King’s College Hospital London is a world-renowned teaching hospital in London with over 175 years’ experience. In writing the next chapter in the King’s legacy, our very first Dubai based hospital in the prestigious Dubai Hills opened in January 2019. In doing so, King’s has invested over USD 200 million into bringing the best of British Healthcare to the UAE.

The service at King’s is led by a team of doctors who are highly skilled and proficient in the diagnosis and treatment of problems associated with unborn babies.
