UAE’s leading healthcare group Zulekha Hospital has entered into a mutual agreement with Israel-based Health Plus to cooperate in the field of medical tourism and to leverage healthcare systems by sharing medical expertise and best practices.

Following the signing of the agreement, Senior Director Administration at Zulekha Hospital Dr. Zia Ur Rahman Shah and Dr. Tatiana Zhelninova, Head of Health Plus the Middle East, stated that the partnership will for the first time allow patients from Israel who are undergoing dialysis to receive treatment in the UAE. 

The program ‘Holiday Dialysis’ enables patients who previously could not travel due to dialysis treatment to visit Dubai once travel restrictions ease and continue their dialysis along with their holidays with quality health treatments. Other health services will include health checks, advanced oncology, neurosurgery, neurology, as well as telemedicine.

“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.”

David Berezin, CEO 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.”

Both Zulekha Hospital and Health Plus are supported by their founders’ strong vision to be able to provide affordable, high-quality medical care to patients since the early years.
