Expanding Knowledge Transfer Program in Maternal Health

Al Corniche Hospital welcomed some of the world’s leading experts on maternal and perinatal medicine for a one-day conference here in Abu Dhabi last month as part of its continuing emphasis on knowledge transfer through its affiliation with Johns Hopkins Medicine.  The most recent offering was a conference entitled Best Practices in Maternal and Perinatal Health held at the Millennium Hotel and attended by approximately 200 doctors and medical practitioners across the UAE.

The conference’s objective was to highlight current practices and innovations in maternal and neonatal health. Participants took part in discussions on a variety of issues including multiple gestation, global maternal mortality, first trimester screening, obstetric emergencies, post partum pain management, and ultra-sound facilitated spinals and epidurals.

Al Corniche Hospital is owned and operated by Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (SEHA) which is responsible for the curative activities of all the public hospitals and clinics of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.  The Hospital is managed by Johns Hopkins Medicine International, part of Johns Hopkins Medicine, one of the most esteemed brands in the United States.

“We are so thrilled to have had these exceptional doctors from Johns Hopkins, Mount Sinai and Hammersmith come and speak to the providers of care here in the U.A.E.”, says Dr. Judy Lee, Chief Medical Officer at Al Corniche Hospital.  “The topics these doctors covered are important to maintaining the best standards of care for the community.”

“Being able to share knowledge from some of the top doctors in the world is a huge benefit not only for the participants from across U.A.E. but also for their patients”, according to Ronald Lavater, CEO of Al Corniche Hospital.  “We look forward to being able to conduct many more of these conferences in the future.”

Under the management agreement signed between SEHA and Johns Hopkins Medicine International in September 2008, a Johns Hopkins management team has day-to-day oversight of Al Corniche Hospital.  Knowledge transfer is one of the significant benefits of the SEHA/Johns Hopkins partnership.

Al Corniche Hospital has been supporting the women of the region through pregnancy and childbirth for over 25 years. Al Corniche Hospital is a purpose-built obstetrics and gynecology facility with 235 beds, 14 delivery suites and 50 neonatal intensive care cots. With more than 10,000 births a year, Al Corniche Hospital is the busiest maternity hospital in Abu Dhabi. There are also more than 300 outpatient visits per day. Al Corniche has been named a “Baby Friendly” hospital which is considered the “gold standard” for Maternity Hospitals from the World Health Organization and UNICEF.
