Johnson & Johnson, a healthcare multinational which markets its products and services in 175 countries around the world, has also announced that it will establish its own Training and Simulation Centre at DHCC.

The Johnson & Johnson Training and Simulation Centre will be established in partnership with the Centre for Healthcare Planning and Quality (CPQ) to provide accredited programmes. CPQ has been jointly set up by Dubai Healthcare City and the world's leading medical education provider, Harvard Medical International (HMI).

Johnson & Johnson, will access the facilities and assistance of the CPQ to prepare internationally accredited educational programmes, especially crafted for the region. From its base at Dubai Healthcare City, the multinational will deploy consumer-oriented educational programmes.

The company has already started the construction work of its regional headquarters. “Operating from DHCC, we will not only provide medical products and services, but we will join efforts with DHCC to develop the medical education sector and provide good medical programmes for physicians and patients. The company also plans to do medical research to meet the needs of patients in the UAE and the region in general,” said Fransois Jenout, Regional Manager of Johnson & Johnson.

“Establishing such a well-developed complex that houses some of the world's best medical institutions is a step forward in the development of the healthcare sector,” added Jeanot.

Johnson & Johnson will utilise its location at the Dubai Healthcare City as a central services unit that will cover and serve the entire Middle East. “We are very glad to welcome Johnson & Johnson. It is our ambition to create a facility at DHCC that is unrivalled anywhere in the world," said Saeed Al Muntafiq, Chairman of Dubai Healthcare City.
