Since their inception in the UAE, Aster hospitals have earned the tag of trusted healthcare providers by offering exceptional care and delivering favourable medical outcomes to patients.
The services delivered at the cardiology department at the hospitals have played a pivotal role in helping Aster hospitals earn this recognition.
In the past four years, the interventional cardiology team at Aster Hospital in Mankhool has given a new lease of life to more than 5,000 people with heart diseases.
Celebrating this remarkable achievement and realising the requirement to cater to more people, Aster is now expanding interventional cardiology care to its state-of-the-art facility in Qusais.
"We are proud that our interventional cardiology programme at our hospitals is a success in saving lives and giving hope to people with heart diseases,” says Dr Sherbaz Bichu, CEO of Aster Hospitals and Clinics, UAE.
“Saving 5,000 lives is a remarkable achievement. It shows our commitment to society and reaffirms our mission to care for the world. At Aster hospitals, patients are front and centre. We strive to improve their lives by offering the best treatment solutions.
"We are now expanding our interventional cardiology programme to Aster Hospital, Qusais, to cater to the needs of the growing population in the UAE.
