Project is being developed by the Dubai-based MAG Group
Dubai Healthcare City has announced the launch of the world’s largest wellness concept in its phase-two expansion in Al Jadaf, state news agency WAM reported.
Located on the waterfront, the WorldCare Wellness Village will occupy an area equivalent to roughly the size of 16 football fields.
Estimated to be larger in scale and offerings to current wellness properties in Europe and the US, the wellness village is being developed by the Dubai-based MAG Group. The US-based WorldCare International, which provides online medial consultation services, is behind the concept.
The WorldCare Wellness Village will occupy 810,000sqf (75,252sqm) of built up area on a 900,000sqf (83,613sqm) plot. It will be anchored by a 100,000sqf (9,290sqm) wellness centre focusing on prevention and management of diseases such as obesity, hypertension, diabetes and other physical conditions. More than 100 healthcare and allied professionals are expected to work at the centre.
The development will also include residential villas and apartments, as well as rental units to support long-term stay for both for local and foreign patients.
“We welcome our new wellness partner WorldCare who brings international systems and healthcare expertise that will strengthen what we already offer within the free zone,” said Bader Saeed Hareb, CEO – Investment Sector, Dubai Healthcare City.
“Concepts like WorldCare are a step in the right direction to ensure long-term sustainability and to develop a health and wellness destination that improves quality of life.”
