King’s College Hospital London in the UAE (KCH) has officially opened the doors of its Dubai Marina Medical Centre, the first facility with British NHS standards to be located in Dubai Marina. The centre was inaugurated by His Excellency Humaid Al Qutami, Director-General of the Dubai Health Authority and H.E. Ahmed H. Al Tayer, Chairman of King’s College Hospital London in the UAE in presence of high-level officials.
The newly appointed CEO, Christian Schuhmacher, announced KCH’s plans on providing international standards of care and focussing on primary healthcare as frontline care. Speaking at the Marina Medical Centre opening ceremony, Schuhmacher stated, “The culture of King’s is to provide the best of British healthcare by complying to UK evidence-based care. Our utilisation results over the past year of other KCH facilities in the UAE not only demonstrate KCH’s unwavering commitment to healthcare in the UAE but also show the real progress we are making in delivering evidence-based healthcare. We constantly strive to provide the most cost-effective and healthiest treatment options for our patients.”
The findings from the one-year review of other KCH facilities in Dubai showed that a Family Medicine Consultant rather than a Specialist treated 30 per cent of patients at KCH in the UAE. “This is in line with our concept of primary care being the first line of treatment,” said Schuhmacher “We are fervent advocates of evidence-based healthcare, and are proud to bring this ethos of care to the community in Dubai Marina.”
The new facility, located in The Residences at Marina Gate I, in the heart of Dubai Marina, brings KCH’s UAE footprint to a total of three Medical Centres; the first being the flagship clinic in Abu Dhabi, and the one-year-old Medical Centre in Jumeirah. The Marina Medical Centre specialises in Family Medicine, Paediatrics, Paediatric Allergy, Paediatric Hepatology, Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Foetal Medicine, Plastic Surgery, ENT as well as Dentistry, and will feed alongside the other clinics into the upcoming hospital, set to open in January 2019. All KCH medical centres are fully integrated 365 days a year with King’s College Hospital in London.
