Abu Dhabi, February 12, 2012
Abu Dhabi’s Al Rahba Hospital achieved significant milestones last year with the expansion of its facilities and introduction of new technology.
The hospital expanded its ICU and NICU rooms by adding 27 new rooms (10 ICU, 17 NICU), two new VIP suites and a specially designed playroom for children, a statement said.
In the clinics section, the ophthalmology clinic was reopened offering the best of medical services and operated by world renowned doctors and a dedicated Cardiology Clinic was inaugurated, it said.
“In 2011, we have managed to achieve many of our set objectives with regards to the hospital expansion and addition of new clinics,” said Timothy Dentry, CEO of Al Rahba Hospital. “The ICU and NICU expansion will help us aid more patients and ensure they receive the best quality of healthcare services.”
The hospital also organised a number of initiatives, campaigns and events including the 2nd Women's Health Conference, the community town hall meeting (Mas’aool Intiative), the child injury prevention campaign, Osteoporosis, Diabetes and breast cancer awareness campaigns. Training programs for the hospital’s staff were also a key highlight of 2011 including the disaster preparedness training program that was held during December to enhance the capacity and capability of Al Rahba employees in a standardized and integrated approach.
“Last year was a phenomenal one for Al Rahba Hospital as we focused our efforts on strengthening our bonds with the society and among our staff,” added Dentry. “Our awareness campaigns and training programs were widely recognized by the patients, visitors and staff members and created more channels of interaction and opinion exchange. This year, we are planning to increase our outreach programs and highlight many medical issues that can - if prevented- save many lives.”
The hospital is owned and operated by Abu Dhabi Health Services Company PJSC (Seha) and managed by Johns Hopkins Medicine International. –TradeArabia News Service
