Canadian Specialist offers ‘Friday clinics’
Dubai, February 27, 2013
Canadian Specialist Hospital (CSH), a top private hospital in Dubai catering to tertiary health care needs, has announced a new service on Fridays, which will offer consultations across all major specialties.
The ‘Friday Clinics’ will run at the outpatient clinic at the hospital’s Abu Hail branch in Dubai, between 2 and 8 pm every Friday.
Dr Hayder Al Zubaidy, CEO of CSH, said “UAE’s healthcare infrastructure is taking dynamic strides and making rapid progress to strengthen its position as a regional medical hub, in line with the country’s vision.”
“Huge efforts are being undertaken by the Dubai Government to cater to the soaring demands of a rapidly growing population requiring basic medical services. Through our new service, we aim to tackle the diverse health issues ranging from the increasing demand for healthcare services, with increased accessibility for our patients.”
“People living in Dubai are susceptible to a number of lifestyle induced medical concerns like diabetes, cardiac diseases, hypertension and obesity, among others. The average age of patients contracting these chronic diseases is also reducing at an alarming rate.
Through feedback received from our patients, we have understood the importance of adding this service, which aims to improve accessibility and also balance the rush at the hospital between Friday and Saturday,” added Dr Al Zubaidy.
The move has been launched after taking into consideration the increasing demand among working professionals for the availability of medical services on their weekly day-off. – TradeArabia News Service
