According to UEMedical, the signing of the letter of intent with Parkway of Singapore will bring the first premium “one-stop” medical and health screening facility dedicated exclusively for women. “It brings us great pleasure to collaborate once again with Parkway in bringing a leading wellness concept to the region,” said Managing Director and CEO Mohammed Ali Al Shorafa.

“We strongly believe in providing the highest quality healthcare and screening facilities for the female community in the UAE and hope to help women understand that by investing in preventative health they can enjoy healthier and more productive lives. Our focus on Women’s wellness is one of its kind here in the UAE, and we are proud to be the pioneers in this endeavour.”

Al Shorafa said amid growing concern over the high burden of chronic and other non-communicable diseases in the emirate, LUXE Wellness Centre for Women will offer a more robust proposal for health screening and aims to support the Abu Dhabi Health Authority (HAAD) in its population screening and intervention programme ‘Weqaya’ (prevention), which has become mandatory for UAE nationals.

The centre will provide premium high-end specialised diagnostic screening including ultrasounds, mammograms, bone densitometry, stress tests, specialist physicians, alongside an elaborate aesthetics programme.
