Siemens Healthineers partners with Middle Eastern investors to establish first healthcare establishment in UAE

Dubai, December 06 2016: Global medical technology business, Siemens Healthineers, has partnered with Middle Eastern investors to establish its first entity in the UAE.

Siemens Healthineers offers medical imaging, laboratory diagnostics and advanced medical services, consulting and healthcare IT services in the region.

“With the inevitable transformation of the healthcare industry and increasing challenges that healthcare providers face, it is imperative as technology providers to be well-equipped in responding to changes in trends and paradigm shifts. As Siemens Healthineers, we are committed to delivering high-quality, affordable patient care in this value-based environment. Having Easa Saleh Al Gurg Group and Elmec as part of this journey gives us the confidence in becoming inspiring partners to our customers and shaping the future of healthcare together”.

This is a partnership that takes lead from our long standing ties with Siemens. The alliance in the field of healthcare adds a new synergy to our contribution in this fast developing sector with the objective to deliver a continual flow of market-leading new technologies,” added Abdulla Al Gurg, Group General Manager, Easa Saleh Al Gurg Group LLC.

He said, “Both patients and the community are beneficiaries of this relationship. We are equipped to deliver high-quality and sustainable services for both wellness and illness care. Our partnership with Siemens Healthineers is a natural progression to build on our strengths and partner with another organization that shares our vision. It also provides a unique platform to share best practices and support collaboration in a way that benefits the health of the UAE population.”

Mr. Shaheen Rubaya Al Muhairi, Managing Director of Electro Mechanical Co.LLC, commented:

“Electro Mechanical Co.LLC (ELMEC) has been associated with Siemens for the past four decades and we look forward to continuing this partnership with Siemens Healthineers in the U.A.E for the coming decades.
