UAE hospitals vie for top spot at the 2012 Arab Health Awards

Dubai, : The shortlist of nominations for the 2012 Arab Health Innovation & Achievement Awards has been announced with more than 50 healthcare facilities from the United Arab Emirates vying for the top spot in this year’s awards. With hospitals such as Corniche Hospital, Rashid Hospital and Abu Dhabi Health Services Company () making it to the final shortlist, the is set to be a good year for the UAE healthcare industry.

Top performers from twelve categories rewarding outstanding institutions and individual achievements that have contributed to the growth and development of the Middle East healthcare industry will be announced on 24th January 2012, during the 37th Arab Health Exhibition & Congress which is organised by Informa Exhibitions and will take place at the Dubai International Convention & Exhibition Centre.

“This year the number of submissions for the Arab Health Awards has grown exponentially, from the wider GCC and Middle East, particularly from the UAE and Saudi Arabia,” says Mr El Husseini, business development director, GE Healthcare Middle East and member of the Arab Health Awards judging panel. “What is interesting to see is more participation from the wider healthcare communities in the region such as outpatient care as well as from the private sector. This is very encouraging and shows how important the Arab Health Awards are in terms of offering recognition within the regional healthcare community. In countries such as the UAE, where the government is investing heavily in their healthcare infrastructure, the Arab Health Awards offer a fantastic platform to highlight recent health achievements in the UAE.”

The panel examined more than 150 nominations submitted by healthcare facilities and professionals from around the Middle East region to build the shortlist for ten award categories:
