At the Cancer Care Center, we take a holistic approach to healing. We provide support services designed to care for various aspects of a patient’s well-being during treatment. These wraparound therapies include nutritional therapy, massage therapy, financial assistance, travel and lodging assistance, emotional and spiritual support, and much more, with recommendations made according to each patient’s specific needs.

The mission of the American Hospital Dubai Cancer Center is to provide excellence in cancer care through outstanding programs that integrate quality patient care, prevention of cancer, education and research. We are highly motivated to educate others, explore ways to prevent cancer and recruit and retain the best people by creating a culture that encourages, rewards and protects employees.
