NMC Health have opened a new medical centre in Abu Dhabi despite the troubled private health provider appointing advisers for debt restructuring and the threat of liquidation. 

At the opening of the centre in Karama, Chief Executive Michael Davis said: “We are extremely honoured and excited to open yet another branch of our leading multispecialty medical centre to address the ever-changing needs of the community.”

He also stated that the medical centre will act like a front liner during the Covid-19 pandemic so government and private hospitals can provide secondary and tertiary levels of care. 

The Royal Medical Centre is equipped with the latest technology - this includes equipment such as a radiology unit, x-ray unit and a 1.5 Tesla MRI machine. 

The centre hosts a team of over 30 doctors, 35 nurses and paramedics. 

It provides services such as obstetrics & gynaecology, paediatrics, general surgery, family medicine, orthopaedics, urology, paediatric dentistry, dermatology, ENT, endocrinology, ophthalmology, cardiology and physiotherapy as well as a pharmacy.

Earlier this month, the KBBO Group - whose chairman is a major shareholder within NMC had appointed advisers to restructure outstanding liabilities. 

However, the joint administrators for NMC - Alvarez & Marsal have said that they are expecting the company to be put into liquidation.
