Initially, the Department of Health and Medical Services (DOHMS), which was created in 1973, was the functioning authority that almost exclusively focused on health service delivery.
Therefore, the DHA... more was created, in June 2007, by Law 13 issued by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE, Ruler of Dubai, with an expanded vision to include strategic oversight for the complete health sector in Dubai and enhance private sector engagement.
His Highness Sheikh Hamdan Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Deputy Ruler of Dubai and UAE Minister of Finance is the President of the Dubai Health Authority. His Excellency Engineer Essa Al Haj Al Maidoor is the Director General of the DHA.
The DHA’s aim in Dubai is to provide an accessible, effective and integrated healthcare system, protect public health and improve the quality of life within the Emirate. This is a direct translation of the objectives of the Dubai Strategic Plan 2015 launched by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum. Keeping the strategic plan in mind, the DHA’s mission is to ensure access to health services, maintain and improve the quality of these services, improve the health status of nationals, residents and visitors and oversee a dynamic, efficient and innovative health sector.
In addition to overseeing the health sector for the Emirate of Dubai, the DHA also focuses on providing services through DHA healthcare facilities including hospitals (Latifa, Dubai and Rashid), specialty centres (e.g. the Dubai Diabetes Center) and DHA primary health centres spread throughout the Emirate of Dubai.
The main pillars of service delivery at DHA health facilities are quality, efficiency, patients and staff. It is our aim to maintain and improve the quality and efficiency of DHA health services. An important aspect of the service delivery strategy is to focus on patients, their needs and satisfaction as well as attract, retain, nurture and support outstanding staff.

No one ever picks up the phone !!!!
I have been trying to call them about two days now and honestly this is ridiculous
Not to forget the trouble they gave me because of lack of enough cooperation... more between accounts and physiology department !!!
Just because they were not aware of my appointment siutiaon they charged me extra regard of Dr. coming after and saying it was not needed , yet they wouldn’t care !!!
I will never ever go back to this place
There are way more better hospitals and trust me they pick the phone on the second ring
No one answers the phone. I was over 30 minutes trying to reach either Neurology or Emergency. Operators would attempt to transfer in vain because no one was answering.
Later after arriving... more in the hospital I arrived in the Emergency area and there was no one to assist. I had to leave the car and assist the casualty to the Triage. When inquiring I was informed the Security Personnel is in charge of “assisting”. It is absurd, you need some staff on standy to assist customers who cannot walk on their on.
This hospital needs to improve these aspects of the service.
The best hospital. I suffered pain and I had no idea I was on critical condition and need urgent operation. Rashid hospital saved my life. Doctor and nurses so kind and big heart. In my country... more no hospital will accept u once you didn't pay deposit or nor have money.
