Ambulatory Healthcare Services (AHS), a HealthSystem Facility of the Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (SEHA), has expanded its medical speciality services in Khalifa City – A in Abu Dhabi, UAE, to cope with the needs of an increasing number of patients in the region.
At present, around 550 to 700 patients visit the AHS centre in Khalifa City – A per day.
The services have been expanded across four departments – ophthalmology, gynecology, mother and child health, and dermatology.
AHS’ ophthalmology department provides laser services to avoid complications such as infection in the treatment of the eye, while the dermatology department now features a new specialist.
The mother and child health department has extended its operating hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
A new 4D ultrasound machine has also been introduced at the centre, which is expected to draw referral patients from other AHS centres that seek high resolution, four dimensional, ultrasound images for accurate diagnosis and prompt commencement of treatment.
AHS centre manager Dr Haifa Al Nahdi said that AHS is committed to the continuous development of its healthcare clinics and services.
"In line with this priority, we are proud to expand the quality healthcare services provided at the AHS centre in Khalifa City – A," Dr Al Nahdi added.
"The number of specialists and their consultation hours has been stepped-up at many departments to help the centre provide each patient with the best medical attention. We are confident our efforts will help to serve our communities better."
The AHS centre’s complete range of specialist services now comprise ante-natal care, mammography, clinical breast examination, chronic disease treatment, dental speciality treatment, dermatology, nutrition, general and minor surgery, general medicine, general dentistry, and obstetrics / gynecology.
Services also include ophthalmology, mother and child care, orthodontics, pediatric medicine, pediatric dentistry, patient and family health education, medical screening, radiology, pharmacy, public health education and periodontics.
