The initiative comes as part of the efforts by PureHealth – the UAE’s largest integrated healthcare platform and its subsidiary Ambulatory Healthcare Services (AHS) to ensure quick, easy, and convenient visa medical check-ups and screening facilities.

The centre was inaugurated in the presence of Matar Saeed Rashed Al Nuaimi, director general of the Abu Dhabi Public Health Centre (ADPHC) and Dr Omar Al Jabri, chief medical officer of the AHS.

Al Nuaimi underlined that the leadership in the emirate is committed to providing the best preventive and curative health facilities and medical services to all community members.
