Under the theme ‘One World Our Health’, this year’s WISH event, which was held on a virtual platform, featured world-renowned speakers who discussed, presented and explored global health challenges.
During the event, AMNM showcased its high-calibre physicians and recently launched medical specialties. The ambulatory care centre is currently welcoming patients looking to access world-class evidence-based medical services in internal medicine, gastroenterology, ENT, orthopaedics and rehabilitation, and diagnostic imaging and lab.
Highly credentialed allied health professionals specialised in exercise physiology, physiotherapy and clinical nutrition are also available. This further reinforces AMNM’s patient-centric approach to healthcare that is buttressed by collaborative multidisciplinary teamwork, the statement pointed out.
Other AMNM medical specialties that will be introduced in the near future include dermatology, ophthalmology, dental, plastic surgery, reproductive endocrinology/IVF, gynaecology and executive health.
Dr Jessica Adam, chief medical officer at AMNM, said: “With the launch of our new departments and the onboarding of world-renowned specialists at AMNM, we are looking forward to offering our patients exceptional medical services in Qatar. We welcome the community to explore AMNM’s state-of-the-art treatment facility to experience advanced patient-centric care, provided by a multinational medical team.”
AMNM’s participation at WISH 2020 highlighted how the ambulatory care centre integrates a patient-centric American healthcare model with Qatar’s luxury and hospitality to deliver world-class and advanced medical care, the statement explained.
Presenting a new healthcare concept in Qatar and the region, AMNM operates an American model in advanced medicine practices, backed by a patient-centric approach, transparency, world-class service and teamwork that excels in the services provided.
Dr Adam added, “AMNM is the result of a significant international collaboration between Alfardan Group and US-based Northwestern Medicine. The partnership leverages both organisations’ complementary strengths: Alfardan Group’s legacy and scale in offering hospitality and luxury experiences, and the longstanding history of leadership and innovation of Northwestern Medicine in the medical field. AMNM is more than just a continuation of the impressive growth momentum Qatar has seen in the past decades; it is a new experience for healthcare in the region.”
She continued, “We are delighted to have been part of WISH 2020 this year, to showcase our capabilities to the world and contribute to the conversation taking place on global health challenges.”
Benefiting from the interdisciplinary collaboration between the different departments at AMNM, patients will receive advanced medical care from outstanding doctors and friendly medical staff that will be using state-of-the-art, US Food and Drug Administration-approved medical equipment.
