The Dubai Health Authority (DHA) has hired more than 1,400 medical staff last year bringing the total workforce strength to more than 11,000, according to a top health official.

Maryam Subaih, director of Human Resources at the DHA, said: “In 2014, we carried out a substantial recruitment drive and we will continue to do so this year.

“The demand for healthcare staff is fuelled by the ever-growing health sector and completion of new projects. Qualified talent-pool is the lifeline of the health sector and at the DHA we pay particular emphasis to recruit, train and retain our staff.

“In the last two years, more than 3336 employees have received upgrades.”

Of the 1,410 medical staff recruited, 328 were administration staff, 224 medical staff, 534 nurses, 222 paramedics and 26 were medical trainees, said Subaih.

This year, the 200-bed Al Jalila Children’s Specialty Hospital will be operational and the expansion of the Trauma Centre will be complete, she said.

The recruitment is in line with the Dubai Health Strategy 2013-2025 and is based on a detailed work-force plan which takes into consideration various factors such as specialty of manpower needed and number of nurses per hospital bed, she added. - TradeArabia News Service
