Advanced mobile X-ray machine drives visitors to learn how the Mubadala Health partner takes its visa screening and occupational health services on the road

At this month’s Custom Show Emirates held in the Dubai World Trade Center, 25,000 car and bike enthusiasts were treated to an unusual and imposing site – a mobile transportation unit with the capacity to perform occupational health and visa medical screenings for up to 25 people in an hour. The unit belongs to Capital Health Screening Centre (CHSC), a Mubadala Health partner, and includes an advanced mobile X-ray machine.

CHSC, which was a Silver Sponsor of Custom Show Emirates, operates its mobile units at within the premises of requesting company, enabling organizations to screen their employees in groups, with physical distancing measures enforced. Up to 200 individuals can be screened in eight hours. The mobile units complement the medical visa and occupational health screenings delivered to the public at its three branches in Abu Dhabi and Al Ain, with a fourth branch soon to open in Ruwais.

Ali AlSaffar, Deputy Chief Executive Officer of CHSC, said: “Our mobile unit at Custom Show Emirates was an attraction to visitors, as we are among very few providers in the UAE to offer this service. We have conducted more than three million visa medical screenings since 2011, and around 500,000 of these have been completed in our state-of-the art mobile units. This delivers an exceptional benefit to companies who use them for residency visa screening and occupational health checks, or for vaccinations for employees, as they save on transportation costs and time while also enjoying reduced workflow interruptions.”  

While Dubai corporates are currently served by the mobile units based near the Dubai-Abu Dhabi border, AlSaffar mentioned that CSHC intends to expand further in the near future. He added: “Given the increasing demand for convenient and quick screening options for companies, we have significant growth opportunities in Dubai and the wider UAE.”

CHSC’s visa medical screenings are completed in 30 minutes, with results available in 48 hours as standard; 24 hours with the express service; and on the same day with the premium service if the appointment takes place before noon. CHSC facilities are popular among employers and residents for visa screening due to their unique approach, which includes an appointment-booking system to minimize waiting times, SMS appointment reminders and optional same-day results for residency visa screening.

CHSC also has a drive-through PCR screening facility at its Al Jazira Sports Club branch, and administers COVID-19 vaccines, while visa medical screening and occupational health checks remain at the  centre of its expertise.
