Sheikh Khalifa Medical City

Seha extends operating hours for in-demand services

ABU DHABI, August 6, 2020

Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (Seha), the largest healthcare network in the UAE, has announced new operating hours for select services in Sheikh Shakhbout Medical City (SSMC), Sheikh Khalifa Medical City (SKMC) and Tawam Hospital.

This move will expand the network’s capacity to accommodate the healthcare needs of patients, decrease waiting times and elevate the overall patient journey, in line with Seha’s patient-centric approach to healthcare.

To ensure maximum convenience in patient bookings and consultations, patients will now be able to seek medical consultation for in-demand specialties between 8:30am and 08:30pm, with select clinics also working on Saturdays. The change to operational hours has already been introduced in Tawam Hospital and will come into effect at SSMC and SKMC on August 9.

Rashed Saif Al Qubaisi, Group Deputy Chief Executive Officer, Seha, said: “As Seha continues transforming and advancing the healthcare sector in the Abu Dhabi region and beyond, we have a responsibility to ensure our facilities and services are fully accessible to the community.

“With our facilities strategically placed to ensure the entire community has easy access to world class healthcare, we are pleased to now extend our operating hours to guarantee convenience in appointment scheduling. We are confident that with this new change, we will be better positioned to meet every medical need amidst the population.”

Following Seha’s implementation of new safety measures across its facilities in line with government guidelines and as people resume reprioritizing their healthcare needs, select services have been experiencing increased demand. To ensure availability of these offerings, the operating hours of the following services across SSMC, SKMC and Tawam hospital will be extended: Cardiology, Neurology (adult and paediatric), ENT, Neurosurgery, in addition to supplementary specialties per facility.

Dr Marwan Al Kaabi, Acting Group Chief Operations Officer, Seha, said: “We look forward to welcoming patients during the new operating hours, and are confident the new scheduling flexibility will allow patients to better manage their healthcare journeys.” – TradeArabia News Service
