Mediclinic said deal will allow for partnering in future locations
Mediclinic is set to acquire Dubai-based City Centre Clinics Deira and Me’aisem from Majid Al Futtaim.
The agreement will allow Mediclinic Middle East the opportunity to partner with Majid Al Futtaim in future locations, the international private healthcare group said.
City Centre Clinic Deira, a large outpatient facility, opened in 2013 with two day-care surgery theatres and 18 medical disciplines, and City Centre Clinic Me’aisem, is a smaller community clinic focusing on six core disciplines.
Mediclinic said the clinics’ strategic geographic locations will refer higher acuity inpatient cases to existing Mediclinic hospitals and the forthcoming Mediclinic Parkview Hospital.
It added that significant potential also exists to attract additional doctors and over time to grow patient volumes and revenues.
“Following the success of existing mall clinics in Dubai, Mediclinic identified an opportunity with Majid Al Futtaim at City Centre Clinics Deira and Me’aisem to build additional presence in some of Dubai’s leading retail and entertainment hubs,” said David Hadley, CEO of Mediclinic Middle East.
“The clinics are also ideally situated to refer, where necessary, patients to our existing Mediclinic Welcare Hospital in Al Garhoud and our forthcoming Mediclinic Parkview Hospital in Al Barsha South.”For all the latest health tips & news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
