UAE: Troubled NMC opens medical centre in Karama

Troubled private health provider NMC Health has opened a new Royal Medical Centre in Karama, Abu Dhabi.

“We are extremely honoured and excited to open yet another branch of our leading multispecialty medical centre to address the ever-changing needs of the community,” said chief executive Michael Davis.

“We are hoping that in the current pandemic scenario, a community centre such as this will act like a front liner allowing government and private hospitals to focus on providing secondary and tertiary level of care,” he added.

The Royal Medical Centre is equipped with advanced laboratory services and a -art radiology unit that includes ultrasound with colour Doppler and X-ray unit, as well as a 1.5 Tesla MRI machine.

The centre hosts a team of international consultants and specialists, comprising of over 30 doctors, 35 nurses and paramedics. It provides services in obstetrics & gynaecology, paediatrics, general surgery, family medicine, orthopaedics, urology, paediatric dentistry, dermatology, ENT, endocrinology, ophthalmology, cardiology with TMT and ECHO, and physiotherapy as well as a pharmacy.

Alvarez & Marsal, the joint administrators for NMC Health have said that they expect the company to be put into liquidation. Various of its assets are currently up for sale.
