DHA to set up international cardiology centre in Dubai

DUBAI, August 23, 2017

The Dubai Health Authority (DHA) has announced plans to establish an international centre of cardiology in Dubai in collaboration with New York Presbyterian Hospital.

Humaid Al Qutami, chairman of the board and director-general of the Dubai Health Authority signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with New York Presbyterian Hospital during his official tour of the US recently where he met with high-level healthcare officials from several health institutions.

Al Qutami, said: “Dubai Health Authority is aware of the growing demand for its specialised health services across hospitals, primary care centres and specialised centres. Cardiology is one of the most important fields of medicine and the establishment of an international centre for cardiology will increase Dubai's competitive capabilities on the international medical front, and it will further bolster its position on the global medical tourism map.”

He highlighted that DHA has highly qualified healthcare professionals in the field of cardiology and that the DHA cardiology departments are recognised for their specialised services they provide both in interventional and open-heart cardiac procedures. The cardiology departments of DHA hospitals have become a referral centre for complicated cardiac cases and the establishment of this dedicated international centre will further aid in the provision of high level care.

He said that the new centre will have the latest equipment, super-care facilities and a unique healing environment. It will also focus on training and research in the field of cardiology and the authority aims to make the centre a training hub in the region. – TradeArabia News Service
