Avivo Group unveils big Gulf expansion plans

DUBAI, March 2, 2019

Avivo Group, one of the fastest growing healthcare organisations in the GCC, is planning to expand its presence in the Gulf countries and North Africa amid growing opportunities and strong demand for healthcare services in these countries, said its top official.
The group includes two highly reputed hospitals, 29 clinics including 10 high-end dental centres attached with sophisticated dental labs, six pharmacies and distribution centres besides two training centres and state-of-the-art diagnostic facilities across the UAE.
It already has a strong presence in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah and Kuwait, but is still open to expanding in the region in months to come, said CEO Dr Dilshaad Ali during a media roundtable recently.
"We are always on the growth path and keep looking to expand. We see the Middle East itself is growing, so our geographical expansion looks at Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Kuwait and Oman to a large extent and also looking into North Africa for the existing facilities and other new opportunities that come our way," Dr Ali said.
According to him, the Avivo Group is also in discussion on some private-public partnerships in some countries. 
The group is also expanding its speciality line, which will include neuro-spinal, anti-ageing and some other key areas such as urology and advanced gastroenterology. 
Dr Dilshaad said the growth would come from hospital segment of the healthcare delivery system as the current state of the platform will have a robust referral network to fill-up future in-patient occupancies.
“We have launched a Centre of Excellence in Plastic Surgery run by resident and visiting doctors from the US and Europe. We also have plans to launch a global Rhinoplasty Centre of Excellence soon comprising with five best nose surgeons from around the world,” noted Dr Ali.
“We have segmented our assets into low-end and mid-to-high end clinics. Some of our clinics are currently being transformed into speciality clinics offering surgical services that will help us in increasing our revenue base significantly,” he added.-TradeArabia News Service
