Philips/Burjeel Hospital sign long-term partnership
Philips has entered a major new partnership with the Burjeel Hospital, a 196-bed facility in Abu Dhabi, UAE, to supply, install, maintain and upgrade of key medical equipment within the hospital. The contract guarantees long-term value for the Burjeel Hospital by future-proofing the installed technology against predictable operational costs, thereby providing the hospital with an affordable and stable business proposition.
To map out the hospital's initial and future requirements and define the required set of deliverables, a 30-strong multidisciplinary team from Philips collaborated closely with the local healthcare provider during the early stages of the hospital's planning and development. The range of medical equipment that Philips has installed at the hospital includes MRI and CT scanners, digital mammography units, a fully-equipped hybrid catheterisation lab, ultrasound machines and patient monitoring systems. In addition to using Philips scanners, the MRI and CT examination rooms feature Philips' Ambient Experience system, which uses lighting, architecture and interior design to create a hospital environment that helps to increase patient comfort and reduce patient anxiety.
