At Rashid Hospital, we have created a facility dedicated to fighting the fallout of air pollution using advanced technology, teaching and treating our patients on how to breathe easily.
Our Pulmonology department has taken the fast track in this discipline and is in a position today to offer professional management in health problems or issues involving the respiratory tract, covering issues with the lungs, asthma, allergic disorders, chronic bronchitis and other respiratory diseases.
