“We know and value the efforts of VPS Healthcare in the region and its rich understanding of the market. CHOP’s commitment to paediatric excellence is known the world over and we look forward to developing a long and mutually-beneficial partnership.”

“Keeping in mind the need of specialized paediatric services in the region, it is a wonderful opportunity for us to team up with an organization like CHOP, whose goal has always been to provide children with the highest quality and most advanced care,” said Dr Ali Obaid Al Ali, CEO - Abu Dhabi Hospitals, VPS Healthcare.
