Dubai: Right Health, the largest and fastest-growing value healthcare provider in the region, marked its first anniversary this January. Since its inception in 2018, the company’s clinics have treated over 700,000 patients from the value care and value care plus segments across the UAE, the first for any primary care provider in the Middle East. Established through the acquisition of 31 facilities, the value healthcare chain has expanded to 57 facilities today to include clinics, pharmacies, diagnostic centers and a drug store.
Speaking on the company’s first anniversary, Shainoor Khoja, Chief Impact Officer of Right Health, said: “We are proud to become the first primary healthcare provider to serve over 700,000 patients in one year. When we commenced operations, we were keen to positively impact the lives of people seeking affordable yet quality healthcare. At Right Health, we firmly believe that people from all walks of life need quality healthcare to make a positive contribution to their country, and that good health and well-being lead to a happier society.”
There are 700,000 people in the low-income category in the Northern Emirates of which only 20% are insured, hence providing primary care across the Northern Emirates is a growing need, according to a study conducted by KPMG in conjunction with Foundation Holdings.
Khoja added: “Access to primary healthcare for all, is very important and critical, and should be a birth right of every human being. The UAE has made several efforts in ensuring access to healthcare for all residents. We strongly support this vision, and in line with our commitment to touching as many lives as possible, we seek to expand our network to 89 facilities and provide healthcare services to 1.6 million patients by 2022.”
Created and spearheaded by UAE-based Foundation Holdings, a strategic investment firm focused on the healthcare and education sectors, Right Health supports the objective of the National Agenda of the UAE Vision 2021, to make quality healthcare accessible to all. With its winning formula of operating targeted, smaller health centers and clinics in strategic locations, the company has become the premier provider of affordable healthcare to blue-collar workers in the GCC region.
Right Health recently opened a clinic at a labor camp in Al Sajaa in Sharjah as the first of several in its plans to expand into the Northern Emirates. The value healthcare chain has been rapidly extending its reach into underserved neighborhoods of the country, bringing quality healthcare to the doorstep of low-income expats, and is set to increase its geographical footprint in 2019.
