Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi 16% increase in international patients


The Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi made the statement during the Arabian Travel Market event.  It is one of a number of major healthcare providers participating in the event to promote Abu Dhabi’s medical tourism offering for international patients.

“A major part of our strategy for ensuring sustainable growth lies in being able to treat a growing population of international patients at the same time as providing comprehensive services for people in the UAE,” explains Sara Al Sharouqi, Executive Director of Marketing and Communications at Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi in the press release. "Working alongside our partners in Abu Dhabi and leveraging the resources of the global Cleveland Clinic network, we’re able to ensure that patients receive immediate attention from North American Board certified (or equivalent) doctors."

The hospital recently broke ground on construction of a dedicated oncology center in Abu Dhabi.  It is also one of the foundation partners of the Abu Dhabi Medical Tourism e-portal, a digital platform that enables visitors to Abu Dhabi to access a full range of medical services. Through the e-portal, visitors can access medical tourism insurance packages, visa support, appointment booking, hotels, and transportation. 

There are increasing concerns that the UAE is now over supplied with clinics and hospitals. For an in-depth analysis of the medical travel market in the UAE, visit the IMTJ Country Profile.
