Our Journey

In 1963, Dar Al Shifa Hospital (DASH) was established as the first private hospital in the State of Kuwait. Originally, it was a maternity hospital located in Sharq, Kuwait city. Since that time, the hospital became a leading health care organization in the region.
In 1992, DASH went through a notable expansion under the ownership of Mr. Ali Jeraq who had a visionary goal to make healthcare services accessible to every individual in the community. As a result, DASH developed into a fully-fledged general hospital that included a wide scope of services. 



Our services, standards and staff competencies are grounded in our corporate essence as reflected in our vision, mission and corporate values.

In 2003, various factors including the hospital’s growing reputation, continuous investment in the workforce, and adoption of the state-of-the-art technology facilitated the relocation of the organization to Hawally Governate. This shift in location allowed for an increase in both the inpatient beds and the outpatient clinics and eventually boosted the capacity to serve a wider segment of the population.

Over the last few years, DASH has proved itself as a trustworthy organization in which patient/family-centered care is provided through a competent and diverse team of health care professionals utilizing the latest technology and applying evidence-based practices. Another significant achievement of DASH is attaining recognized international accreditation and awards from Accreditation Canada and American College of Radiology.

Today, DASH is continuously growing and evolving as a distinguished health care organization with a focus on providing comprehensive and specialized services to meet the needs of the community. DASH dedication towards development and growth is reflected in the ongoing expansion which will make it the largest private hospital in Kuwait.
