DHCC opens new medical facility
Dubai, January 29, 2009
Dubai Healthcare City (DHCC) has opened a patient-focused, state-of-the-art medical facility Dubai Medical Suites (DMS) to serve as a new ambulatory care centre.
It was launched at the Arab Health 2009 in Dubai.
The new ambulatory care centre will enhance healthcare delivery by improving patient flow, reducing recovery times and maximising comfort for the growing patient population at DHCC.
Located in the Al Razi Building at DHCC, DMS features 20 fully-equipped clinics and examination rooms, six diagnostic rooms, four state-of-the-art operating theatres, four induction and 12 recovery beds as well as an ICU bed for emergency cases.
“The demand for ambulatory care is a growing global phenomena, as a result of the declining ratio of physicians to patients, particularly in the Middle East. In response to this growing demand, Dubai Medical Suites (DMS) has been established as the first operational centre within Dubai Healthcare City for the provision of ambulatory care, with a focus on minimizing pain and a priority towards patient’s needs,” said senior vice-president of DHCC Dr Ayesha Abdullah.
Specialties currently covered by DMS include Anesthesiology, Cardio-Respiratory Sleep Disorders, Endocrinology & Diabetes, Ear Nose & Throat, Gastroenterology, Internal Medicine, Nutrition, Pain Medicine, Pediatrics & Pediatric Gastroenterology and Radiology.
The mission of DMS is to provide the highest standard of specialty medical and surgical ambulatory care, with minimum pain, available through a multi-disciplinary team of locally and internationally renowned professionals, positioning DMS as a model for excellence in ambulatory healthcare delivery.
Both the out-patient clinics and operating theatres of DMS have been licensed by the Centre for Healthcare Planning and Quality (CPQ). In addition to the CPQ licence of the ambulatory center, all medical staff at DMS have obtained individual CPQ professional licenses.
These accreditations aim to create a culture of quality and raise the standard for patient care and safety in the Middle East. – TradeArabia News Service
