A new integrated healthcare group has been launched in Abu Dhabi.
Capital Health said in a statement that it plans to create specialised hospitals and medical centres to serve the needs of UAE residents and medical tourists.
In line with UAE Vision 2021 and Plan Abu Dhabi 2030, the company said it will "pioneer new healthcare models and offer breakthrough technologies to provide patients with best in class care".
Capital Health added that it currently has two flagship facilities in Abu Dhabi under development.
The 166-bed Specialised Rehabilitation Hospital (SRH) will provide acute and long-term rehabilitation care, along with in-patient, out-patient and home care capabilities while the Health Shield Medical Centre (HSMC) will be a multi-specialty healthcare facility located in the Al Qurm district.
The company said SRH will be the UAE's first fully acute, sub-acute and long-term rehabilitation facility with outpatient capabilities, which will bring the latest bionics and robotics to the region.
Dr Mishal Al Kasimi, CEO of Capital Health, said: “By bringing highly specialised expertise and equipment to the region, Capital Health will help to transform the Middle East’s healthcare landscape. Our first task is to modernise rehabilitative medicine across the Middle East based on best in class global practice that gives science-backed hope to patients.
"Over time, we will expand our care network to support the UAE’s ambitious strategy of delivering exceptional treatment to residents and medical tourists alike.”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.
