SEHA and Musanada collaborate on huge dialysis project [Global Data Point]
(Global Data Point Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) The Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (SEHA), in collaboration with the Abu Dhabi General Services (Musanada), has announced that the construction of the Sheikh Khalifa Medical City (SKMC) Dialysis Centre will begin imminently.
Construction will commence following the approval of the Executive Committee of the Abu Dhabi Executive Council, and its adoption of a budget for design and implementation of the centre. The centre will include 66 kidney dialysis units when completed, and will also address renal failure patients, thus contributing to the upgrading of the level of health service provided to them.
The total cost of the construction of the SKMC Dialysis Centre is estimated to be Dhs103m. The building related to the project will take up a total surface area of 10,057 square meters, while 6,276 square meters will be devoted to infrastructure and parks. The centre will be located beside the existing SKMC health facilities in Abu Dhabi.
The Centre's provision will incorporate the latest high-quality medical technologies and devices, which will contribute to the provision of world-class medical care to patients, as well as covering the needs of the expected increase in population in the coming years. The new centre will also reduce maintenance costs and provide a number of requisite administrative support services, including meeting rooms and parking lots.
By building the SKMC Dialysis Centre, SEHA aims to meet the current needs of the city of Abu Dhabi, which currently requires 67 kidney dialysis units, with only 42 units currently being available. In this respect, the new centre is set to definitively meet the needs of the city. The centre will work three shifts a day instead of two, so as to meet the expected patient load.
The SKMC Dialysis Centre will bolster other dialysis centres operating in Abu Dhabi, including Al Mafraq Dialysis Centre that consists of 66 units, and Tawam Dialysis Centre, with 99 units.
The centre has been designed to meet future healthcare needs, such as expansions, in order to provide patients with high-quality healthcare services. This is in accordance with the vision of SEHA, which is to provide healthcare to clients and community in line with the best international standards. SEHA's primary goal is to develop the necessary infrastructure system in order for its health facilities to deliver and support world-class standards.
The new centre has been designed according to sustainability criteria that take into account the reduction of energy and water consumption, and which also make full usage of the sun's rays. Furthermore, the design was produced according to the latest international medical standards, which provide an ideal environment for healing and comforting the sick, and simultaneously take into account the privacy and traditions of the UAE.
SEHA's continuing plans include building, replacement and renovation of approximately 23 medical centres by the year 2018, and the provision of healthcare services to Abu Dhabi residents in accordance with the highest international standards.
