We are confident the world’s leading consumer reference guide for medical tourism will bring even greater awareness of DHCC as a world-class medical center to healthcare consumers throughout the region and the world.

Josef Woodman, CEO of Patients Beyond Borders and author of the Patients Beyond Borders Dubai Healthcare City Edition, has been selected as a featured panelist at the 37th Annual Arab Health Exhibition and Congress in Dubai, January 23 – 26, 2012. The event, which attracts more than 71,000 healthcare professionals from 60 countries, is the largest gathering of healthcare industry leaders and influencers in the Middle East.

Woodman will participate with a panel of experts at 3:30 p.m. on Tuesday, January 24, 2012, to discuss “Globalization in Healthcare — An Opportunity or Threat for Healthcare Providers in the Arab World?” The session, moderated by Dr. Sanjiv Malik, CEO of DM Healthcare in Dubai, also includes Mack Banner, CEO, Bumrungrad International Hospital, Bangkok; Cathy Easter, CEO, Methodist International Hospital, Houston, TX; and Dr. Ayesha Mohammed Abdullah, Managing Director of Sciences Cluster: Dubai Healthcare City (DHCC), Dubiotech, and Enpark.

Produced by Healthy Travel Media in partnership with DHCC, Patients Beyond Borders: Dubai Healthcare City Edition is the world’s first publication to feature medical tourism in the Middle East. The 156-page guidebook, to be published in English and Arabic for international distribution in January 2012 — the Arabic version will be available in April 2012 — offers an in-depth overview of Joint Commission International (JCI)–accredited hospitals, as well as medical centers and clinics based in DHCC and accredited by the Center for Healthcare Planning and Quality, accommodations, and essential medical travel information for Dubai. DHCC, located in the heart of Dubai and home to internationally renowned healthcare providers offering high-quality care, is poised to become a leading medical travel destination for patients in the region and beyond.

“We believe that the 2012 Arab Health Exhibition and Congress in Dubai will be the perfect venue to formally launch Patients Beyond Borders: Dubai Healthcare City Edition,” said Dr. Abdullah. “In line with our vision to attract medical tourism to Dubai, we are confident the world’s leading consumer reference guide for medical tourism will bring even greater awareness of DHCC as a world-class medical center to healthcare consumers throughout the region and the world.”
