Alfardan Medical with Northwestern Medicine (AMNM), Qatar’s latest premium ambulatory care centre, has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with QLM Life and Medical Insurance Company (QLM), a subsidiary of Qatar Insurance Company (QIC) Group.
Through this agreement, QLM cardholders can now benefit from the AMNM’s innovative, tech-powered, and patient-centric healthcare model.
Reimagining the future of healthcare in Qatar and beyond, the AMNM provides high-quality, multi-disciplinary medical care, and patient service.
The AMNM operates under an American model of care, with a focus on advanced medicine practices, backed by a patient-centric approach, transparency, world-class service, and teamwork that excels in the services provided.
The AMNM’s healthcare services are powered by a multinational collective of specialised medical staff and professionals from leading markets, including a large contingent from the US.
Experienced physicians are providing high-quality medical care in various medical specialties, including ENT (ear, nose and throat), Dentistry, Dermatology, Gastroenterology, Internal Medicine, Ophthalmology, Orthopaedics, Plastic Surgery, Reproductive Endocrinology/Infertility, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Sleep Medicine, and Executive Health.
Omar Hussain Alfardan, president and chief executive of Alfardan Group, said: “Alfardan Group boasts over 65 years of legacy in delivering world-class premium experiences, with the guiding principles of quality, luxury and service excellence.”
“Our partnership with QLM will provide their local clients access to the high-quality, advanced, and innovate healthcare services that are available at AMNM,” he said. “Having only just opened in September 2020, ensuring an agreement with one of Qatar’s leading healthcare insurance providers was a natural and important next step for us.”
He added: “We’ve had a long-standing and successful partnership with QLM, they have cared for all of our Alfardan Group employees under their excellent insurance.
“We now look forward to caring for QLM clients and providing them with exceptional healthcare.”
The recent introduction of the AMNM in Qatar marks Alfardan Group’s first venture in the healthcare sector.
Located in the heart of Lusail City, the AMNM is the result of a significant international collaboration between Alfardan Group and US-based Northwestern Medicine.
The AMNM’s facilities have been designed around the patient’s experience, adhering to international benchmarks and standards of medical infrastructure, architectural design, and services.
The ambulatory care centre offers patients and their families an environment of privacy and comfort in a luxurious setting.
Qatar Insurance Group (QIC) chief executive Salem bin Khalaf al-Mannai stated: “Through 55+ years of QIC’s operation, we have been providing exceptional services and the same virtue is reflected through QLM’s motto of delivering quality healthcare.”
“At QLM we focus consistently towards providing world-class healthcare services through our expanding global network of providers,” he said. “In fact, this in conjunction with our years of expertise have enabled us to carve out a niche that distinguishes us from other players in the marketplace.”
He added: “Through this new partnership, we are strengthening further our long-standing relationship with the Alfardan Group, uniting the legacy and the leadership of the two institutions based in Qatar and in the region.”
