Established in partnership with the world-famous US Cleveland Clinic, who will manage and operate the
facility, the clinic is not only set to be the most progressive medical facility in the Middle East boasting cutting-
edge technology, but will also be the largest non-industrial steel structure in the region. In keeping with
Aldar’s firm commitment to environmental preservation and sustainability, the project is aiming to achieve
LEED Gold Certification, and includes a double skin facade to help designed to aid the building’s energy
performance in Abu Dhabi’s climate. The inner layer of this unusual double-skin facade is already being put
in place. Other environmental measures include the recycling of condensated water which will also be used
for irrigation. The HVAC system has been designed to circulate 100% fresh air to aid in reduce the spread of
infections. With the expertise of one of the most highly esteemed hospitals in the United States, combined
with extensive diagnostic services and treatments, Cleveland Clinic will provide the best possible medical care
available for the UAE and the region.
Cleveland Clinic is a shining example of how Aldar is continually identifying new ways
to give its customers what they want. Being built by Aldar for Mubadala Healthcare, the
magnificent framework of the 364 bed, 22-storey Cleveland Clinic is currently rising on the
shores of Sowwah Island and upon opening in 2013 will become a world class health facility
serving all of Abu Dhabi’s residents, providing the most advanced medical services in the
Middle East.
