Capital Health, a newly formed private integrated healthcare group, opened its first multi-specialty healthcare facility, Health Shield Medical Center, in Abu Dhabi today. Located in the Ministries Complex area of the capital, the medical center will provide local residents and medical tourists access to world-class technologies, treatments and expertise from leading medical professionals.

The two-floor facility, boasting 125 staff and 18 internationally-certified doctors,

offers healthcare services for the whole family, across 12 specialties including dentistry, cardiology, rheumatology, pulmonology, pediatrics, dermatology, ENT and physical and rehabilitation medicine, amongst others.

Delivering the finest levels of specialist consultations, diagnostic tests, treatment, one-day surgery and recovery support, Health Shield Medical Center, at full capacity, will provide up to 350 people per day with healthcare services including one-day surgeries in its two ultra-modern operating theaters.

With more US-board certified doctors than any other facility in Abu Dhabi, distinguished clinical talent joining the facility include the double American board certified and Harvard honors graduate, Dr. Michael Kelley, Internal Medicine Consultant and Pediatrics Consultant, and Dr. Irena Khostanteen, who is one of only two specialized Rheumatology Consultants in Abu Dhabi.

Dr. Mishal Al Kasimi, CEO of Capital Health and Health Shield, commented, “At Health Shield, we are committed to providing each of our patients with the highest quality of medical care through state-of-the-art technologies and we are proud to bring in world-class specialist consultants who are renowned in their respective fields.”

Centrally located in the Ministries Complex area, Health Shield is set to serve both the local Emirati community as well as employees in the neighboring businesses, such as TwoFour54 and many more.

Dr. Al Kasimi, concluded, “Presently, there is a large gap in the Abu Dhabi healthcare market as many medical centers are either not offering the same specialties or are simply not qualified to do so. This new facility will provide a full range of adult and pediatric outpatient therapies to the emirate’s population and with that we are strategically filling this need in the market to better provide excellence in healthcare as mandated by the UAE and Abu Dhabi’s visions.”

Health Shield Medical Center is just one of the facilities that Capital Health has developed in line with UAE Vision 2021and Plan Abu Dhabi 2030. With a strategy to pioneer new healthcare models, patients will be provided with the best quality care possible from Capital Health.

Health Shield is a part of Abu Dhabi Capital Group and accepts all major insurers including AXA, Alico, Daman, Daman-Thiqa, NextCare, NAS and many more.
