The first MoU was signed by Dr Younis Kazim, CEO of the Dubai Healthcare Cooperation at the DHA and Mr Fernando Parker, Director of Operations at NMC Provita International Medical Centre.
The second MoU was signed by Dr Kazim and Dr Howard S. Podolsky, Group CEO of Cambridge Medical Rehabilitation Centre.

Commenting on the MoU, Dr Kazim said that the DHA looks forward to collaborating with both centres with the aim of providing quality treatment and rehabilitation care for long-term patients.

Dr Kazim emphasized that both centres were chosen after meeting international criteria and after careful evaluation to ensure that patients are receiving the best level of care possible.
Dr Kazim added that the DHA constantly strives to strengthen its relations with international health facilities to promote investment and exchange experiences in line with the authority’s strategy.
