The Iranian Hospital (Arabic: المستشفى الإيراني) in Dubai is located on the Al Wasl Road in Jumeirah. Inaugurated on 14 April 1972, it was built by and is affiliated to the Iranian Red Crescent Society, and is the oldest known provider of healthcare services in Dubai. Most of the hospital's medical staff are from the Iranian community in the UAE.[1] It is a private hospital and comes under Dubai Health Authority (DHA).

The hospital building features an exterior of blue tilework inspired by Persian architecture, similar to the Iranian Mosque located across the road.[2] The Iranian consulate is also nearby.
