Alfardan Group has ventured into the medical services sector with the launch of Alfardan Medical with Northwestern Medicine (AMNM). The Alfardan Group unveiled the new project during a press conference held at Northwestern University in Qatar (NU-Q), attended by special guests including representatives from the Ministry of Public Health, and members of the media.
AMNM will offer patients a wide variety of ambulatory care services which will be available later this year. This is Alfardan Group’s first investment in the health sector, as part of its social responsibility towards the State of Qatar and its vision to develop projects that will contribute to the realisation of its national vision.
Chicago-based Northwestern Medicine is a premier academic American health system, anchored by Northwestern Memorial Hospital, one of the top ranked hospitals in the United States. The Northwestern Medicine health system is also affiliated with Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, which also ranked as one of the best medical schools.
According to Alfardan Group President and CEO Omar Hussain Alfardan, the company built its reputation by offering clients lifestyle options that are in keeping with the quality, luxury, and premium services they value. He said that a sustained focus on meeting those needs and aspirations has seen the company reach tremendous heights of success in business.
With the opening of AMNM, our ambition is to enhance Qatar’s medical system and reach global standards in healthcare. We are capable of delivering the most advanced integrated healthcare by leveraging our strengths in this venture, and their expertise in medical services, combined with the renowned capacity for service excellence of Alfardan Group. I am confident that these merits will truly differentiate AMNM as a premier healthcare provider.’
Alfardan Group carried out a rigorous assessment of health care systems with the appropriate medical expertise and reputation prior to selecting Northwestern Medicine to provide the guidance, oversight and advice for both the construction and operation of the new facility.
Northwestern Memorial HealthCare President and CEO Dean M Harrison, said that Northwestern Medicine is committed to providing high-quality, compassionate care to patients.
We are pleased to have the opportunity to assist Alfardan Group in its new project to bring world-class care to Qatar. With this collaboration with the Alfardan Group, we have the unique opportunity to extend our Patients First mission to the Qatari people.’
AMNM will be located at Burj Alfardan in Lusail, and will occupy 11,000 square metres over six dedicated floors. The clinic’s medical staff and clinicians will be a specialised team of multinational professionals, many from the US. The new and valuable addition to the private healthcare in Qatar will compliment Qatar’s position in the field of medical tourism in the region.
Experienced, high-calibre physicians will provide the best levels of healthcare at the ambulatory care centre in various medical specialties, which include ear, nose and throat (ENT), dentistry, dermatology, gastroenterology, internal medicine, ophthalmology, orthopaedics, cosmetic and reconstructive surgery, reproductive endocrinology/embryology, physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R), sleep medicine and executive health.
Alfardan Group’s entry into the medical sector marks the opening of a new chapter in the group’s success as one of Qatar’s pioneering business leaders for over 60 years. The group has grown to become one of the premier family-owned conglomerates in the region. It continuously pursues growth opportunities that contribute to national interests and the Qatar National Vision to diversify the economy and promote sustainable development.
