Alfardan Group in partnership with Northwestern Medicine, has ventured into the medical sector in the country with the opening of Alfardan Medical with Northwestern Medicine (AMNM), a patient-centric, ambulatory care centre at Lusail City.
The details of the new centre were announced at a webinar on Sunday, attended by officials of Alfardan Group as well as Northwestern Medicine.
Omar Hussain Alfardan, president and CEO of Alfardan Group; Dr Jessica Adam, chief medical officer of AMNM; Dr Daniel Derman from Northwestern Medicine and other officials took part in the webinar.
AMNM is the result of an international collaboration between Alfardan Group and US-based Northwestern Medicine. At AMNM’s state-of-the-art treatment facilities, service excellence, combined with advanced patient-centric care, is provided by a multinational medical team with top US medical talent making up a large proportion of the centre’s staff.
Omar Alfardan said: "The co-operation between us and Northwestern Medicine is built on the shared values of service excellence and delivering world-class experiences. AMNM will deliver advanced integrated healthcare by leveraging Northwestern Medicine’s expertise in medical services and Alfardan Group’s renowned capacity for service excellence. These merits will position AMNM as one of the leading healthcare providers in the country.”
“Opening a new healthcare facility during a pandemic is not easy, but our strong commitment and dedication to serving the community and providing service excellence, even in times of uncertainty, has compelled us to ensure that AMNM is ready to welcome patients. I would like to sincerely thank the Ministry of Public Health for their support as we begin to operate,” he added.
The introduction of AMNM in Qatar marks Alfardan Group’s first venture in the healthcare sector. The partnership between Alfardan Group and Northwestern Medicine for AMNM leverages both organisations’ complementary strengths: Alfardan Group’s legacy and scale in offering hospitality and luxury experiences, and Northwestern Medicine’s longstanding history and leadership in the medical field.
The Chicago-based Northwestern Medicine is one of the US’s leading academic health systems, anchored by Northwestern Memorial Hospital, one of the top-ranked hospitals in the United States.
At AMNM, experienced, high-calibre physicians provide high-quality medical care in various medical specialties, including Ear, Nose and Throat, Dentistry, Dermatology, Gastroenterology, Internal Medicine, Ophthalmology, Orthopedics, Plastic Surgery, Reproductive/ Endocrinology/ Infertility, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Sleep Medicine and Executive Health.
At AMNM, patients will receive high-quality medical care from outstanding doctors and friendly medical staff using state-of-the-art, US Food and Drug Administration approved equipment. This equipment aids physicians’ fluidity of movement and their efficient service delivery, ensuring the patients’ comfort and an overall seamless journey across the facility.
Spanning over six floors in the iconic Burj Alfardan, AMNM’s facilities have been designed around the patient’s experience, adhering to international benchmarks and standards of medical infrastructure, architectural design, and services. AMNM offers patients and their families an environment of privacy and comfort, in a luxurious setting.
Dr Adam said: “Powered by academic heritage, tech-led innovation, and a continuous pursuit of service excellence, Northwestern Medicine boasts a proven track record in the delivery of a premier healthcare system and patient-centric care. At AMNM, the patients’ individuality is respected, empowering them to become active participants and make informed decisions about their healthcare plans. By bringing Northwestern Medicine’s patient-centric care model to Qatar, we have ensured that AMNM will be one of the leading forces in offering research-based, high-quality, and compassionate care in the country.”
“Supporting the delivery of world-class care with an exceptional experience in Lusail City is an important milestone for our Patients First mission. As the world continues to respond to the global Covid-19 pandemic, this facility provides Northwestern Medicine the opportunity to partner with the Alfardan Group to serve the people of Qatar,” noted, Dean M Harrison, president and chief executive officer, Northwestern Memorial HealthCare.
