EHG will create integrated healthcare clusters that cover the entire spectrum of medical needs, with special emphasis on women and children.

Saleh Al Hamed, Chief Executive Officer, Amanah, and Omar Al Shunnar, Executive Director, Emaar Healthcare Group, signed the MoU in Dubai.

They announced that the first project to be rolled out will be a specialised medical facility for women and children to be developed on 300,000 sq ft of land in a prime location in the heart of the capital city. EHG will create a new benchmark in medical care with the premium hospital offering value-added healthcare services and featuring state-of-the-art technology. The portfolio of the secondary care hospital will comprise gynaecology and obstetrics, neonatology, paediatric medicine and surgery, and family medicine to better serve Abu Dhabi residents. Al Shunnar said: "EHG is driven by a vision to roll out an integrated approach to healthcare that brings in international advances in medical technology for the benefit of the public and medical professionals. EHG is working to create Centres of Excellences in diverse medical fields, especially in those relevant to the region. One of the pressing concerns here is the need for world-class centres specialised in maternal and perinatal conditions in the UAE." He added: "The need for maternal and perinatal disease treatment is increasing in the region. The new facility is therefore focused on providing dedicated medical care for women and children in Abu Dhabi. The Hospital medical portfolio of this secondary care will also specialise in the entire gamut of family medicine that meets modern-day healthcare requirements."

Al Hamed said: "The integrated approach of EHG aligns with the UAE Government Strategy for healthcare that encourages the private sector to play a bigger role in developing the healthcare system in the country. It also reflects the vision of our Chairman Shaikh Rashed bin Hamdan Al Nahyan in diversifying the business model, which is imperative in today's world. Amanah's partnership leverages on the goal of Emaar Healthcare Group to be a global healthcare provider."
