DHA has opened the tendering process for its new facility to be built in the Rashid Medical Complex
 
Dubai, United Arab Emirates, November 25, 2018: Dubai Health Authority (DHA) has begun the tendering process for the establishment of a state-of-the-art cardiac centre.
 
The centre will follow the public-private partnership (PPP) model for building the centre.  DHA will hold a bidder day on November 29 from 10am-12pm at the Conrad Hotel on Sheikh Zayed Road. 
 
DHA has appointed a team of advisors, led by PricewaterhouseCoopers and supported by Mott MacDonald as the technical adviser and Allen&Overy as the legal and transaction adviser, to help select a suitably qualified private-sector partner.  
 
Cardiovascular disease is the number one cause of death across the world. According to some studies, heart attacks take place approximately ten years earlier in the Middle East than in many Western countries.
 
The cardiology department is the second-busiest unit in Rashid Hospital after the Emergency and Trauma Centre.
 
The Cardiac Centre of Excellence (CCoE) will be a 110-120-bed facility covering cardiac emergency and inpatient and outpatient services. 
The centre will be located in the Rashid Medical Complex with easy access to and from the Rashid Medical Complex Emergency and Trauma Centre. 
 
Shared responsibilities
 
The private-sector partner will be responsible for designing, building, financing, maintaining, operating and managing the CCoE for a period of 25 years. 
In addition to facilities management services, the scope will include the provision, operation and maintenance of all the required medical equipment and the management and provision of all clinical services. The CCoE will be transferred to DHA at the end of the contract term.     
 
“The Cardiac CoE will have a one–stop-shop approach with an integrated care continuum supported by evidence-based international best practices with focus on screening and early detection,” said Dr Younis Kazim, CEO of Dubai Healthcare Corporation, DHA. “The model of care will also be flexible and adaptable to support remote patient monitoring.”
 
Dr Fahad Baslaib, CEO, Rashid Hospital, added, “Given the high prevalence of cardiac cases, it is imperative that we have a completely dedicated centre that will provide all cardiac services from screening to intervention care under one roof. 
 
“Additionally, the Cardiac CoE will emphasise physician access to clinical affiliation, research and technology innovation. We will ensure the CoE also focusses on physician training, development and education in Dubai.”
 
“The Cardiology PPP project will enable allocation of risks between the public and private sector, as well as reduce the operating costs across the life cycle of these assets, given the more efficient management of operations and maintenance of the facility,” said Dr Ibtesam Al Bastaki, Director of Investments and
Public-Private Partnership Department, DHA. “This is also beneficial to patients, as it would give them access to high-quality clinical services. We will also ensure access for financially vulnerable segments based on best international practices.”

  • Ambulatory care
  • Urgent care clinics
