Dr Shamsheer Vay­alil, chair­man and man­ag­ing di­rec­tor of VPS Health­care to which Bur­jeel Hos­pi­tal be­longs, said, “We are ex­tremely de­lighted to an­nounce the open­ing of the state-of-theart car­diac catheter­i­za­tion labo- ra­tory at the Bur­jeel Hos­pi­tal in Al Khuwayr. There couldn’t have been a bet­ter oc­ca­sion to an­nounce this than on the hos­pi­tal’s first an­niver­sary in the coun­try. This ini­tia­tive is in syn­chro­ni­sa­tion with the com­mit­ment of VPS Health­care in en­sur­ing qual­ity of life of our pa­tients.

“The in­ci­dence of car­dio­vas- cu­lar dis­eases is alarm­ingly on the rise in the re­gion. As a med­i­cal provider, it is our re­spon­si­bil­ity to de­liver best health­care which will in turn im­prove longterm eco­nomic growth of the coun­try.”

He added, “The car­diac catheter­i­za­tion lab is part of our ex­pan­sion plans, de­signed to strengthen our med­i­cal ser­vices and raise bench­marks in health­care pro­vi­sion.”

A new Bur­jeel med­i­cal cen­tre is com­ing up at the Palm Mall, he said.

Bur­jeel’s car­diac team in­cludes Dr Adil al Reyami, con­sul­tant in­ter­ven­tional car­di­ol­o­gist; Dr Khal­fan al Se­naidi, pae­di­atric car­di­ol­o­gist; Dr Is­mail al Abri, pae­di­atric car­di­ol­o­gist; Dr Levent Ozdemir, spe­cial­ist in­ter­ven­tional car­di­ol­o­gist and Dr Ra­jan, con­sul­tant - in­ter­nal medicine and Dr Francy, spe­cial­istin­ter­nal medicine.

One of the mod­ern fa­cil­i­ties in the sul­tanate, Bur­jeel Hos­pi­tal opened last year and is a sev­en­star health­care fa­cil­ity that of­fers spe­cialised med­i­cal treat­ment and ser­vices to lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties in line with world-class stan­dards and prac­tices.

The hos­pi­tal pro­vides all core med­i­cal, paramed­i­cal and sup­port ser­vices de­liv­ered by well­trained, ac­cred­ited and skilled pro­fes­sion­als.

The health­care fa­cil­ity, which is part of in­ter­na­tion­ally recog­nised Bur­jeel Hos­pi­tal head­quar­tered in Abu Dhabi, in­cludes clin­i­cal teams from recog­nised hos­pi­tals and uni­ver­si­ties.
