Cancer Care Center

The Cancer Care Center at the American Hospital Dubai has remained a leading center of excellence for cancer care within the region since opening its medical campus in 2005. Through an integrated program and a passionate team led by American Board Certified Hematologists and Oncologists, the American Hospital Dubai Cancer Center provides Dubai with premium healthcare solutions.

According to the World Health Organization, cancer is the second largest cause of global deaths, with 8.8 million fatalities in 2015.  In UAE, after cardiovascular diseases, cancer remains the leading cause of death. 

In line with the UAE National agenda to bring down cancer-associated mortality, the department of oncology and hematology at the American Hospital Dubai has been transformed into a comprehensive cancer care center.  The center is focused on delivering world-class comprehensive cancer care ranging from preventative measures and early detection to the state of the art treatment and supportive services incorporating a multidisciplinary team framework that include members from various disciplines that include medical oncology, hematology, radiation oncology, surgical oncology, breast care clinic, palliative care, and pain, nutrition and health psychology.

Our vision is to create a culture that encourages and reinforces patient-centric care.  We are utilizing cutting-edge scientific data and innovative strategies with compassion to ensure that all those who are at risk and affected by cancer have access to the highest quality care.

Our mission is to provide excellence in cancer care through outstanding programs that integrate quality patient care, education, research and collaboration with the world leading hospitals like Mayo Clinic as a Mayo Clinic network member (MCCN).
