UAE – Abu Dhabi’s health sector has received a big boost following the commissioning of six newly upgraded dialysis centers in Al Dhafra region that will benefit over 80 kidney failure patients.

Abu Dhabi has upgraded its dialysis facilities with advanced medical devices and skilled medical staff to improve healthcare care services among in-patients receiving haemodialysis treatment.

It is a healthcare win for the United Arab Emirates (UAE) as Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (SEHA) has commenced its strategic plan to develop and modernize dialysis centers in the Al Dhafra region.

In a press release, SEHA announced: “In total, six specialized kidney centers are now providing the highest level of excellence and efficiency to serve the residents of Madinat Zayed, Ghayathi, Sila, Mirfa, and the Delma and Liwa Islands.”

SEHA outlined that it is working on opening a new center in the city of Liwa that will serve residents, its neighbouring areas as well as visitors to Mureb Hill and those who attend the different Liwa festivals throughout the year.

The expansion programme of kidney care services in the Al Dhafra region will ease pressure on the dialysis center at Madinat Zayed Hospital, as SEHA races against time to reduce patient load at the hospital’s intensive care unit.

There has been an increase in the number of dialysis cases, and existing centers have been expanded to accommodate more kidney failure patients. The services are now readily available in all cities within the Al Dhafra region,” SEHA said.

Moreover, the updates are part of the latest international medical and quality standards applied within Abu Dhabi Health Services Company, which is an independent, public joint stock company created to develop the curative activities of the public healthcare system in the emirate.

This has enabled patients to receive effective treatment coupled with continuous and thorough follow-up care by the qualified SEHA medical staff, selected with great care and in accordance with the highest international standards,” underscored the integrated healthcare platform.

The updated healthcare units will serve also in treating patients and preventing their chances of developing kidney failure as well as monitoring different pregnancies for chronic dialysis patients.

In addition, the upgraded dialysis centers have sufficient medical devices to serve more than double the existing number of kidney failure cases and deal with various pathological cases while ensuring the safety of patients.
