Fakeeh University Hospital has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Siemens Healthineers to further enhance the successful collaboration across various areas with a special focus on medical excellence, improvement of productivity and innovation in healthcare delivery.
This is brought to the UAE by pioneering Saudi healthcare provider group - Fakeeh Care. Fakeeh University Hospital (FUH) is committed to delivering medical excellence and championing outstanding research in the UAE, building on four decades of healthcare legacy. Equipped with cutting-edge technology and with the support of its partnership with Siemens Healthineers, its systems are set up to treat an estimated 700,000 patients a year.
In the most recent leap of the mutual collaboration, FUH will see the institutionalisation and facilitation of the Middle East's first Innovation Think Tank (ITT) laboratory developed in collaboration with Siemens Healthineers.
FUH-ITT lab will act as a physical and virtual center for research, clinical excellence, and training, where staff, students and researchers can apply their real-world expertise towards the development of medical innovations, from new practices to breakthrough technologies.
In addition to the laboratory space at its state-of-the-art facility, the flagship ITT Certification Program will be organized in a hybrid format, engaging key healthcare stakeholders in the region and focusing on defining new designated projects in the ITT-FUH lab.
Also, a dedicated digital engagement platform will be launched on Fakeeh University Hospital’s website which will showcase the most outstanding projects and potential engagement options with the global community on research and innovation. The laboratory space itself will strengthen the hospital’s education arm by providing opportunities for doctors and staff to undergo specialized training sessions to further enhance patient care capabilities.
