The legacy of UAE in embracing innovative trends from all parts of the world has no parallels. The same culture prevails in the matter of healthcare industries also. That's the key fact for the prevalence of state-of-the-art hospitals and medical centers here.
We know the prosperity of every industry is measured in terms of market growth and business development. From a personal perspective, I believe, this should not be the measuring scale to assess the growth of healthcare industry. Increasing number of hospitals and health centers indicates unhealthy life style of the people. I would like to stress on the noble responsibility of creating awareness on healthy practices in life by every healthcare industry, including ours. This accountability has to be performed along with care giving, without fail.
Abeer has been in the forefront of the healthcare domain of Saudi Arabia for the last 17 years. In this very short span of time, we have been fortunate to run 15 healthcare facilities in the Kingdom which include high-end medical centers and hospitals. We cater to the healthcare needs of more than 3 million people every year. "Finest healthcare in best affordability" has always been our slogan. We are sure that it is this means of care giving that made us the favorite healthcare destination for lot many patients, particularly the expatriate communities.
The focal point of Abeer's healthcare development initiatives in UAE will be the expansion of Al Raha Hospital in Abu Dhabi which has been taken over recently. By 2018, Al Raha will attain the position of a leading tertiary care hospital in UAE with a bed capacity of more than 150. Also, a 30-bedded hospital for Women and Children in Abu Dhabi will be dedicated in the next year. This hospital will be a high-end referral center equipped with all required facilities, especially for the departments of neonatology, gynecology etc. The advanced feature of this hospital will be luxurious LDRP (Labor Delivery Recovery Postpartum) Birthing Suites. I wish to add that majority of the doctors and other medical professionals in our hospitals here will be academically proficient and western-trained.
We are currently in an attempt to diversify ourselves. By diversifying ourselves, what we really aim is to achieve the status of a globally trusted caregiver. For achieving this vision, we would continually strive to refine and redefine our healthcare innovations.
Abeer has already crossed borders and launched operations in Qatar, India and of course, UAE. We will be very soon making our presence felt in Oman and Kuwait also. We are aligning our vision with the National Health Vision 2020 proclaimed by Qatar Ministry of Public Health. Apart from a premium medical centre Abeer runs in Doha, the group has started implementing plans to build state-of-the-art facilities there comprising medical centers and multispecialty hospitals.
Abeer is confident to win the trust and goodwill from the populace of UAE through quality and affordable care-giving. We will remain passionate in all our activities and engagements. We always encourage our team to keep up the spirit of compassion and empathy.
Let's fly in the plane of ambitions; let's together realize our vision.--
