Dubai – MENA Herald: Medcare, a premium brand under Aster DM Healthcare, is embarking on an expansion programme that includes the opening of an IVF clinic, centre for women and children and paediatrics. By widening its reach and bringing medical expertise to the larger community, Medcare is strengthening its foothold in the healthcare industry with a bigger focus on women and children’s health.

Participating at the third International Medical Travel Conference and Exhibition (IMTEC), a one of a kind medical travel event, Dr. Azad Moopen, Chairman & Managing Director of Aster DM Healthcare inaugurated the Medcare Hospital booth and expressed his optimism in the future of medical travel in the UAE and India. He said: “We at Aster DM Healthcare are proud to be part of the burgeoning medical travel  industry. With our core verticals already in place both here in the UAE and India, we are happy to be of service to the public and provide health care in the best way we can. It is Aster DM Healthcare’s vision to treat everyone well – our hospitals and medical centres exhibit this goal. We are particularly excited to soon offer our facilities focusing on the health of women and children, including an IVF facility through our Medcare brand.”

Medcare is currently working to build an IVF facility in Jumeirah, Dubai which will cater to residents of the UAE and other countries who are seeking help to grow their families. Along with this, Medcare plans to open its specialised facility, Medcare Palace for women and children located at Sheikh Zayed Road where women will be treated for obstetric gynecology, plastic surgery, cosmetic, and bariatric among others. Medcare also operates a specialist child care facility – the Medcare Pediatrics Specialty Clinic in Umm Suqueim, Jumeirah.

“Our organisation is growing and from a single hospital in 2008, we now boast 10 medical clinics under our brand. With these and our upcoming new centres, our continued strength is a testament of our commitment to provide excellent healthcare services for all. Our facilities are right in the heart of the community and ready to serve not just the population within the area – but we also welcome patients from across the globe. Medcare’s support of the Dubai government’s initiative to boost medical tourism is part of our core mission. With our expansion programme, we are preparing ourselves for the arrival of more patients – both from local communities and further afield.” said Mr. Ala Atari, CEO of Medcare Hospitals & Medical Centres.

On its presence at IMTEC, Alisha Moopen, Director for Strategy at Aster DM Healthcare said: “As an institution, Aster DM Healthcare is committed and our dream is to provide global quality healthcare for all. Medical tourism breaks down barriers between countries and helps bring all medical expertise together, enabling people to choose the right skill set and the right facility for them. It also helps brings down the cost by creating a more competitive environment by which we can reach a much larger audience and serve a wider population.  As an organisation, we can cater to all segments of the population with our primary, secondary, tertiary to quaternary care facilities with our units in the GCC and India. In India, we offer advanced delivery of healthcare in all areas such as oncology, cardiology, transplants, robotic surgeries, neurology, gastro to name a few. In the UAE, we have centers of excellence in orthopedics such as our Medcare facility which caters to patients from across the globe. Our upcoming woman and child hospital will also serve the GCC population in this niche area with a very unique positioning and availability of comprehensive women and pediatric care which is one of the key focus areas for us.”
