Siemens and Dubai Healthcare City announce partnership to support medical education

The memorandum was signed on Wednesday 29th January at the DHCC stand by Kay Zwingenberger, CEO of Siemens Healthcare Middle East and Marwan Abedin, CEO of DHCC, and in the presence of Dr Wajdi Al Daghma, Chief Operating Officer (Strategy & Operation), DHCC and Dr Norbert Gaus, CEO of Customer Solutions Division, Siemens AG Healthcare Sector. The agreement sets out a broad framework for future medical educational initiatives in the UAE and the region.
“This agreement will see us further strengthen our relationship with DHCC, with a focus on the continuous professional development of the Middle East’s medical workforce. This is a core part of our company’s drive to support the sustainable growth of every country that Siemens does business in,” said Zwingenberger.
As part of the collaboration, Siemens will be supplying a mock-up of its Somatom Emotion CT scanner to DHCC’s Khalaf Ahmad Al Habtoor Medical Simulation Center (KHMSC). The center is a state-of-the-art facility that provides medical professionals with hands-on clinical training in a simulated environment. The new equipment from Siemens will be used to help familiarize healthcare teams with some of the latest imaging innovations being used in the region’s hospitals.
Marwan Abedin, Chief Executive Officer, Dubai Healthcare City (DHCC), said: “This partnership with Siemens emphasizes our broader objective towards furthering medical education and supporting sustainable healthcare development in the UAE. Siemens has a strong track record in elevating the healthcare sector in the region, and we look forward to capitalizing on their expertise in providing clinical diagnostic solutions. This collaboration is set to support our mutual mission towards enhancing professional development and tertiary healthcare, and ultimately positioning Dubai as a credible leader in medical education.”
DHCC was launched in 2002 by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. It now has two hospitals and over 120 outpatient medical centers and diagnostic laboratories, with over 4,000 medical professionals working onsite.
