Mayo Clinic is a nonprofit organization that is committed to providing comprehensive care to everyone who needs healing. At Mayo Clinic, doctors from every medical specialty work together to advance medical knowledge through research and education and apply that knowledge to medical care.
Mayo Clinic is the first and largest integrated, not-for-profit group practice in the world. At Mayo, a team of specialists is assembled to take the time to listen, understand and care for patients’ health issues and concerns. These teams draw from more than 4,000 physicians and scientists and nearly 60,000 allied health staff.
Mayo Clinic has three major campuses in Rochester, Minn.; Scottsdale and Phoenix, Ariz.; and Jacksonville, Fla., as well as a wholly owned community health system.
Mayo Clinic recognizes that people prefer to get their health care close to home. A primary goal of the network is to help people gain the benefits of Mayo Clinic expertise without necessarily having to travel to a Mayo Clinic facility. Mayo achieves this goal by developing closer relationships with community medical providers through formal collaboration and tools and services that promote information sharing.
Mayo Clinic launched the Mayo Clinic Care Network in 2011. The network consists of like-minded organizations that share a common commitment to improving the delivery of health care in their communities through high-quality, data-driven, evidence-based medical care.
Members are invited to join the network after a comprehensive evaluation that includes clinical excellence, patient care and quality criteria.
Today the Mayo Clinic Care Network has 40 members. These independent high-quality organizations are based across the United States and in Mexico, Singapore and the UAE.
American Hospital Dubai and American Hospital Dubai Clinics (AHD)
The AHD mission is to provide high quality American standard healthcare that meets the needs and exceeds the expectations of the people of Dubai, the UAE and the surrounding Gulf States. We operate to these standards, every day, in everything we do.
All of the physicians who are credentialed at the hospital are North American Board Certified or of equivalent Western training programs so as to ensure that we have the expertise to fulfill our patients’ medical requirements in comfortable and reassuring surroundings.
The hospital was the first private institution in the Middle East to be accredited by the Joint Commission International (JCI), which ensures our continued commitment to the highest quality American standard of healthcare in the region. The hospital’s Medical Laboratory was also the first private laboratory in the Middle East to be accredited by the College of American Pathologists (CAP).
The hospital continues to expand its services in primary and secondary care, plus selective tertiary services.
