Cambridge Medical and Rehabilitation Center (CMRC) Admits First Patients to Its New Saudi Facility
RIYADH, Saudi Arabia, May 26, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Cambridge Medical and Rehabilitation Center (CMRC), a top post-acute rehabilitation and long-term care facility in the UAE, has admitted 15 patients to its newly opened medical facility in Saudi Arabia. CMRC's new 60-bed clinic, located between Dhahran and Alkhobar, aims to help patients requiring post-acute care and rehabilitation services to make large improvements in their quality of life through multidisciplinary rehabilitative therapies including psychiatry, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech and language therapy, and multi-sensory room sessions. The majority share of CMRC is owned by TVM Capital Health Care, a pioneering company in the field of the private equity investments in the specialized health care sector.
The facility is staffed by multiple clinical experts including GPs, internal medicine consultants, pediatricians, ICU intensivists, rehabilitation consultants, psychologists and therapists, and will service patients across the eastern region of Saudi Arabia.
The facility follows the same clinical procedures and protocols successfully implemented in facilities in the UAE, similarly benefiting from the center's international partnership with the Spaulding Rehabilitation Network, a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School, and accreditations from Joint Commission International, CARF and Planetree.
Commenting on this inauguration, CMRC Group CEO Dr. Howard S. Podolsky said: "We expand into countries where there is notable demand for post-acute care and rehabilitation services. Like many countries around the world, Saudi Arabia is experiencing a rise in the incidence of non-communicable diseases, birth defects, and life-threatening injuries. Our new facility brings our world-class medical treatment, care, and rehabilitation therapies to the Kingdom through a truly patient-centric approach. We look forward to helping families in the region improve their quality of life and using our international expertise and specialized workforce to support the government of Saudi Arabia's focus on health care development, as part of Saudi Vision 2030."
On his part, Dr. Helmut Schuehsler, CEO of TVM Capital Healthcare and board member of CMRC, said: "We believe that private equity investment should be a force for good, and that by working in health care, we have a real opportunity to make a difference to patients' lives. Therefore, we conceptualized and invested in CMRC in the UAE to cater to those in need of post-acute care and an elevated level of rehabilitation. CMRC grew to be the leading post-acute care and rehabilitation provider in the UAE. We are very happy to bring the offer to the people of Saudi Arabia now."
The new facility is located on Ash Shifa Street, Southern Dhahran Province, P. O. Box 34454. Appointments may be made by calling 920013122, sending an email message to email@example.com or through the Center's web site www.cmrc.com.
