Zulekha Hospital UAE and Israel Based Health Plus Join Hands with an Aim to Promote Medical Tourism and Strengthen Regional Healthcare
Zulekha Hospital (UAE) and Israel based Health Plus, which is an International Marketing Arm of Hadassah Hospital have signed a mutual agreement to cooperate in the field of Medical Tourism.
Dubai is widely renowned for the excellent infrastructure and exceptional medical facilities, as well as hospitality services offered to international patients seeking top quality health care. This partnership will further strengthen both healthcare systems with exchange of medical expertise and best practices.
Senior Director Administration at Zulekha Hospital Dubai Dr. Zia Ur Rahman Shah and Dr. Tatiana Zhelninova, Head of Health Plus Middle East, in their statements, following the signing of this agreement, mentioned that it is the first time that dialysis will be included for patients from Israel, under Holiday Dialysis, meaning patients who could not travel with ongoing dialysis treatment, are now able to travel to Dubai once travel restrictions ease and still continue their dialysis, combining holidays and quality health treatments. Other health services include health checks, advanced oncology, neurosurgery, neurology, as well as Telemedicine.
Mr. Taher Shams, Managing Director of Zulekha Healthcare Group said: “We consider this to be a great collaborative opportunity between two healthcare entities and regions which will further support the socio-economic progress across borders. We are happy to create this joint progressive opportunity for Israeli and UAE healthcare professionals.”
Mr. David Berezin, C.E.O. of Health Plus added, “Dubai and Israeli medicine are very well known for their major achievements. When two renowned healthcare service providers become one, then the outcome can only be a commendable one. That is exactly what we aim at.”
Health Plus is a Worldwide Health Services provider, offering treatment at the most innovative and technologically-advanced medical institutions in the world, staffed with highly-specialized scientists who are considered to be pioneers in their fields. Since 2008, Health Plus has been an approved representative of Hadassah University Hospital of Jerusalem authorized to refer patients from Cyprus Russia, Greece and other countries, while over the past year, it has been cooperating with hospitals across Israel as well as distinguished medical institutions in Cyprus, Paris, Greece and now Germany.
Both Zulekha Hospital and Health Plus are backed by their Founders’ strong vision to be able to provide affordable, high quality medical care to patients since the early years. Both parties strongly believe that this partnership will not only be mutually beneficial, but will offer great benefit to both economies and healthcare systems.
