Australia-based healthcare solutions provider, Aspen Medical has opened its first of six primary healthcare centers in Abu Dhabi.

Aspen Medical launched a community Primary Healthcare Centre in Al Wathba following the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Department of Health – Abu Dhabi (DoH) to cover nine areas in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain.

Ms. Hind Al Zaabi, executive director, of the healthcare facilities sector at DoH, said the department aims to ensure access to quality healthcare services for all residents in the emirate.

The new community center seeks to serve residents in the Al Wathba region and the surrounding areas. Services include general practice and family medicine, obstetrics, gynecology, pediatrics and dentistry. Aspen Medical has launched an initial network of six healthcare centers to serve residents across nine areas in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain, including Shakhbout City, Umm Ghaffa, Al Dhahra, Al Maleeh and Al Salamat.

“Residential Primary Healthcare Centers are essential lifelines that provide a vital link between specialist healthcare providers and remote communities, providing a range of preventative screening services and managing both chronic and acute health care for their populations. We trust that Aspen Medical’s new community healthcare centers will play an increasingly important role in the ongoing modernization of the UAE’s healthcare system.”

The DoH has been working closely with healthcare providers in the emirate to implement its primary care model that makes primary healthcare services more accessible to all patients. The new primary healthcare network symbolizes Aspen Medical’s contribution to the Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030 of creating a world-class healthcare system for all residents.

Mr. Glenn Keys, founder and executive chairman of Aspen Medical, said that “We create comfortable and welcoming environments; ones that we would happily trust to treat our own families. We believe in being recognized for outstanding work, and we remain committed to our ethos of going the extra mile. These pillars will be the backbone of our new Primary Healthcare Centre and all our future ones across Abu Dhabi.”
