SEHA eyes nine new health clinics by 2012

Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (SEHA) on Wednesday announced plans for nine new ambulatory healthcare clinics in the UAE capital and Al Ain.

The proposals, which have been backed by the executive council of Abu Dhabi, are part of the company’s plan to deliver a comprehensive healthcare infrastructure "comparable to the best available in the world".

Saif Al Qubaisi, chairman of SEHA, said that the new health projects "will contribute to achieving greater levels of comprehensive medical care".

The clinics are currently slated for completion during the second quarter of 2012, the company said in a statement.  

The Abu Dhabi projects include three new buildings located in Mohamed Bin Zayed City, Shahama, and Al Shamkha, with the renovation of an existing building in Al Falah.  

All of the Al Ain projects will involve the replacement of existing buildings with new state-of-the-art clinics, the company.
Carl Stanifer, CEO of SEHA, said: “Serving populations of between 5,000 to 15,000 individuals, these specialised ambulatory clinics will provide citizens with timely access to medical care unseen in many of these areas before,” added Stanifer.

Each centre will cover an area of about 3,650 sq m spread over two levels.  

Every level will include 15 examination and treatment rooms in addition to sections for minor operations, diagnostic imaging and other comprehensive health services.
