NEW YORK, May 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The 2016 C3 Saudi-American Healthcare Forum took place in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia on Saturday, April 23th through Wednesday, April 27th at the Ritz Carlton. Mr. Osman Minkara, Managing Director of Aldara Medical Corporation, the developer of Aldara Medical and Hospital Center, delivered welcoming remarks at the opening gala ceremony. Mr. Minkara was also a key speaker on the panel session entitled "Healthcare Start-Ups, Challenges and Opportunities."
Aldara Medical and Hospital Center comprises a state-of-the-art hospital and Riyadh's largest and most technologically-advanced outpatient facility. Aldara's healthcare delivery model is based on a US outpatient services model that has been proven to provide higher quality care at a lower cost and significantly higher patient satisfaction levels.
As Mr. Minkara noted, "Aldara Hospital and Medical Center is a perfect 'live' example of Saudi-US collaboration in the area of healthcare. Seven years ago a group of interdisciplinary medical and non-medical professionals came together to unite behind a bold vision that would redefine the way healthcare is delivered in Saudi Arabia and contribute to the broader transformation of the country as it moves towards its 2030 vision."
After almost 3 million man-hours, the opening of Aldara is now less than 6 months away. Aldara's 103,000 square meter building includes 192 clinics, eight operating theatres, advanced ancillary departments, a state of the art hospital and, a cutting-edge information technology system.
To ensure the quality and efficiency of its healthcare delivery model, Aldara has been working with teams from Henry Ford Health System, one of the largest and most well regarded healthcare groups in the US. Under the terms of a strategic, long-term agreement Aldara is able to access Henry Ford's knowhow, intellectual property, processes and human capital. Over the past 100 years, Henry Ford has been at the forefront of many of the most important developments in healthcare and healthcare delivery, but has never before applied its expertise on this scale outside of the US.
The C3 Saudi-American Healthcare Forum is an exclusive event dedicated to forging new business relationships, fostering existing partnerships and exchanging best practices by building a global healthcare community through bilateral cooperation.
