Emirates Healthcare Group on Tuesday announced a new partnership with Egypt's Alameda Healthcare Group.

Alameda Healthcare Group has the largest healthcare footprint in Egypt with 860 beds, including Dar El Fouad Hospital and As Salam International Hospital.

Emirates Healthcare Group is part of Abu Dhabi-based investment group KBBO. Khalifa Bin Butti, chairman of KBBO Group, hailed the partnership as a significant development for healthcare in Egypt and the region

“Our expansion in Egypt comes from our strong belief in the development and prosperity of the Egyptian market, and the progress that Egypt is making in all areas as a nation,” he said.

“We’re excited to establish an extensive presence in the vibrant Egyptian market. It’s an important addition to our global healthcare network, further extending the reach of the highest standard patient care we provide globally to around eight million patient each year.”

Butti also highlighted the serious need for additional healthcare facilities in Egypt, saying: “The population of Egypt has reached 91 million, yet the number of hospital beds available is less than two beds per 1,000 people.”

Dr Fahad Khater, who will head the group in Egypt, said the partnership will have a tremendous impact on both the quality and accessibility of healthcare in Egypt.

“We’re continually looking for ways to improve our facilities and the care we provide to patients, whether it’s through our new and recently-upgraded hospitals and medical complexes, or via international partnerships with healthcare specialists like Emirates Healthcare Group," he added.
