Cleveland Clinic’s 19,000 square metre facility is set to open next year
Patients and their families are at the heart of plans for Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi’s new cancer centre, which is due to open next year.
A patient and family advisory council has been set up, consisting of cancer patients, survivors and their families, to offer insights into services that should be made available at the centre.
The 19,000 square metre building will include 24 exam rooms, 24 infusion rooms, two procedure rooms, and an area devoted to specialised women’s oncology services, when it opens in 2022.
The 10-floor complex is modelled on Cleveland Clinic’s Taussig Cancer Centre in the US.
Dr Stephen R Grobmyer, chair of the Oncology Institute at Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi, said they had regular focus group discussions with patients and their families about their experience at the hospital.
