Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates: AETOSWire: NMC Healthcare, the new operator of Ruwais Hospital, held an open house at the hospital on Tuesday, 20th March 2018. The event brought together members from all sections of the Ruwais community and raised awareness for healthy lifestyles. Identifying preventative care and wellness as a key objective in Ruwais, NMC emphasized the importance of regular health checkups and provided free diabetes, obesity and cholesterol screenings to those in attendance. The open house also included free dietician consultations and facial massage therapies for women and men. Children also enjoyed the event through fun, interactive games and informative health talks.

As part of NMC’s initiative to engage with the Ruwais community, the event showcased the healthcare provider’s wide range of best-in-class medical services and its exceptional service-oriented healthcare team that keeps the patient at the center of the care delivery process.  NMC stated its intent is to improve the patient flow and experience at the hospital by implementing a new Health Information System to reduce wait times.
