ProVita International Medical Center Celebrates First Anniversary
Abu Dhabi, 14th October 2012: One year after its official inauguration, ProVita International Medical Center Abu Dhabi is sharing in the occasion of its first anniversary with patients and families, whilst looking ahead to the opening of its second facility in Al Ain. ProVita currently is the only facility of its kind in the MENA region to provide long-term care for acute, ventilator dependent patients in a non-hospital setting. The facility has witnessed high demand from chronically ill patients, who were previously cared for in hospital ICUs or long-term care facilities abroad. With ProVita Abu Dhabi at full capacity, a second 50-bed ProVita facility is scheduled to open in December 2012 in Al Ain’s Al Foah District. ProVita’s doctors, nurses, respiratory therapists and related specialists offer the highest standards of professional medical care and therapy, designed according to each patient’s needs with a clear objective: to enhance quality of life, increase the patient’s human potential and continually promote normalcy for the patient and their family. Executive Chairman of the Board Dr. Helmut M. Schuehsler said, ‘’since ProVita opened we have witnessed some significant milestones reached by our patients who strive for normalcy in their everyday lives. The whole team has worked tirelessly to ensure that the aim of enhancing patients’ quality of life is being met and I am incredibly proud of what has been achieved. We look forward to seeing ProVita grow and are making every effort to open the new site in Al Ain in 2013.’’ ProVita is a portfolio company of TVM Capital MENA, the first international private equity house with a focus in healthcare to establish operations in the MENA region. The genesis of the clinic, and more specifically the collaboration with the founder of ProVita clinics in Germany, Christina Shawky-Boehme, is consistent with the TVM Capital MENA strategy of involving leading operators from more fully developed healthcare markets such as in Europe or North America to provide unique and specialized healthcare services in the Middle East, directly catering to the growing local demand.
