“The hospital has cost us over Dhs.100 Million so far. The contractors have done a tremendous job and it looks like we are opening one month ahead of schedule.” Said Dr. Riad Al Jord, Specialist Ophthalmologist and Managing Director of International Modern Hospital.
“We believe that our investment is very timely and the healthcare market is crying out for high standards in medical treatments in the region. The growth of Dubai in the last three years and with the advent of more and more professional people to the UAE the demand for quality health service we provide is bound to increase. This growth is not just happening here in the UAE but regionally as well.
“We also believe the high quality medical care we provide, the luxurious surroundings coupled with the latest medical technology, highly qualified surgeons and medical staff will make IMH an attractive prospect for patients from all over the region.” Added Dr. Al Jord
The International Medical Group which also owns International Private Hospital, the first private hospital in Dubai, as well as the International Medical Centre in Jumairah has strong ties with several international medical institutes and well respected specialists in various medical fields. Dr. Al Jord, who trained under the famous Prof. Fyodorov, opened the first modern Opthalmogical clinic in the UAE. The Group also has excellent ties with the renowned Barraquer Institute in Barcelona, Spain, which specializes in corneal graft and other complicated eye surgeries
“Our boutique hospital will set the standard in superior patient care and the quality of the facilities available. IMH does not have single rooms. All our patient rooms consist of suites which includes a separate room for the relatives and friends to sit in to ensure minimum disturbance for the patient.
“More than 95 % of our staff are now on board and we are ready to start receiving patients in the next two week. Our outpatient clinics, ophthalmology department, cardiology and ENT clinics are going to be ready to open their doors by the end of the week.” Added Dr. Al Jord
International Modern Hospital is conveniently located next to the four star Chelsea Hotel also opening soon which is going to make it convenient for out-of-town patients and their accompanying family.
