UAE's First private rehabilitation centre in launches

DUBAI, 31st January 2016 (WAM) — Humaid Mohammad Al Qutami, Chairman and Director-General of Dubai Health Authority has inaugurated the first ever private in-patient rehabilitation centre in the UAE.

The new centre is part of a partnership between the Canadian Specialist Hospital and Wagner Health and Care, a leading Austrian provider of rehabilitation services.

The AED35-million centre will provide a total of 48 beds in super luxurious rooms for its medium and long term in-patient services in addition to its outpatient and day services. Rehabilitation aims to restore patients to their fullest overall potential as fast as possible, after a surgery, grave disease or chronic pain.

Mohammad Rashid Al Falasi, Chairman of Canadian Specialist Hospital, said patients in the UAE flew to Europe and Asia for treatment and rehabilitation, but now the new centre will address their needs and help them within UAE and ensure that they get the best treatment here.

“This centre will also cater to the needs of patients within the other GCC countries and will significantly contribute towards the country’s medical tourism industry,” he added.

Dr. Stephan Wagner, CEO and owner of Wagner Health & Care during the launch of the centre said: “Our team of experts adopts a multi-disciplinary approach, ensuring that we personalize each step of the treatment for the patient while utilizing cutting-edge equipment and facilities.”
