Mayo Clinic Laboratories and Middle East healthcare provider American Hospital Dubai have reached a strategic partnership to advance patience care through enhanced laboratory diagnostics.
The partnership between the two organisations will see laboratory testing being delivered from early this year in the Dubai region.
As part of the deal, the laboratory testing will be carried out at a Mayo Clinic Laboratories facility or at American Hospital Dubai.
Mayo Clinic Laboratories president William Morice II said: “Our goal for this relationship is to offer advanced laboratory testing to better help clinicians answer complex medical questions for their patients.
“Effective laboratory diagnostics is critical to improving patient care, and, by bringing this service straight to the region, we are dramatically reducing test turnaround times.”
In addition, the two partners will seek to direct their efforts to provide health care providers in the region with better access to complex laboratory diagnostics.
According to the organisations, this access will equip the health care providers with required tools to improve patient care.
Mayo Clinic Laboratories chief medical officer Mohamed Salama said: “Laboratory medicine is an essential foundation for patient care, and without it, providers are not able to provide their patients with accurate and timely answers.
“Both our organisations are dedicated to building this foundation for the patients in the region.”
Mayo Clinic Laboratories supports nearly 4,000 health care organisations across the globe with advanced laboratory testing and pathology services.
