The new hospital situated at Al-Nahda, the very cusp of Dubai and Sharjah will be catering to the ever-growing needs and convenience of patients in both the regions. This is the second hospital of the group, which has come a long way since its beginning as a small clinic in Sharjah. The Zulekha hospital, Sharjah is today one of the most well-known and trusted health establishments of the region. On its new venture Mr. Taher Shams, President of the Zulekha Healthcare group stated, "Our goal is to provide excellent healthcare facilities under one roof and be committed to offering quality care at affordable prices. We would carry on our philosophy of 'continuous improvement' to extend our services."
The new 75 bedded hospital spanning an area of 82,000 square feet would serve as a multi-speciality center. It would feature super-speciality departments such as Cardiology, Neurology, Endocrinology, Plastic surgery and Laparoscopy in addition to the speciality departments of General Surgery, Orthopaedics, Internal Medicine, Obstetrics & Gynaecology, Paediatrics, and Dermatology among others. Along with a highly competent team of doctors the hospital will house some of the most advanced facilities and equipments to ensure the best treatment.
"To reduce 'patient waiting time', the hospital will have 'multiple consultant doctors' in each speciality so that more patients will be attended to at one time", stated Ms. Zanubia Shams, CEO, Zulekha Healthcare Group.
The hospital has a unique Modular Operating room to minimize Hospital acquired infection in surgical patients. The new hospital's IT enabled service would also ensure that operations such as patient registration, maintenance of medical records and administrative procedures become more efficient. The hospital will also provide 24 hours emergency services like Ambulance facility, pharmacy and trauma care. "Ours will be a persistent effort to focus on enhancing the facilities for our patients," further added Ms. Zanubia Shams.
As part of the expansion programme in phase 2, the Group plans to start a Cardiac Catheterization Lab in association with the world famous Cardiologist Dr. Fayaz Shawl. The hospital is also planning to go in for ISO certification to match world-class quality standards. The Group is looking forward to set up international ties-ups with world-class institutions to leverage on mutual strengths and offer the best healthcare. The Group is also planning to start clinics and pharmacies in all emirates in addition to the already existing medical centers in Dhaid, Karama and Qusais along with pharmacies in Dubai and Sharjah.
On the opening of the new hospital, Dr. Zulekha Daud, founder of the Zulekha Healthcare Group said, "Beyond the technology, besides the specialists, something more is there- the magic of a caring touch.
"In Zulekha Hospital we try to treat the patients with concern, compassion and respect. When they visit us, we at all times do our best to provide them with advice, information and treatment which will allow our philosophy to come to life. At Zulekha hospital, we strive to humanize and demystify the complexities of medical problems through patient education and a caring, thoughtful environment," she concluded.
