Medcare Women & Children Hospital, a part of the Aster DM Healthcare Group, has signed an agreement with the world-renowned Sheba Medical Centre in Tel Aviv, Israel, which was recently ranked by Newsweek magazine’s prestigious list of Top Ten Hospitals in the World. 
This partnership will facilitate knowledge exchange between both institutions across various specialities, collaboration among doctors to bring the best to UAE and further enhance the quality of care for patients, encourage advanced medical training, upscaling of skills and capabilities at the hospital.
“Once the Abraham Accord was signed and ties between UAE and Israel Agreement were established, we started to explore opportunities for association with healthcare providers in Israel. We zeroed in on Sheba, which has been recognised as one the top 10 best hospitals in the world by Newsweek magazine,” says Dr Azad Moopen, Founder Chairman and Managing Director, Aster DM Healthcare. “We are excited as this partnership will help to serve as a collaboration model between the two institutions in clinical services and lead to an increase in innovation and research initiatives.”
“This new collaboration between Medcare Women & Children’s Hospital and Sheba Medical Centre, represents yet another giant step forward in building bridges between our two nations and offering hope without boundaries to anyone who seeks medical care,” reveals Prof Yitshak Kreiss, Director General of Sheba Medical Centre.
This ground-breaking partnership will see an exchange of knowledge between Medcare Women & Children Hospital and Sheba Medical Centre that will focus on specialised care for women’s health, in the areas of Endometriosis, Minimal Invasive Surgery, Reproductive Endocrinology and Fetal Medicine. This will expose Medcare’s medical practitioners to cutting-edge research programmes, training and innovative treatments which in turn, will help to advance the clinical care that is offered to patients across these specialties.
Sheba is world renowned for their quality healthcare delivery across the hospital’s 159 medical departments with its 2000 bed capacity and 75 laboratories. Its highly qualified doctors have been known to introduce many innovative treatments and cutting-edge research, which has set benchmarks in the medical field. With specialised women and children’s health centres the organisation has been known to find favourable solutions for some of the most complex cases. For example, its Neonatology department has been consistently recognised as the best in the country. Its world-renowned Gynaecologic Oncology Department offers a variety of treatments for gynaecologic cancers and is engaged in research of new cancer treatments. Furthermore, the Reproductive Endocrinology and Fertility Unit provides fertility-sparing procedures and fertility treatments, such as cryopreservation of oocytes and microsurgical tube reconstruction.
“Sheba is proud to offer our best doctors in the women’s health arena, where we are integrating some of the most advanced technological treatments in the world to Medcare’s patients. Through this collaboration, we know that we will be able to maintain Medcare’s dedication to superior healthcare for the people in the UAE region,” adds, Yoel Har-Even, Director of Sheba International.
