Sahara Healthcare City



Sahara Healthcare City (SHC), the Healthcare Destination of the Future – a state-of-the-art project, offering a unique fusion of healthcare services and lifestyle amenities, is gearing to open its doors shortly. SHC is adjacent to Sahara Centre and is strategically located on the border between Sharjah and Dubai, making its services accessible to patients and healthcare experts in both Emirates.

SHC will become the first of its kind, multi-disciplinary medical destination in UAE. It aims to be a one-stop solution for premium patient care, and quality healthcare services, by strategically partnering with local and global healthcare providers. SHC’s broad range of healthcare services combine academia with clinical responsibilities, supported by the most advanced medical technology.

SHC is an extension of Sahara Centre Mall (est.2002), one of the leading retail destinations in the UAE. The complex houses retail outlets on three levels and will house healthcare services on five levels. The development, encircled by well-maintained, high-density residential communities, coupled with the shopping centre’s popularity gained over 2 decades, is situated ideally to attract potential patients for partners. SHC will cater to the locale, Sahara Centre visitors, plus Sharjah residents, and travellers from Dubai, who comprise 20% of Sahara Centre’s visitors.

Why Invest in Sahara Healthcare City?

  1. The UAE’s healthcare sector is projected to grow to AED 39.4 billion by 2025, according to new analysis from the Dubai Chamber of Commerce, and industry predictions based on data from Euromonitor.
  2. With the growing population of Sharjah and the adjoining Emirates expected to reach 2.7 million by 2025, there is an acute need for more healthcare facilities, boosting the overall healthcare industry of the region, considerably.
  3. Growing demand for specialised services, an ageing population, mandatory healthcare insurance, a rise in GDP per capita, and a prevalence of ailments caused by lifestyles.
  4. Lack of centralised medical facilities in Sharjah, creating investment opportunities in the fields of oncology, paediatrics, post-acute and rehabilitation, along with diabetes, and more.
  5. Serves 20 million+ people; Sahara Centre attracts up to 17 million shoppers annually and these figures are anticipated to surge up to 20 million after the expansion. Capitalising on this popularity to connect with a diverse patient base is advised.
  6. SHC’s strategic location; adjacent to Sahara Centre, on the border of Sharjah and Dubai, as well as its proximity to the airports of each Emirate, allowing access from the mall, the new residential towers, and the northern Emirates.
  7. Ministry of Health Compliant Construction; Adhering to all mandated official MOH guidelines for health and safety details, including in-patient elevators, multiple entry points, optimal ceiling height for day surgery centres, and an ambulance bay.
  8. More Than a Leasing Partner; the ideal location of SHC presents a good picture for healthcare providers, serving as a PR vehicle enabling partners to connect with millions. Additionally, an abundance of parking spots, indoor entertainment, retail outlets, fine-dining establishments, and commercial services, are equally attractive for patients.

Bringing Hospitality to Healthcare
