Last week, Abu Dhabi-based VPS healthcare opened Medeor 24x7 Hospital, a 100-bed multi-specialty hospital in Bur Dubai, the group's 10th hospital in the UAE and second in Dubai.

Dr Shamsheer Vayalil, Managing Director – VPS Healthcare said the group has an aggressive expansion plan to cater to different segments of patients.

“We already have a pharmaceuticals manufacturing business on a small scale, but in the near future, the division will be expanded,” he said after opening the new hospital in Bur Dubai.

The new hospital will provide holistic healthcare services including major specialties such as Mother and Child Care, Urology, Gastroenterology, General surgery, Family Medicine, Minimally Invasive Surgeries, Orthopedics and Cardiology to the residents of the UAE.

The hospital’s advanced emergency, paediatrics and gynaecology departments will be available round-the-clock to ensure those in need have access to world class care at all times.  Around 600-plus doctors work under the group and more facilities are planned in the Middle East and India.
Dr Shamsheer Vayalil, Managing Director – VPS Healthcare, said: “We are excited to launch Medeor 24x7, VPS Healthcare Group’s 14th facility. The hospital, which is our 10th in the UAE, has allowed us to further strengthen our healthcare services delivery in the country. Medeor 24x7 is an effort to meet the gap for affordable, compassionate and trusted medical services from an expert and friendly team of doctors who prioritise patient comfort, dignity and privacy. We are confident that Medeor 24x7 will prove to be a go-to resource for the community for all their healthcare needs.”
Dr Shajir Gaffar, the CEO of VPS Healthcare – Dubai and Northern Emirates, said, “After thorough consideration of the healthcare facilities in the neighbourhood, we have carefully pieced together a holistic facility that best meets the community’s needs. The hospital combines the latest technology in medicine with an expert team of doctors that tend to the patients with a truly remarkable and refreshing level of warmth and compassion of a family environment. We are confident that the community will find in us a trustworthy healthcare services provider.”
“The opening of Medeor 24x7 Hospital is a stepping stone for our expansion plans within Dubai and the Northern Emirates. We pride ourselves on the world class medical expertise and the state of art technologies we offer the UAE community as we believe the health of a nation is an integral component of society’s development,” said Dr. Ibtesam Al Bastaki - Director of VPS Healthcare for Dubai and Northern Emirates.
