Alfardan Group ventures into Qatar’s healthcare sector with the launch of a new ambulatory care center.
Alfardan Group (AFG) and Northwestern Medicine (NM) commemorate their partnership with the opening of Alfardan Medical with Northwestern Medicine (AMNM), a patient-centric, ambulatory care center, that reimagines the future of healthcare.
AMNM, located in the heart of Lusail City, is the result of a significant international collaboration between Alfardan Group and U.S.-based Northwestern Medicine. At AMNM’s state-of-the-art treatment facilities, service excellence, combined with advanced patient-centric care, is provided by a multinational medical team, with top U.S. medical talent making up a large proportion of the center’s staff.
The introduction of AMNM in Qatar marks Alfardan Group’s first venture in the healthcare sector. This comes as part of AFG’s social responsibility towards the State of Qatar and the Group’s vision to successfully develop projects that contribute to the Qatar National Vision 2030. The partnership between Alfardan Group and Northwestern Medicine for AMNM leverages both organizations’ complementary strengths: Alfardan Group’s legacy and scale in offering hospitality and luxury experiences, and Northwestern Medicine’s longstanding history
and leadership in the medical field.
The Chicago-based Northwestern Medicine is one of the United States’ leading academic health systems, anchored by Northwestern Memorial Hospital, one of the top-ranked hospitals in the United States. The Northwestern Medicine health system is affiliated with Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, a leading research oriented medical school.
At AMNM, experienced, high-caliber physicians provide high-quality medical care in various medical specialties, including Ear, Nose and Throat, Dentistry, Dermatology, Gastroenterology, Internal Medicine, Ophthalmology, Orthopedics, Plastic Surgery, Reproductive/ Endocrinology/ Infertility, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Sleep Medicine and Executive Health.
Benefiting from the interdisciplinary collaboration between the different departments at AMNM, patients will receive high-quality medical care from outstanding doctors and friendly medical staff using state-of-the-art, U.S.A. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved equipment. This equipment aids physicians’ fluidity of movement and their efficient service delivery, ensuring the patients’ comfort and an overall seamless journey across the facility.
Mr. Omar Hussain Alfardan, President and CEO of Alfardan Group (AFG), said: As the pioneering lifestyle brand in Qatar and the region, Alfardan Group has created a legacy of offering quality, luxury, and premium services to our clients. The cooperation between us and Northwestern Medicine is built on the shared values of service excellence and delivering world-class experiences. AMNM will deliver advanced integrated healthcare by leveraging Northwestern Medicine’s expertise in medical services and Alfardan Group’s renowned capacity for service excellence. These merits will position AMNM as one of the leading healthcare providers in the country.”
He added: “Opening a new healthcare facility during a pandemic is not easy, but our strong commitment and dedication to serving the community and providing service excellence, even in times of uncertainty, has compelled us to ensure that AMNM is ready to welcome patients. I would like to sincerely thank the Ministry of Public Health for their support as we begin to operate.”
Spanning over six floors in the iconic Burj Alfardan, AMNM’s facilities have been designed around the patient’s experience, adhering to international benchmarks and standards of medical infrastructure, architectural design, and services. AMNM offers patients and their families an environment of privacy and comfort, in a luxurious setting.
Dr. Jessica Adam, Chief Medical Officer of AMNM, said: “Powered by academic heritage, tech- led innovation, and a continuous pursuit of service excellence, Northwestern Medicine boasts a proven track record in the delivery of a premier healthcare system and patient-centric care. At AMNM, the patients’ individuality is respected, empowering them to become active participants and make informed decisions about their healthcare plans. By bringing
Northwestern Medicine’s patient-centric care model to Qatar, we have ensured that AMNM will be one of the leading forces in offering research-based, high-quality, and compassionate care in the country.”
Mr. Dean M. Harrison, President and Chief Executive Officer, Northwestern Memorial HealthCare said: “Supporting the delivery of world-class care with an exceptional experience in Lusail City is an important milestone for our Patients First mission. As the world continues to respond to the global COVID-19 pandemic, this facility provides Northwestern Medicine the opportunity to partner with the Alfardan Group to serve the people of Qatar.”
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the safety of AMNM staff and patients is ensured by following guidelines set by the Ministry of Public Health (MoPH). All patients and staff entering AMNM will receive a temperature check and symptom screening. Other measures in place include frequent sterilization, sanitization, and social distancing.
