Seha opens tenders for dialysis centre
Abu Dhabi, February 29, 2012
Abu Dhabi Health Services Company, Seha, has announced that the technical offers for the construction of the new Tawam Dialysis Centre have been opened, during a meeting held at its headquarters in Abu Dhabi.
The meeting was attended by an expert committee of engineers and consultants, and included representatives from the bidding contractors, said a statement from Seha.
Built on a total area of 17,217 sq m, the Tawam Dialysis Centre will offer a total of 98 kidney dialysis units, 66 units in phase one and 32 units in phase two. It will also include ten isolated units for infectious diseases, and two units for children.
The dialysis centre will be built according to a progressive design that will ensure easy access to a 142-car parking area, and utilise the latest technology and specialised equipment in the field of dialysis, the statement said.
“We based our expansion decision on data that indicates that we currently treat 506 patients suffering some level of renal failure and receiving treatment on a regular basis in dialysis units within Seha facilities in Abu Dhabi,” it said.
Seha currently operates 96 dialysis units distributed among the various health facilities in Abu Dhabi. The addition of the three specialised dialysis centres will increase the number of units by more than 200 per cent.
Its centres are being managed by Freisenius Medical Care, one of the largest global providers of dialysis equipment and services. The organisation will offer the finest medical services for patients suffering kidney failure, the statement said.
Seha has announced plans to add a third centre similar to the one in its final construction stages in the Al Mafraq area. On completion, the three centres will add 204 dialysis units to the company’s recourses, the statement said.
The construction is a continuation of Seha’s strategy to develop the necessary infrastructure to provide high quality world-class healthcare services to the residents of Abu Dhabi, it said. – TradeArabia News Service
