Burjeel Holdings and Response Plus Holding (RPM) with support from Egypt’s Cleopatra Hospitals Group are collaborating to offer emergency and complex medical support to severely injured children transferred from Gaza.
The entities are in talks with relevant authorities and the operations will commence upon obtaining approvals. Efforts are also underway by RPM to establish a field hospital, with up to 60 beds, at the Rafah border crossing to offer onsite emergency care, damage control procedures, and definitive treatments for pediatric patients.
Burjeel Holdings, which recently launched PhysioTherabia in Saudi Arabia, is one of the largest healthcare providers in the MENA region. As part of this collaboration, Burjeel Holdings and RPM will facilitate the transportation of the children requiring secondary and tertiary care to hospitals in Cairo and the UAE. Patients with advanced medical needs will be transported to Cairo. Meanwhile, those requiring comprehensive, high-end care for complex conditions, including orthopedic, pediatric and neonatal intensive care (PICU/NICU), surgical interventions, and plastic and reconstructive surgeries will be admitted to Burjeel Medical City, the largest private quaternary care hospital in the UAE.
Burjeel Holdings and RPM, one of the largest onsite healthcare and emergency medical services providers in the region, have successfully collaborated with various governments to execute life-saving evacuation and medical missions in Yemen, Turkey, Syria, and provide emergency support to victims of crises. As Egypt’s leading private healthcare provider, Cleopatra Hospital’s pediatric department has a wealth of experience in providing immediate and advanced care to children in Greater Cairo.
Dr. Shamsheer Vayalil, Founder and Chairman of Burjeel Holdings and Chairman of RPM, commented, “Our collaboration with Cleopatra Hospitals Group is a testament to our shared commitment to serving communities in need. Cleopatra Hospital’s strategic location, coupled with its medical expertise, and our rich experience in managing similar projects, collectively ensures that the children will receive unparalleled care.”
Ahmed Badreldin, Chairman of Cleopatra Hospitals Group, said, “This timely collaboration is a reflection of the shared commitment between Burjeel Holdings and Cleopatra Hospitals Group to uphold our social responsibilities and deliver leading pediatric care to children in need. This initiative is an exemplary demonstration of the power of partnership in tackling critical healthcare challenges.”
