Alfardan Group has ventured into Qatar’s medical services sector with the launch of the Alfardan Medical with Northwestern Medicine. Alfardan Group unveiled the new project at a press conference held at Northwestern University, Qatar.
The Alfardan Medical with Northwestern Medicine will offer patients a wide variety of ambulatory care services later this year. This is the first of the Alfardan Group’s investments in the health sector, as part of its social responsibility towards the State of Qatar and its vision to develop projects that will contribute to the realization of the Qatar National Vision.
Chicago-based Northwestern Medicine is one of the United States’ premier academic health systems, anchored by Northwestern Memorial Hospital, one of the top ranked hospitals in the United States. The Northwestern Medicine health system is affiliated with Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine.
Omar Hussain Al Fardan, president and CEO of Alfardan Group, says in a release, “The Alfardan Group has built its reputation on offering our clients a lifestyle in keeping with the quality, luxury, and premium services that they value. A sustained focus on meeting those needs and aspirations has seen the company reach tremendous heights of success in business.
With the opening of Alfardan Medical with Northwestern Medicine, our ambition is to enhance Qatar’s medical system and reach global standards in healthcare. We are capable of delivering the most advanced integrated healthcare by leveraging our strengths in this venture, Northwestern Medicine, and their expertise in medical services, combined with the Alfardan Group’s renowned capacity for service excellence. I am confident that these merits will truly differentiate Alfardan Medical with Northwestern Medicine as a premier healthcare provider.”
Alfardan Group carried out an assessment of health care systems with the appropriate medical expertise and reputation prior to selecting Northwestern Medicine to provide the guidance, oversight, and advice for both the construction and operation of the new facility.
“Northwestern Medicine is committed to providing high-quality, compassionate care to patients that is informed by breakthrough research. We are pleased to have the opportunity to assist Alfardan in its new project to bring world-class care to Qatar,” says Dean M. Harrison, president and CEO, Northwestern Memorial HealthCare. “With this collaboration with the Alfardan Group, we have the unique opportunity to extend our Patients First mission to the Qatari people.”
