It has recently been announced that Emirates Healthcare Group has strategically partnered with Egypt’s leading healthcare provider Alameda Healthcare Group. One of the largest healthcare companies in Egypt, Alameda encompasses Dar El Fouad Hospital and As Salam International Hospital, in addition to 11 facilities under its umbrella.
Providing personalised, real-time healthcare solutions, Emirates Healthcare Group is under investment group KBBO.
Khalifa Bin Butti, Chairman of KBBO Group, has stated that the partnership is advantageous for the development of healthcare in Egypt and the region. “Our expansion in Egypt comes from our strong belief in the development and prosperity of the Egyptian market, and the progress that Egypt is making in all areas as a nation,” he said.
“We’re excited to establish an extensive presence in the vibrant Egyptian market. It’s an important addition to our global healthcare network, further extending the reach of the highest standard patient care we provide globally to around eight million patient each year.”
“The population of Egypt has reached 91mn, yet the number of hospital beds available is less than two beds per 1,000 people. With an annual population growth of 2.2%, Egypt desperately needs more hospital beds and improved quality of healthcare services, which this partnership will help provide.”
“There has been an increased quality of healthcare in Egypt in recent years, largely because of increased healthcare medical insurance and on-going investment in the sector from international companies like KBBO,” commented Dr Fahad Khater, who will be responsible for heading the group as Chairman from Alameda Healthcare.
“Today’s partnership is not just with Alameda Healthcare Group but in Egyptian healthcare; it will enhance the quality of – and access to – healthcare for all Egyptians."
