20 January 2011

The state-of-the-art facility will bolster Abu Dhabi’s immigration health screening program.

Mubadala Healthcare today announced plans to open a new medical facility in the first quarter of 2011. Capital Health Screening Centre, will provide standard infectious disease screenings for expatriates applying for and renewing their Abu Dhabi residency visas. This new facility will play a vital role in ensuring that Abu Dhabi remains a healthy city in which to live and work by providing these mandatory medical checks for the Emirate’s migrant workforce.

Capital Health Screening Centre will be conveniently located at Al Jazira Sports Stadium on Muroor Road – less than five minutes’ drive from the Department of Immigration on Al Saada (19th) Street. When operational, it will have the capacity to manage up to 300 visa applicants per day as well as providing the option of a premium service with a 24 hour turnaround on results.

The Centre will be operated by Singapore’s AsiaMedic Limited, specialists in disease prevention and early illness detection. AsiaMedic is already working closely in partnership with Mubadala to establish a wellness and diagnostic centre in Abu Dhabi, which is scheduled to open next year.

Mubadala Healthcare is a business unit of Mubadala Development Company, which is wholly-owned by the Government of Abu Dhabi. Its mandate is to provide world-class healthcare facilities and services in Abu Dhabi and the United Arab Emirates through partnerships with renowned international medical organizations.

This latest addition to Mubadala Healthcare’s portfolio will provide Abu Dhabi with greater capacity to process the growing numbers of expatriates who continue to be attracted by the new businesses and industries that result from the Emirate’s ambitious program of economic diversification.

Suhail Al Ansari, Head of Mubadala Healthcare said “We are honored to have been selected by Health Authority Abu Dhabi to provide this essential service. We aim to deliver a world-class facility that welcomes newcomers to Abu Dhabi and helps to ensure that our working community remains safe and healthy, which we believe is vital to the region’s continued growth and prosperity.”

Mr Andi Solaiman, Acting Chief Executive Officer of AsiaMedic said, “I am delighted to expand upon our successful partnership with Mubadala Healthcare through the establishment of this new facility. We look forward to leveraging our medical expertise to provide the highest standards for patients in the region.”
