Universal Hospital and Dubai First make Outpatient and Inpatient care more accessible and affordable to patients

Universal Hospital affiliated to UBC World, has signed an exclusive partnership with Dubai First, one of the leading consumer finance companies in the UAE, to provide unique savings and benefits for its patients and customers.

Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Shabeer Nellikode, Founder and Managing Director of Universal Hospital officially announced that as part of the partnership, Dubai First Credit Cardholders will get up to 500 AED discount on outpatient consultations and procedures at the hospital. He further added that Universal Hospital supports the noble initiative of the UAE’s President His Highness Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan, who has declared 2017 as the Year of Giving, and the saving benefit is the first step in this direction.

For Dubai First this is yet another strategic partnership that reaffirms the company’s commitment to its Corporate Social Responsibility program and to align itself with the ‘Year of Giving’ initiative of the UAE. This collaboration provides the Cardholders access to world-class medical facilities and high quality healthcare services at great value. In addition to the generous discount, the Cardholders will also have the flexibility to pay for services, procedures and treatments at Universal Hospital and other branches across the UAE, in 3 to 12 easy installments at 0% interest. Dubai First actively seeks opportunities to keep its leading position in the consumer finance industry and this exclusive proposition is another way to delivering a superior value for its customers. New cardholders will be welcomed with a Complimentary cash voucher worth AED 100 redeemable at the Universal Hospital Pharmacies across the UAE, along with a Complimentary preventative annual health check-up worth AED 2,000.

Mr. Hamad Al Hosani, Hospital group COO, commented that with the easy payment plan, patients need not hesitate to consult a physician for any services or procedures; now, they can give priority to their health first, and pay later their healthcare bills that are not covered by insurance. Patients who want to take advantage of the above savings and benefits can apply for a Dubai First Credit Card directly with a Dubai First representative who will be stationed at the Universal Hospital.

Universal Hospital also used this occasion to present rare cases and complex surgeries done by “The Sports Medicine and Orthopaedic Surgery Department”, in particular a complex wrist surgery that had been rejected by leading hospitals in UAE, but accepted and successfully operated at the Universal Hospital. The launch of the Kidney Stone Clinic, was also announced, offering complimentary screening and evaluation. Kidney stones affect one in twenty people at some point in their life.

Universal hospital has now positioned itself as a centre for complex cases, critical cases, rare cases, recurrent cases, and a centre which specializes in reconstructive and revision surgeries.

Universal Hospital would like to take this opportunity to wish each one of you a healthy and happy Ramadan and to invite everyone to be part of the Healthy Ramadan Campaign.
