Super-Specialty Hospital in Dubai Gets Advanced Technology from GE
One of the most exciting trends in healthcare in the Gulf region is the opening of super-specialty hospitals that are bringing the most advanced treatment options to patients in the region. However, delivering this level of care requires diagnostic equipment that improves patient experience and clinical outcomes.
GE Healthcare is helping by equipping the radiology department of a new 100-bed super specialty facility in Dubai that is set to open this year. Operated by King’s College Hospital London in the UAE, the facility is a joint venture of the Al Tayer Group, Dubai Investments and UK-based Ashmore Group.
In addition to specialist practices in pediatrics, diabetes, endocrinology, and obstetrics & gynecology, the hospital is set to bring its world-leading expertise in liver transplant medicine.
GE’s diagnostic equipment will contribute to improving patient experience and greater operational efficiency for the healthcare practitioners at the hospital.
“Our suite of digital and advanced radiology equipment for King’s College Hospital London in the UAE are chosen to bring the next level of care for patients,” said David Mezher, General Manager- Middle East, GE Healthcare. “In addition to minimizing patient discomfort, the solutions are designed to enhance the convenience of the clinicians, enabling them to achieve better levels of work efficiency.”
GE Healthcare’s technology that will be deployed at the hospital includes radiology systems, including the Revolution HD, a computed tomography solution that delivers high-quality images at low dose, helping physicians diagnose disease earlier and faster; the SIGNA™ Artist, GE’s most advanced and intuitive 1.5T MR technology which allows for hyper scanning with astonishing imaging and impressive speed, with less noise; Connexity, a 90/90 remote tilting table system with single end support and variable height tabletop that allows for uncompromised access and automatic patient positioning with X-ray-free centering; the DiscveryXR656 Plus, for advanced digital imaging and that helps address complex clinical needs; the mobile x-ray system OptimaTM XR220amx, which takes digital x-ray to the point of care; and GE Healthcare is also providing its Senographe Pristina, a major advancement in breast cancer screening, designed to help reduce the discomfort, pain, and anxiety of a mammogram.
