Abu Dhabi, 26 October 2019:  Dr. Anwar Sallam, Group Chief Medical Officer at Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (SEHA), confirms that SEHA is committed to provid the highest quality care to patients, in line with the globally recognized benchmarks. He highlighted that SEHA is partnering with the Department of Health in Abu Dhabi and other entities in order to strengthen Abu Dhabi's position in the field of medical tourism, as the Emirate continues to attract visitors from all around the world.
