UAE-based Cambridge Medical and Rehabilitation Centre (CMRC), a portfolio company of healthcare specialist investor TVM Capital Healthcare, has opened its first facility in Saudi Arabia.

CMRC’s new 60-bed facility, located between Dhahran and Al Khobar, has admitted its first patients requiring post-acute care and rehabilitation services.

It offers multidisciplinary rehabilitative therapies including physiatry, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech and language therapy, and multi-sensory room sessions.

The facility will service patients across the eastern region of Saudi Arabia, the company said in a statement, adding that it will follow the same clinical procedures and protocols implemented in facilities across the UAE.

It will also benefit from the the company's international partnership with the Spaulding Rehabilitation Network, a Harvard Medical School teaching affiliate.

CMRC’s group CEO, Dr Howard S Podolsky, said: “We expand into countries where there is notable demand for post-acute care and rehabilitation services. Like many countries around the world, Saudi Arabia is experiencing a rise in the incidence of non-communicable diseases, birth defects, and life-threatening injuries.

"Our new facility brings our world-class medical treatment, care, and rehabilitation therapies to the kingdom through a truly patient-centric approach.”

CMRC also operates facilities in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain.
