Mr. Lee avowed, “Participating in the Obstetrics & Gynecology Congress this year comes in line with our recruitment plan until the hospital is fully operational early 2013. It is one of few assemblies in the region that brings in huge number of professionals in the Obstetrics & Gynecology field and we are excited to meet professionals interested to apply and join our team as the opening date gets closer.”

“Our presence in such important conferences and exhibitions in the region serves as an ideal platform for UEMedical to announce the progress on its various pioneering medical projects currently underway within the UAE including Danat Al Emarat Hospital and the growing network of outpatient center ‘HealthPlus’. Forming an integrated healthcare delivery system is a true testament to UEMedical’s multiple missions of delivering world-class patient care and improving the long term health of the population in the region, stated Farah Al Alami, Marketing & Communications Manager at UEMedical.

UEMedical’s portfolio of projects comes together strategically and will leverage the combined talent and resources of a world-class women and children’s hospital, 6 specialty centers and 14 family clinics to create an integrated healthcare delivery system across Abu Dhabi and the UAE. The impressive developments of UEMedical in 2011 were marked by the recent appointment of an international construction company for the final phase of Danat Al Emarat Women’s & Children’s Hospital, followed by the opening of one of the most advanced fertility centers in the UAE, under UEMedical’s network of premium health centers “HealthPlus”. The remarkable journey continued with another key destination, the opening of HealthPlus Family Health Center in Al Raha Beach in Abu Dhabi, ensuring world-class patient care is kept close to where people live and work.

The HealthPlus outpatient network currently includes HealthPlus Women’s Health Center, HealthPlus Fertility Center, and HealthPlus Family Health Center. An additional 2 centers are planned to be open during 2012.
