Registered Nurse:Labor & Delivery (Birthing Center) Unit
Kanad Hospital (formerly known as Oasis Hospital) was established in 1960 by Doctors Pat and Mariam Kennedy at the request of HH Sheikh Zayed Al Nahyan. The Kennedys were physicians from the United States whose primary goal was to honor God by providing loving healthcare to those in this region. Ever since our launch, Kanad has been known for its excellent obstetric and pediatric care, and we are proud to be recognized as one of the premier healthcare providers for women and children in the Middle East. We are honored to be the birthplace of many of the leaders of our great nation including HH Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan.
Kanad Hospital is a not-for-profit hospital that strives to diligently follow the teachings of Jesus in the way that we care for women, children, and their families. We have the privilege of being the first hospital established in the Abu Dhabi Emirate and the first private hospital in the Emirate to attain JCI accreditation. Additionally, we are the first hospital in the world to obtain JCI Clinical Care Program Certifications for our treatment program for Respiratory Distress Syndrome in newborns and for our Natural Birth after Cesarean Section program for mothers.
