Saudi German Hospital to build medical tower
Dubai, January 27, 2013
Saudi German Hospitals Group (SGH) has announced plans to construct a hitech medical tower that will accommodate 215 leased clinics, six specialized medical centers and an expansive educational centre in Dubai.
One of the largest collection of private medical care in the Mena region, SGH features 300 hospital beds as well as new and ultramodern healthcare infrastructure within a 90,000 sq m, five-storey facility.
With the Middle East healthcare industry generating revenues of up to $80 billion annually, SGH is capitalizing on the networking potential of Arab Health 2013 and is also investing in advanced healthcare technologies to further strengthen its presence and competitive advantage in the region, said a company statement.
SGH will provide an overview of the medical tower and other expansion initiatives in the region as well as the hospital’s latest healthcare facilities and German technology at the upcoming Arab Health 2013 expo. The world's longest running healthcare exhibition and congress, Arab Health will be held from January 28 to 31 at the Dubai International Convention & Exhibition Centre, it added.
Dr Reem Osman, the CEO of Saudi German Hospital – Dubai, said healthcare remains a top priority of governments in the Middle East and this is clearly reflected by the increasing healthcare expenditure in the region.
"SGH-Dubai is fully committed to complement the growing focus on healthcare by making the latest and most advanced German technology available and ensuring the highest standards in medical care," observed Dr Osman.
"Our participation at Arab Health 2013 will therefore be a great opportunity to showcase the latest innovations in German medical technology and to provide an overview of future developments in healthcare," she remarked.
"Moreover, we are looking forward to capitalizing on the huge networking potential of Arab Health to establish strategic alliances and consolidate the reputation of Saudi German Hospitals Group as one of the leading healthcare institutions in the Middle East," she added.-TradeArabia News Service
