Aster Hospital opens state-of-art Cath lab in Dubai

DUBAI, July 19, 2018

Aster Hospital, owned by leading healthcare provider Aster DM Healthcare, has opened a state-of-the-art Cath lab offering high quality cardiac services in Mankhool, Dubai.

While the hospital is recognized for providing primary and secondary care services to patients in UAE, the introduction of the Cath lab affirms its efforts to introduce tertiary care services to meet the complex cardiac needs of the local population, a statement said.

In the UAE, a three-year prospective registry of Acute Coronary Syndrome (ACS) patients found that patients were relatively young and had risk factors such as smoking and diabetes.

“The incidence of Ischemic Heart Disease is increasing in UAE. We see the onset of heart diseases even in youngsters. The setting up of cardiac catheterization lab is for delivering comprehensive heart care at affordable cost,” said Dr Azad Moopen, founder chairman and managing director, Aster DM Healthcare.

With the new advanced diagnostic facilities and technological expertise, Aster Hospital at Mankhool, Dubai is fully equipped to meet this need and provide medical investigation services, cardiac care and treatments locally.

Services like angioplasty are recognized as one of the most important procedures for treating heart patients and the hospital is working towards establishing a concrete emergency care system that excels at handling all levels of medical support and care.

Aster DM Healthcare will soon be launching a new Aster Hospital in Qusais to serve, and increase access to healthcare services for communities.  – TradeArabia News Service
