Commenting on the collaboration, AlKetbi said Mubadala Health's announcement of its expansion in Dubai represents an important addition to Dubai's healthcare system.

Dubai's global position and the exceptional investment opportunities it offers are factors that have led to Dubai becoming a preferred destination for investors, especially in the healthcare sector, explained the director-general.

"Integration of the government and private healthcare sectors in Dubai has created positive competition between medical facilities, providing patients with more extensive treatment options and enhanced access to high-quality healthcare services," he added.

Al Nowai, added, "We have an ambitious plan to extend our geographical footprint across the region and today's announcement represents a major step towards this goal. Dubai has always been an attractive market for healthcare investors and we value the DHA's support as we accelerate the development of our projects in Dubai."

"One of the UAE's leadership directives for the next fifty years is prioritising preventative healthcare in order to reduce the prevalence of lifestyle diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, obesity, and cancer. Our expansion plans in Dubai and other Emirates will support this vision by promoting preventive care, ensuring we provide world-class specialized health services to people across the UAE and visitors to our country," the CEO stated.
