Al Ain Hospital Is Dedicated To Treating Covid 19

The Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (SEHA) decided to dedicate Al Ain Hospital to treating and isolating patients with coronavirus (COVID-19), and will close the hospital to the general public. Current inpatients will be transferred to Tawam Hospital and other nearby medical centres, in line with ongoing efforts to enhance healthcare outcomes and the quality of services provided to Abu Dhabi residents. 

The hospital management, in coordination with SEHA and the Department of Health – Abu Dhabi, as well as various health facilities in Al Ain City, created a comprehensive plan that ensures treatment continuity for inpatients without any delays or interruptions, and without any change in service quality. According to the plan, patients who are currently being treated within the hospital will be transferred to Tawam Hospital and other nearby medical facilities in Al Ain city.

In his remarks, Rashid Saif Al Qubaisi, deputy CEO of SEHA, said that such move is in line with SEHA’s efforts to strengthen and ensure the quality of healthcare services provided to the public, and comes as part of national efforts to curb the spread of the coronavirus pandemic in the country.

He indicated that SEHA has a comprehensive plan in place that ensures optimal healthcare quality, while arrangements taken at Al Ain hospital are aligned with efforts aiming for more specialization in health facilities, adding the technical and medical staff at Al Ain Hospital are trained to tackle various cases. 

According to Hamid Amhi Al Mansouri, CEO of Al Ain Hospital managed by SEHA, stated that the hospital's emergency department will be temporarily closed, with all other emergency cases referred to Tawam hospital. Urgent care cases will be referred to other hospitals operating in Al Ain City, such as NMC, Burjeel, Ain Al Khaleej and other medical and health centres for outpatient treatment and care managed by SEHA. 

Al Mansouri pointed out that patients with chronic diseases will receive the medications at their homes without the need to request them or to come to the hospital. Al Ain Hospital called on patients visiting its outpatient clinics to get in contact in order to ensure timely delivery of their medications while protecting them from infections. 

Patients can directly contact SEHA's customer service centre on 80050 for inquiries, appointment and remarks.
