Jetex and American Hospital Dubai launch new healthcare program for international patients

Jetex, a global leader in executive aviation, and American Hospital Dubai, the UAE’s premier and preferred healthcare destination, announced a new partnership to deliver efficient, state-of-the-art medical travel services for international patients.

The strategic partnership was revealed on the sidelines of Arab Health 2021, the largest gathering of healthcare and trade professionals in the MENA region.

The agreement takes Dubai’s medical tourism to the next level, operating at the intersection of private aviation and medical urgencies.

A fleet of ambulance aircraft equipped with intensive care units, can transport patients from any part of the world to American Hospital Dubai. The ambulance aircraft guarantee top-quality medical assistance and attention throughout the journey.

Upon arrival at the Jetex VIP Terminal in Dubai, American Hospital Dubai’s medical team will welcome the patients and accompanying family members and facilitate ground or helicopter transportation to the hospital. In addition, Jetex can arrange hotel accommodation and other services for the family members during their stay in the city.

Renowned for its world-class medical professionals, cutting-edge medical technology, excellent diagnostics and affordable care and services, Dubai’s status as a hub for medical tourism will receive a further boost with this new venture.

Established in 1996, the 252-bed American Hospital is a premier private healthcare provider in the Middle East and the medical destination of choice for international patients. It delivers world-class patient care in more than 40 medical and surgical specialties focusing on highly personalized care and treatment programs.
