The core purpose of this private-public MoU is to provide the best-in-class healthcare services for the emirate, which comes in line with the cabinet’s vision to make the UAE one of the best countries in the world by the year 2021."

The MoU will see patients referred to Zulekha Healthcare Group’s facilities to receive fast-track medical attention and treatment as and when required. The hospital will inform the concerned patients about post-treatment follow-up and recommendations followed by a progress report and case summary during and after the treatment period.

"Having grown with the emirate of Sharjah, it gives us immense pleasure to be able to extend these exclusive services to the employees of SHA and other beneficiaries to have easier access to our world-class healthcare services.
