A Hospital for the King of the Skies

The falcon is a sacred animal in Dubai and a symbol of power and richness. Every tradition-minded family owns at least one falcon for their favourite activity: hunting.

In order to take care about the falcons, Dr. Rempel decided to build « The Dubai Falcon Hospital » in the middle of the desert. It is personally owned by the royal family. Equipped with an X-ray room, a surgery department, three ambulances for emergencies and a large laboratory, this eccentric hospital is on the cutting edge of technological progress.
