Asan Medical Center extends partnership with Emirates Health Services

The MoU will allow more active exchanges, trainings and collaborations for both institutions.

Asan Medical Center signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with health regulatory authorities of the United Arab Emirates, expanding their active exchanges and collaboration in the field of healthcare.

Under the agreement with Emirates Health Services (EHS), both institutions will collaborate on the expansion of visiting doctors programmes, the development of an integrated healthcare system, joint research and innovation programmes, and training for medical professionals.

Asan Medical Center has a strong relationship with the UAE, cooperating on patient referrals, medical staff training, and management agreements for a gastrointestinal-specialised clinic. 

Last year, the medical centre admitted over 20,860 international patients, with UAE patients accounting for the second highest proportion at 18%.

A significant number of ill patients from the UAE have undertaken surgeries at Asan Medical Center, leading to successful recoveries. For example, 67 UAE patients have undergone liver transplantation at the hospital.

“Asan Medical Center is dedicated to improving the quality of global healthcare through the treatment of severely ill international patients and the transfer of expertise through training medical professionals from various countries,” Profesor In-Ho Jeon, Director of Asan Medical International, said.

Additionally, Asan Medical Center has signed another agreement to export its healthcare system in the UAE with the establishment of the first integrated gastrointestinal specialized hospital in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) by 2026.
