The American Hospital Dubai has just opened an Advanced Rehabilitation Center to provide specialty care for patients requiring long-term care for serious conditions such as stroke or spinal cord injuries. The Center combines high-tech and high-touch to optimize the expertise of a multidisciplinary team. The aim is to get the patient back into the family home and community, living life as normally as possible. The new dedicated facility is located in the hospital’s new Bed Tower, with a total of 22 private rooms and more than 20 staff.
Peter Makowski, CEO of the American Hospital Dubai, added: “In 2016, the American Hospital Dubai will focus on three major themes through the course of the year, each of which will help enhance our clinical services and patient care. The themes are – patient access to services, personalized medicine, and innovation. 2016 will be another landmark year for the American Hospital Dubai, with the launch of exciting new initiatives and innovative services that will continue the hospital’s pioneering tradition. All of these are based firmly on our JCI and CAP accreditations, which were reaffirmed in 2015, maintaining our perfect record in these leading international accreditation programs. One of our major developments in 2015 was the launch of our first primary care clinic in the community and we are delighted with the response over the first 12 months of operation. In fact, we are now extending services to include Gynaecology and Dermatology.”
