The sign­ing cer­e­mony took place re­cently, where Sana Mo­ham­mad Suhail, Un­der­sec­re­tary at the Min­istry of Com­mu­nity Devel­op­ment and Dr Ge­orges Feghali, COO of Emi­rates Health­care Com­pany, signed the agree­ment on be­half of their re­spec­tive en­ti­ties.

The co­op­er­a­tion agree­ment aims at achiev­ing the strate­gic ob­jec­tives of the Min­istry, which seeks to sup­port the UAE fam­i­lies and pro­vide so­cial care, devel­op­ment and sus­tain­able ser­vices to THE BENEICIARY seg­ments. As per THE agree­ment, Emi­rates Re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion and Home­care Cen­ter will pro­vide med­i­cal sup­port and home care ser­vices to the elderly across all its branches in the UAE. Ad­di­tion­ally, Emi­rates Re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion and Home­care Cen­ter will par­tic­i­pate in all so­cial ac­tiv­i­ties or­gan­ised for peo­ple with spe­cial needs and the elderly in co­op­er­a­tion with the Min­istry of Com­mu­nity Devel­op­ment.

Com­ment­ing at the sign­ing cer­e­mony, Suhail said, “The Min­istry’s agree­ment with Emi­rates Health­care Com­pany is in line with our ef­forts to sup­port Fed­eral Gov­ern­ment’s Vi­sion 2021. We aim to pro­vide the high­est qual­ity so­cial ser­vices, while de­vel­op­ing strate­gic al­liances be­tween fed­eral and lo­cal gov­ern­ment en­ti­ties to­gether with the pri­vate sec­tor to up­lift fam­i­lies in need. As an or­gan­i­sa­tion we re­main com­mit­ted to em­power peo­ple with spe­cial needs and the elderly of our so­ci­ety. While our part­ner­ship with Emi­rates Health­care Com­pany will sup­port Emi­rati fam­i­lies to avail of the best so­cial care and devel­op­ment, it also relects our Fo­cus on De­vel­op­ing strate­gies and launch­ing na­tional ini­tia­tives, which are in line with the di­rec­tives of our wise lead­er­ship.”

As per the agree­ment, Emi­rates Health­care Com­pany will work closely with the Min­istry of Com­mu­nity Devel­op­ment in de­vel­op­ing in­te­grated and holis­tic health ser­vices and pro­grammes to ad­dress phys­i­cal, emo­tional and men­tal needs of the elderly and dis­abled groups in the UAE through its Re­hab and Home Care Ser­vices.

“We take great pride in col­lab­o­rat­ing with the Min­istry of Com­mu­nity Devel­op­ment on this no­ble ini­tia­tive. Emi­rates Health­care Com­pany has al­ways been com­mit­ted to sup­port­ing na­tional devel­op­ment and our re­cent part­ner­ship with the Min­istry is a tes­ta­ment of this ded­i­ca­tion.”
