In response to the growing demand for highly skilled clinicians in the region, leading global healthcare staffing provider Medacs Healthcare has opened a new office in Dubai.
Situated in the prime location of Dubai Healthcare City, the new office will allow Medacs Healthcare to work much more closely with local candidates and provide clients with better access to a global database containing over 200,000 medical professionals.
Medacs Healthcare is also delighted to announce a ground-breaking partnership with the Emirates Hospital Association (EHA). The EHA is an independent, non-profit organisation, set up to improve healthcare services and patient outcomes throughout the Emirates region.
Medacs Healthcare will be working with the EHA and other stakeholders to develop a consistent approach to healthcare recruitment processes in the region, and help ease common HR issues facing private hospitals in the UAE.
The EHA is keen to leverage the global expertise and extensive experience Medacs Healthcare has in working with world-leading healthcare systems, such as the NHS. Medacs Healthcare will also provide support to standardise accreditations for medical professionals and improve training.
Dr David Saxton, Chief Medical Officer at EHA said: “We welcome Medacs Healthcare’s specialist international recruitment expertise. Our strategic partnership will leverage their experience of successfully delivering to the NHS and private healthcare organisations with an international reach.”
Norman Richmond, CEO of EHA commented: "Reliable, professional and timely talent acquisition in a healthcare environment is a universal challenge for clinicians, hospital administrators and HR leadership teams. Our strategic partnership with Medacs Healthcare opens the door to a more professional and strategic approach for all of our members."
David Taylor, Managing Director – Middle East and Asia at Medacs Healthcare said: “We are delighted to strengthen our presence in the region by opening a new office in Dubai and forming a ground-breaking partnership with the EHA. With the forthcoming WorldExpo2020 in Dubai, it is a very exciting time for the UAE and we are proud to be involved in shaping the future provision of healthcare services in the region.“
