The Dubai Health Authority (DHA) and the Emirates Islamic Bank have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to establish a dermatology and cosmetology centre in Dubai, media reports said.
The new centre will be set up in Rashid Hospital. Both parties will also work to further enhance the services of the respiratory medicine department and the respiratory pulmonary laboratory at the Rashid Hospital.
The agreement was signed at the DHA’s headquarters in Dubai by Ahmed Al Nuaimi, chief executive at Joint Corporate Support Services at the DHA and Salah Amin, chief executive at Emirates Islamic Bank. Humaid Al Qutami, director-general of the DHA and Hesham Abdulla Al Qassim, chairman of Emirates Islamic Bank were also present.
Salah Amin told the media, “We are proud to contribute to Dubai Health Authority and support the strategic development plans of Rashid Hospital, one of the UAE’s leading healthcare providers. As one of the country’s leading Islamic banks, Emirates Islamic is committed to supporting the development of UAE’s healthcare sector in delivering world-class health services that exceed patient expectations and the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to position the UAE as a global healthcare hub of the wider Middle East region and beyond.”
Earlier this year, the UAE’s Ministry of Health and Prevention launched an AI-backed healthcare app during the Arab Health 2020 event. The UAE healthcare app is designed to help doctors and medical providers further understand the health conditions of such patients.
