Montefiore agreement targets patients from Abu Dhabi and Dubai


‘There are few institutions in America that offer unique expertise like Montefiore, and we appreciate our relationship with the doctors, nurses and medical teams who are providing specialty care that is not available in the Emirates,’ said Mohamed Al Hamli, under secretary at the DOH Abu Dhabi.

Montefiore’s international department has also created a visiting doctor programme, so that providers from Montefiore can go to hospitals in various countries to share their expertise.

The international department opened in 2013 and handles every aspect of a patient’s care, as well as the needs of their family, from transport and accommodation to visa applications and translation services.

‘Families travel thousands of miles because they know the care that we provide is second to none,’ said Irene Gebrael, senior director of the international department at Montefiore Health System. ‘Equally as important is that when people come to us, whether from abroad or the Bronx, we treat them like family, doing the best we can to provide a home away from home.’

Montefiore Health System operates ten hospitals, including the Children’s Hospital at Montefiore, Burke Rehabilitation Hospital and more than 200 outpatient ambulatory care sites.
