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.


Dr. Anwar Sallam, Speaking in the 12th World Medical Tourism Congress (WMTC), which was hosted lately in Abu Dhabi.

 Dr. Sallam pointed out that Sheikh Shakhbout Medical City, which will open phase one in November 2019, will be equipped with the latest medical technology providing best-in-class health care to patients. He recognizes the role of the government in supporting medical tourism and the world-class airlines in the UAE that brings patients to Abu Dhabi. He added that patients from all over the world receiving treatment at SEHA facilities will also benefit from an advanced digital information network, which will enable them to receive valuable information and medical reports, across geographies at a click of a button.

Initiatives such as the Abu Dhabi Medical Tourism E-portal launched by the Abu Dhabi Department of Health and Abu Dhabi Department of Culture and Tourism (DCT), have helped spearhead growth of medical tourism, with SEHA facilities playing a crucial role to ensure the delivery of world-class healthcare.
