Dubai, January 21, 2014
Dubai Health Authority (DHA) said it has signed an agreement with Trakhees, a division under the Ports, Customs & Free Zones Corporation, to unify the standard of transactions of facilities and individuals who are willing to undertake healthcare investments in the subsidiary developmental areas of Dubai Ports, Customs and Free Zone Organization.
The agreement was signed at the DHA’s headquarters by director general Essa Al Hajj Al Maidoor and Arif Obaid Al Dehail, the CEO of Trakhees.
Al Maidoor said the DHA was keen on providing highest quality of healthcare services in Dubai, while continuously developing these services and increasing efficiencies by enhancing the hospitals and healthcare centers in the emirate.
He stressed on the importance of this agreement, which reflects partnership between the various Dubai Government entities, in line with the continuous population growth in Dubai, and the expansion of investment and trade activities.
The agreement will be the culmination of joint efforts made to raise the standard of healthcare services at the emirate’s level, as well as bolstering investments and building investor trust in the field of healthcare, said the top DHA official.
As per the agreement, the DHA shall issue a No Objection Certificate ( NOC) for the required activities and the monitoring of personnel and public health facilities operating in the healthcare sector, which have been licensed by Trakhees in the special development areas, with the exception of free zone areas, added Al Maidoor.
Trakhees CEO Arif Obaid Al Dehail said the agreement comes as part of the system guaranteeing co-operation and cohesion between the various entities of the Dubai Government and is aimed at providing the best healthcare services and enhance access for customers living in Dubai’s special development areas.
Al Dehail said the agreement also aims to solidify the concept of investing in Dubai’s healthcare sector, especially in the special development areas, taking into account the highest international standards.-TradeArabia News Service
