Muslim female doctor examines female patients

Mubadala Investment Company, Abu Dhabi’s sovereign wealth fund will bring six of its fully owned medical assets into an integrated network to provide specialised care. Targeted primarily at Abu Dhabi and the other UAE states, they seek also to become regional centres of excellence on diagnostics and treatment, so reducing the need to travel abroad for complex medical care.

Mubadala’s healthcare division is focused on enhancing the patient experience, seeking innovative solutions, driving collaboration across the sector and forging global partnerships to elevate clinical outcomes.

The six Mubadala Health facilities – Abu Dhabi Telemedicine Centre, Amana Healthcare, Capital Health Screening Centre, Healthpoint, Imperial College London Diabetes Centre and National Reference Laboratory will work together. It states that the Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi will remain an integral part of the network, and collectively, alongside the six organisations, will address some of the most vital health and diagnostic issues in the region.

This includes long-term care and rehabilitation, telemedicine and corporate medical screening, treatment of chronic diseases, comprehensive lab and testing services, and a range of patient care including specialties such as endocrinology, orthopaedics, cardiology, neurology, dentistry, and digestive diseases.

Abu Dhabi is again open to international medical tourists. All travellers must have a negative PCR or DPI test result no older than 72 hours, but must take another test on day six after entering the emirate.

Participants in the National Vaccination Programme and Phase III of the vaccine clinical trials who have active icons on Alhosn app (golden star or letter E), are exempted from quarantine requirements when returning from abroad.
