New Cleveland Clinic cancer centre in Abu Dhabi


According to the article, cancer is known to be the third leading cause of death in Abu Dhabi.

The 17,000-square-metre centre will be modelled on Cleveland Clinic’s Taussig Cancer Centre in Ohio, and provide diagnostic, medical, surgical, palliative and adjunctive services.

"This expansion of cancer services at Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi marks a significant step in the fight against the disease in the UAE. Patients will get access to centralised oncology services, which will complement the existing healthcare landscape," said Waleed Al Muhairi, chairman at the hospital and deputy group chief executive officer at Abu Dhabi Government-owned investment firm, Mubadala.

Dr Rakesh Suri, chief executive officer at Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi, said over 2,000 patients have been treated at the hospital since it began offering surgical and medical care for cancer patients about two years ago.
