Residents of Ajman can now avail advanced and complex medical treatment at a nearby Sharjah hospital as Ajman Specialty Hospital has signed a pact with Burjeel Specialty Hospital. The latter will now be taking referral patients from the emirate of Ajman and provide comprehensive and advanced tertiary care services.
Ajman Specialty Hospital is the first such facility in the region under the Ajman government and a majority of the local population are dependent on the facility for their medical needs. A daycare center, the medical unit does not have the facilities to accommodate patients, conduct complex surgeries and provide advanced treatment.
The partnership between the hospitals will let the authorities refer patients requiring complex and advanced treatment to Burjeel Specialty Hospital in Sharjah. The agreement focuses on three major areas: surgical procedures, advanced treatment, and medical admissions.
As per the agreement, the specialist doctors at Ajman Specialty Hospital will perform surgeries of their patients utilizing the facility at Burjeel Specialty Hospital. Similarly, patients who require advanced specialist treatments that are unavailable in Ajman can avail it at the Sharjah hospital. Those requiring treatment that requires hospital stay will also benefit from the pact.
