Medanta to open multi-specialty hospital in DHCC

DUBAI, January 29, 2015

Dubai Healthcare City (DHCC), a leading healthcare free zone, is set to establish the first UAE-based hospital of a leading Indian healthcare provider Medanta.

The planned Medanta Hospital in DHCC’s Phase 1 will have a capacity of approximately 250 beds, and will cater to a broad range of specialties.

The new hospital, which was announced on the sidelines of the ongoing Arab Health 2015 in Dubai, is expected to open by early 2017.

Medanta – The Medicity, established in 2009 in Gurgaon, adjoining India’s capital, New Delhi, holds the global distinction of performing the highest number of living donor liver transplants and the first robotic kidney transplant.
From 2009 till March 2014, the hospital has carried out more than 150,000 procedures and surgeries in specialties including cardiology, orthopaedics, neurology, oncology, and liver and renal transplants.

Dr Raja Easa Al Gurg, vice-chairperson, Dubai Healthcare City Authority, said: “As Dubai steadily gains recognition for providing world-class healthcare and establishing itself as a medical tourism hub, we, at DHCC, have witnessed an increasing number of medical tourists year on year.

“Part of our strategy is the focus on high-quality, specialized healthcare. The establishment of Medanta at DHCC is an indicator of the strength of strategic partnerships and channeling of efforts to meet the demand for specialized medical treatments in the emirate and beyond.”

Marwan Abedin, chief executive officer, Dubai Healthcare City, said: “DHCC has made consistent efforts to be at the forefront of enabling high-quality healthcare delivery by attracting top medical expertise. Our growth is spurred by regulation and capacity planning.

“We are proud to partner with Medanta to achieve our collective goal to improve patient care. Our partnership is another example of how our healthcare operations leverage strategic partnerships, which in turn, enable medical innovation and improved healthcare delivery.”

Dr Naresh Trehan, a renowned cardiac surgeon and the force behind Medanta – The Medicity, will be setting up the Dubai-based hospital as a venture between its holding company, Global Health, and a company promoted by India-based industrialist Ravi Jaipuria and Dubai-based businessman, Murari Jalan. - TradeArabia News Service
