Arabian Healthcare Group: The northern Emirate of Ras Al Khaimah is taking steps to further advance its growing healthcare sector through the continuation of an alliance between Arabian Healthcare Group (AHG) and CommonSpirit Health, a leading U.S. healthcare provider.

The collaboration, which was first announced in 2018, means that AHG’s flagship brand, the state-of-the-art RAK Hospital, is the only healthcare institution in the entire MENA region to be aligned with Dignity Health International (DHI), CommonSpirit’s international health representative, cementing the hospital’s position as a preferred medical destination for both international and local patients. The unique collaboration also heralds an expansion of RAK Hospital, which will triple its capacity to become a 200-bed facility by 2024.

The key areas of collaboration with CommonSpirit, which operates 140 hospitals and more than 1,500 care sites across 21 U.S. states, will include digital innovation, training and education, clinical alignment, care coordination, network expansion and improving the overall patient experience.

With emphasis on cardiac services, orthopedics, neurosciences, musculoskeletal conditions, and rehabilitation, the expansion is designed to allow regional patients to receive fully coordinated care and have access to clinical expertise across DHI’s affiliated network of doctors.

Among the care centers widely recognized with clinical expertise in DHI’s U.S. network are the Barrow Neurological Institute in Phoenix, Arizona; Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center in Houston, Texas; and Virginia Mason Franciscan Health in Seattle, Washington.
