Dubai hospital inks key partnership deals
Dubai, May 28, 2012
Saudi German Hospital-Dubai, a leading healthcare group in the UAE, said it has signed strategic partnership agreements with leading insurance entities Now Health International and Amity Health.
Hong Kong-headquartered Now Health International is a specialist provider of health insurance. The organization is renowned for providing peerless service through its regional service centers which include Dubai and the United Kingdom.
Amity Health is a third party administrator that acts on behalf of insurers and large employers in the public and private sectors.
These deals further underline the hospital's credentials as a progressive player in the UAE’s health sector since more clients can now use their medical insurance to access Saudi German Hospital-Dubai’s services, said a statement from the hospital.
This ultimately gives them the opportunity to enhance their well-being and vitality through the hospital’s state-of-the-art facilities and specialized expertise, it added.
Commenting on the tieups, hospital CEO Dr Mohaymen Abdelghany said, “These deals are a win-win scenario because our hospital is becoming more accessible to clients of various insurance providers, while those clients will now enjoy access to our world-class amenities and expertise.”
Shedding more light on the synergies, Dr Abdelghany pointed out that being a hospital does not mean the institution should only focus on the medical side of affairs.
'We acknowledge that it would be myopic to only focus on treating patients, if those patients don’t have financial peace of mind. Therefore by spreading our wings to include various insurance partners, we are going the extra mile to make it more convenient and more financially prudent for our patients to access our services,' he stated.
'We always look at the bigger picture to provide a holistic experience for our clientele,' said the hospital chief.
The latest agreements come hot on the heels of a recent deal which Saudi German Hospital-Dubai signed with Neuron Healthcare Insurance.-TradeArabia News Service
