Abu Dhabi: NMC Healthcare announced on Wednesday that it had been selected by the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (Adnoc) to manage operations of Ruwais Hospital to offer improved medical services to patients in Al Dhafra Region.
The agreement was signed at Adnoc headquarters by Rashid Saud Al Shamsi, director of Business and Commercial Support, on behalf of Adnoc, and Prasanth Manghat, CEO and executive director of NMC Healthcare.
Through this agreement, NMC Healthcare will manage all operations at Ruwais Hospital. Continuing to provide all existing services, NMC Healthcare will also introduce a range of new specialities at the hospital.
