Mubadala Healthcare Signs MoU With Dubai Health Authority
(29 April 2012)


Mubadala Healthcare (a business unit of Mubadala Development Company PJSC) and Dubai Health Authority (DHA) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to discuss several key collaboration areas that will facilitate knowledge-sharing, partnership initiatives and improved access to care for patients in Dubai.

The MoU was signed at the premises of Dubai Health Authority by Dr. Mohammed Salim Al Olama, CEO of Hospital Services at DHA, and Suhail Mahmood Al Ansari, Executive Director, Mubadala Healthcare.

The initial areas for collaboration outlined in the MoU relate specifically to three of Mubadala Healthcare’s facilities - Wooridul Spine Centre, Tawam Molecular Imaging Centre and National Reference Laboratory - and focus on the facilitation of patient and laboratory test referrals, knowledge exchange and the inclusion of these facilities in the Government of Dubai’s Enaya network.

Dubai Health Authority (DHA) and Mubadala Healthcare are now working to facilitate referrals to from the DHA network to Wooridul Spine Centre for medical second opinions, physiotherapy and rehabilitation follow ups, and surgical cases that might otherwise be sent abroad for treatment.

In addition, the MoU outlines the intention of the two organizations wherever possible to share and exchange technical support, medical equipment and provision of consultation facilities. This includes the opportunity for Wooridul Spine Centre’s surgical team to utilize the operating theatre facilities at Rashid Hospital when required.

"We are very excited to explore these areas of collaboration and build upon our solid relationship with Dubai Health Authority," said Suhail Mahmood Al Ansari, Executive Director, Mubadala Healthcare. "At the same time, we are delighted to announce the National Reference Laboratory agreement as the first outcome of the MoU and look forward to expanding upon this in the coming months. It is through partnerships and knowledge-sharing initiatives like these that we hope to improve access to our world-class facilities and reduce the need for patients to seek treatment overseas." Dr Mohammad Al Olama, CEO of Hospital Services Sector at DHA said, "At DHA, we are committed to providing specialized care for our patients and this MoU helps us achieve that. The collaboration will ensure our patients have access to world-class health facilities that are available in the UAE."
