Riyadh, 20. May 2019: Cambridge Medical and Rehabilitation Center (CMRC), the UAE’s leading post-acute rehabilitation and long-term care facility, a portfolio company of healthcare specialist investor TVM Capital Healthcare, has admitted 15 patients to its first medical facility in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
CMRC’s new 60-bed facility, located between Dhahran and Al Khobar, helps patients requiring post-acute care and rehabilitation services to make large improvements in their quality of life through multidisciplinary rehabilitative therapies including physiatry, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech and language therapy, and multi-sensory room sessions.
The facility is staffed by multiple clinical experts including GPs, internal medicine consultants, pediatricians, ICU intensivists, rehabilitation consultants, psychologist and therapists, and will service patients across the eastern region of Saudi Arabia.
It follows the same clinical procedures and protocols successfully implemented in facilities in the UAE, similarly benefiting from the center’s international partnership with the Spaulding Rehabilitation Network, a Harvard Medical School Teaching Affiliate, and world-class accreditations from Joint Commission International, CARF and Planetree.
CMRC’s Group Chief Executive Officer, Dr. Howard S. Podolsky, commented: “We expand into countries where there is notable demand for post-acute care and rehabilitation services. Like many countries around the world, Saudi Arabia is experiencing a rise in the incidence of non-communicable diseases, birth defects, and life-threatening injuries. Our new facility brings our world-class medical treatment, care, and rehabilitation therapies to the Kingdom through a truly patient-centric approach. We look forward to helping families in the region improve their quality of life and using our international expertise and specialized workforce to support the Government of Saudi Arabia’s focus on healthcare development, as part of Saudi Vision 2030.”
Dr. Helmut Schuehsler, CEO of TVM Capital Healthcare and Board Member of CMRC, commented: “We believe that private equity investment should be a force for good, and that by working in healthcare, we have a real opportunity to make a difference to patients’ lives. Therefore, we conceptualized and invested in CMRC in the UAE to cater to those in need of post-acute care and an elevated level of rehabilitation. CMRC grew to be the leading post-acute care and rehabilitation provider in the UAE. We are very happy to bring the offer to the people of Saudi Arabia now.”
The new facility is in Al Dhahran Al Janubiyah, Alshifa
Street, P.O. Box 34454.
