MAYO CLINIC CARE NETWORK

The best of International Clinical Collaboration

Mayo Clinic is a non-profit organization that is committed to providing comprehensive care to everyone who needs healing. It extends its knowledge, expertise and resource to carefully screened and selected, high-quality international healthcare organizations – such as American Hospital – that share its commitment to patient-centered care.

Through the Mayo Clinic Care Network, doctors from every medical specialty work together to advance medical knowledge through research and education and apply that knowledge to medical care. It is the first and largest integrated group practice in the world, drawing from teams of more than 4,000 physicians and scientists and nearly 60,000 allied health staff to listen, understand and care for patients’ health issues and concerns.

A PROUDLY PIONEERING PARTNERSHIP

In 2016, American Hospital became the first healthcare organization in the Middle East to join the Mayo Clinic Care Network.

Mayo Clinic has three major campuses in the United States, in Minnesota, Florida, and Arizona, as well as a wholly-owned community health system. However, it recognizes that people prefer to get their healthcare close to home and, in 2011, launched the Mayo Clinic Care Network to help people gain the benefits of Mayo Clinic expertise without having to travel to a Mayo Clinic facility. The network consists of like-minded organizations that share a common commitment to improving the delivery of healthcare 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. 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.

The American Hospital's 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 American Hospital physicians are North American Board Certified or of equivalent Western training, ensuring the expertise to fulfill our patients’ medical requirements in comfortable and reassuring surroundings.
