Oman health: Burjeel Hospital to open in Muscat

Muscat: With valet parking, bell boys to carry your luggage, fine dining restaurants and concierge services, the new Burjeel Hospital in Al Khuwair is going to offer “7-star services” to all its visitors.

Come March, the hospital will aim to provide world-class, specialised medical treatment and services to communities in Muscat and across the Sultanate. “One needs to visit Burjeel to actually believe and experience the top-notch health facilities it has to offer. And whether you are there for treatment or to visit a patient, you are bound to go back happily satisfied,” said Clancey Francisco Po, chief executive officer (CEO) of Burjeel Hospital.

Other facilities will include play zones for children, providing every visitor with hot and cold towels and music.

The 74-bed hospital will also include a total of 31 consultation rooms.

“The hospital’s pre and post-operative rooms, triage centre, emergency room, labour and delivery suites, ICU, NICU, Cath Lab, MRI, CT Scan, laboratory, and pharmacy will be equipped, based on the highest clinical standards and will be a one-stop shop for all patients,” CEO Po said, as he announced the opening of the hospital in March 2016 on Monday, along with Dr. Shamsheer Vayalil, founder and managing director of VPS Healthcare and Dr. Charles F. Stanford, senior director of VPS Healthcare.

The announcement was made in the presence of Omani dignitaries and government officials.

Burjeel Hospital is part of VPS Healthcare, an integrated healthcare provider with a network of hospitals, chain of medical centres and pharmaceutical manufacturing, and pharmacies across the MENA region.

“The hospital will have all core medical, paramedical, and support services supplied by well-trained, accredited and skilled professionals,” Po added.

Part of the internationally recognized Burjeel Hospital, which is headquartered in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, the healthcare facility will also include clinical teams from prominent hospitals and universities from North America, Europe, and other continents.

“We are committed to offering the best healthcare services to the growing community in what is one of the most promising countries in the region. We are confident that the new medical hub will be recognized as one of the leading hospitals in Oman. This is also an important milestone for the brand, as we continue our expansion across the region,” said Vayalil.

Burjeel Hospital will have premiere and deluxe in-patient rooms and the medical hub will house centres of excellence and clinics, such as obstetrics and gynaecology, paediatrics, orthopaedics, ophthalmology, cardiology, rheumatology, gastroenterology, urology, psychiatry and neurology, dermatology and cosmetology, ENT, sleep medicine, endocrinology, internal medicine, family medicine, dentistry, general surgery, and plastic surgery.
