Dubai – MENA Herald: JCI reaccredited, Canadian Specialist Hospital (CSH) launched the first ever private in-patient rehabilitation centre in partnership with Wagner Health & Care, one of the world’s leading providers of rehabilitation services from Austria. This AED 35 million centre will provide a total of 48 beds in super luxurious rooms for its medium and long term in-patient services in addition to its outpatient and day services.
“We realized that there was a huge gap in the country and the region with regard to world class rehabilitation centres. Due to this reason many patients from UAE were travelling to Europe and Asian countries for such treatments. We therefore wanted to bring the best to the UAE and thereby tied-up with Austria’s Wagner Health & Care and cater to the immediate needs of the patients in UAE,” said Dr. Yashar Ali, Acting CEO & Chief Medical Officer of CSH.
“Through a disease, activities in daily life can be limited. Quality of life is reduced significantly and can be a handicap in the daily work routine. This has an effect on the psychology of the patient, which can result in a negative state of mind. This negative constitution further impairs the medical condition and is often accompanied by a state of passiveness. Rehabilitation aims to restore health after a surgery, a grave disease or for people who are afflicted with chronic pain,” added Dr. Ali.
With an experience of over 25 years, Wagner Health & Care has become one of the most important providers for rehabilitation treatments and scientific research. The group earns trust from governments and consultants all around the world and receives worldwide referrals to Wagner Health & Care in Austria.
“This rehabilitation centre in UAE will deliver rehabilitation services including orthopedics, metabolic diseases, cardiology, neurology and oncology. Therefore, patients in UAE and region can avail the services right here rather than going abroad, thus saving resources, efforts and available health services at affordable prices,” said Dr. Dr. Stephan Wagner, CEO and owner of Wagner Health & Care.
“A multi-disciplinary team of physiotherapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, nutritionist and medical psychologists will offer various therapies, such as back school, vocational counseling, electrotherapy, thermal therapy, nutrition counseling and different types of massages on a European standard. Each therapist is a specialist in his or her field in order to guarantee the best therapies for the patients and we can promise that you are going to be treated by qualified hands,” added Dr. Dr. Wagner.

This cooperation combines the know-how of the reputed Wagner Health & Care and the high standards of medicine, care and international standards at CSH. Patients will find a state-of-the-art department in terms of equipment and facilities that are managed by Austrian experts and professionals.
According to World Health Organisation, rehabilitation is a process aimed at enabling patients to reach and maintain their optimal physical, sensory, intellectual, psychological and social functional levels. Rehabilitation provides disabled people with the tools they need to attain independence and self-determination.
