Abu Dhabi clinic set to double while new clinic planned in Al Ain, says health provider
HealthPlus has announced plans to expand its IVF fertility services in the UAE.
Construction has started to double the capacity of its Abu Dhabi clinic, with an additional operating theatre and six preparation and recovery rooms.
HealthPlus said it is also planning to open a new clinic for IVF treatment in Al-Ain.
HealthPlus is a network of outpatient centres owned and managed by United Eastern Medical Services (UEMedical), said HealthPlus in a statement.
The AED8.5m investment in IVF services comes in response to the growing demand for fertility diagnosis and treatments, the statement added.
"The company's expansion plan aims to cope with the increasing demand for our services and to help reduce patient waiting time," said Majd Abu Zant, CEO of HealthPlus.
"This will allow us to perform up to 800 IVF treatments each year. The completion date of the construction is expected to be by October," he added.
He also said two more internationally renowned IVF Consultants will join the team to deliver the expanded services.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.
