CLEVELAND CLINIC ABU DHABI RESUMES ALL SERVICES
Hospital Offers Timely Access to Care with In-person and Virtual Outpatient Appointments; Full Range of Safety Measures
Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, June 14, 2020:Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi, part of Mubadala’s network of healthcare providers, has resumed all services that were postponed as a precaution of COVID-19, working to provide the safest possible environment with the best patient experience.
The hospital is also offering evening timings and “Virtual Visits” for outpatient appointments, so that patients who have postponed treatment can see their doctor quickly and conveniently. Virtual Visits enable patients who do not require a physical examination to see their doctor via videoconference.
Patients can book in-person or virtual appointments with their doctors in the evenings until 8:00PM for the most in-demand clinics, including Gastroenterology, Ophthalmology, Cardiology, Endocrinology, Primary Care, Neurology, Physical Therapy and Pulmonary Medicine. The Emergency Department continues to be available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
“We want to offer patients the flexibility and convenience of seeing their doctor at a time that suits their schedule. Our aim is to provide the healthcare that people need, when they need it. This year, we are encouraging people to take advantage of virtual services,” said Dr. Madhu Sasidhar, Chief Medical Officer, Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi.
Virtual Visits can be booked on the ‘Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi Health Portal’ app, which is available on the App Store and Google Play Store.
As part of a full package of safety processes, temperature checks with infrared cameras are in place at all entrances and physical distancing measures are being enforced across the hospital. Patients, visitors and caregivers are also required to wear masks in all public areas. All public areas are sanitized with the optimum frequency.
By employing this wide range of precautions, caregivers at Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi are confident that they are providing a controlled environment that exceeds national and international safety standards.
