The Emirates Health Services (EHS) revealed that Al Qassimi Women’s & Children’s Hospital, since the Covid-19 outbreak, has successfully performed more than 415 pediatric surgeries, most of them for newborns with congenital anomalies, with a success rate of up to 100%, using the latest medical equipment and under the supervision of a distinguished medical staff.

This achievement comes as part of the EHS’s plans and efforts to provide integrated health care according to the best standards of excellence and professionalism. This also stems from the EHS’s keenness to provide its hospitals and health facilities with the latest diagnostic devices and high-tech equipment according to the highest international quality standards.

The medical cadres are also constantly trained to enhance their capacities to perform rare surgeries that require high expertise, know-how and efficiency.

Such procedures contribute to enhancing local and international confidence in the efficiency of health services and consolidating the status and gains of the health sector in the country.

This achievement cements the institution’s efficiency in applying the standards of the continuation of services and business and achieving the goals of national resilience in adapting to challenges and turning them into success, said Youssef Mohammed Al Serkal, Director-General, EHS.

Al Serkal highlighted the EHS’s commitment to providing hospitals with state-of-the-art technologies, leading to the development of health and treatment services, especially pediatric surgeries. This has also contributed to the hospital’s success in performing critical surgeries efficiently and professionally, resulting in the recovery of children and pleasing their families.

In December last year, in an outstanding medical achievement, the Ministry of Health and Prevention (MoHAP) announced that the first patient in the Middle East has been successfully treated with the DynamX Coronary Bioadaptor System.

The successful operation was made by a surgical team from Al-Qassimi Hospital of MoHAP. After the surgery, the patient was in stable condition, without any complications or inflammations. This delicate surgery is added to MoHAP’s proven track record of such surgeries and helps enhance its competitiveness, thanks to the abundant specialized medical competencies and sophisticated devices.
