NIGERIA— RivExcel, a global healthcare consulting firm, and American Hospital Dubai, part of the Mohamed & Obaid Al Mulla Group, have teamed to open three medical tourism offices in Nigeria as part of a 30-office expansion throughout Africa and Eastern Europe.

This expansion will provide broader access to quality healthcare services, demonstrating both businesses’ commitment to improving global health outcomes.

Part of the development strategy is to open 30 offices in strategic African and Eastern European areas to support the UAE’s aspirations to become a worldwide medical tourism powerhouse.

The Representative Office in Lagos will act as a hub for disseminating American Hospital Dubai’s renowned healthcare services, building a better link between the hospital and its different populations.

The partnership is expected to transform the healthcare environment by bringing cutting-edge medical products and expertise to a wider audience.

Mr. Buti Al Mulla, Chairman of the Boards of Directors of the Mohamed & Obaid AlMulla Group; Sherif Beshara, Group CEO of the Mohamed & Obaid AlMulla Group and American Hospital Dubai; and Dr. Marwan AlMulla, CEO of the Health Regulation Sector at the Dubai Health Authority (DHA), attended the event.

Tonye Princewill, RivExel’s Executive Chairman, and Tayyibat Mohammed, Nigeria’s Consul General in Dubai, were also present.

Sherif Beshara noted that the UAE has successfully consolidated its position as one of the top global medical tourism destinations, resulting in increased international trust in its healthcare sector, excellence in delivering unique experiences, and the launch of numerous initiatives to attract global medical tourists.

He went on to say that the UAE’s experience, innovation, high healthcare standards, and collaborations boost its international reputation in this field.

He concluded by emphasizing the American Hospital Dubai’s commitment to providing advanced medical technologies and collaborating with global life sciences experts, which is reflected in their dedication to innovation, cutting-edge, multi-speciality healthcare services, and patient safety and satisfaction. 

Mr. Prinewill expressed his pride in partnering with American Hospital Dubai in launching this groundbreaking initiative, noting that this strategic alliance with American Hospital Dubai will provide access to high-quality healthcare services that are accessible to everyone at any time, across the country.

RivExcel plans to replicate this success in the next few months by opening another representative office in Abuja, reaffirming its commitment to reaching out to more nations, including South Africa.

South Africa is one of Africa’s most medically sophisticated nations, making it an ideal target for the transfer of world-class technology and medical collaboration.

RivExcel has been in talks with Nomafrench Mbombo, the Western Cape Provincial Minister of Health, about opening additional offices in South Africa.

American Hospital Dubai, for its part, is the foremost private healthcare provider in the Middle East, having been created in 1996 to deliver world-class medical services to the community.

The American Hospital also maintains seven dedicated clinics in Dubai Media City, Al Barsha, Al Khawaneej, Jumeirah, Mira, Dubai Hills, and Nad Al Sheba, bringing healthcare closer to the community.
