The Princess Grace Hospital and Al Zahra Hospital Dubai, collaborate to enable access to advanced healthcare across the United Arab Emirates (UAE)
The Princess Grace Hospital, part of HCA Healthcare UK, recently visited the Dubai World Trade Centre to participate in the Arab Health 2017 conference, and confirm their partnership with Al Zahra Hospital Dubai to provide access to advanced healthcare across the UAE.
The conference running from 28th January to 1st of February 2017 is the largest healthcare event in the Middle East and North Africa regions, with over 4,000 of the world’s leading healthcare companies in attendance.
The Princess Grace Hospital and Al Zahra Hospital Dubai have teamed up to enable access to advanced healthcare in the UAE, reducing the need for outbound travel for healthcare, and to help establish Dubai as a hub for healthcare needs across the Middle East region.
The partnership sees The Princess Grace Hospital support Al Zahra Hospital Dubai in providing the same high quality, advanced cancer care for patients in Dubai, as they would if they were traveling abroad, increasing access and potentially increasing medical tourism in the region.
Among the treatments on offer being discussed is Hyperthermic Intraperitoneal Chemotherapy (HIPEC), a form of highly concentrated, heated chemotherapy used to directly treat the abdomen (unlike conventional chemotherapy treatment which circulates throughout the body) during surgery.
Charlotte Tempest, CEO of the Princess Grace Hospital commented:
‘We want to build and develop on the existing relationship between The Princess Grace Hospital and Al Zahra Hospital Dubai, both hospitals can benefit and work together to provide patients with the latest advanced technologies and treatment, and ensure continuity of care’
Patients will also benefit from the knowledge and expertise of the two hospitals, the advances in treatment and the developments in technology allowing for previously unmanageable conditions to be treatable.
