxury suites are a huge improvement from the private wards of the past. The old rooms were comfortable but lacked luxurious features. Now, the interiors are plush with an aesthetic touch everywhere. Not just the patient, even visiting relatives and friends will enjoy a comfortable stay at the new Corniche suites. I’m sure like me, many UAE national women will be happy to hear about this new development,” said Mai Mohamed, a new mother who was delighted to be admitted to the Al Reef Orchid Suite.

Corniche Hospital is owned and operated by Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (SEHA), which is responsible for the curative activities of all the public hospitals and clinics of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.
