Mubadala Healthcare, a business unit of Mubadala Development Company (Mubadala), today announced plans to expand its Wooridul Spine Centre project with an outpatient facility in Dubai, opening early this year.
The new Centre represents an extension of the relationship with Korean spine care specialists, Wooridul, who will manage and operate this outpatient facility in addition to their flagship facility, which is scheduled to open in Abu Dhabi in 2012. The flagship Abu Dhabi centre will offer a comprehensive range of both inpatient and outpatient treatments.
Suhail Al Ansari, Head of Mubadala Healthcare, said “We are pleased to expand our relationship with Wooridul Spine Hospital with the opening of Wooridul Spine Centre Dubai this year.
Through our partnership with Wooridul to develop these facilities, we are working to address the incidence of chronic back and neck conditions in the UAE and to reduce the need for patients to travel abroad for specialized spinal treatment.”
“Back pain, whether due to minor injuries or severe degenerative conditions, is a common health problem in the UAE,” said Dr Chan-Shik Shim, Medical Director of the Wooridul Spine Centre. “We are very excited to have the opportunity to bring our services to the region.”
The new Dubai facility will be located near Al Safa 2 on Sheikh Zayed Road, next to Noor Islamic Bank metro station. The Abu Dhabi facility is currently under development at Arzanah, the new-mixed use development adjacent to Zayed Sports City, and is scheduled to open in the Arzanah Medical Complex in 2012.
