A Message From

Dr. Naser Ammash

Chief Executive Officer

Since the formation of the United Arab Emirates in 1971, Abu Dhabi has made significant strides in meeting local patients’ needs for both basic and complex care. The evolution of the health care sector has brought the latest technologies and treatments, global brands, expertise, and unique services to the UAE.

Inspired by the vision of the Emirate’s leaders, Abu Dhabi Health Services Company (SEHA) has consistently elevated the quality of care it provides patients—most recently, through its novel partnership with Mayo Clinic at Sheikh Shakhbout Medical City (SSMC). Mayo Clinic is a not-for-profit, global health care leader in clinical practice, education and research. This unique partnership marks a major milestone in advancing health care in Abu Dhabi and the UAE, while inspiring hope, reducing the burden of sickness and promoting well-being and health.

SEHA is the largest health care network in the UAE, where it is a highly respected medical leader. Mayo Clinic holds a long history of international cooperation that includes global knowledge sharing, as well as a deeply rooted values system focused on putting patients’ needs first. Together, we are committed to fostering innovation and a patient-centered approach at SSMC as we work to exceed international standards and patient expectations while responding to the community’s needs. Over the next decade, we plan to transition SSMC into a premier destination for medical care in the Middle East.

As Chief Executive Officer, I am dedicated to ensuring SSMC meets the evolving needs of patients in our community and region. Our leadership team is committed to developing the best workforce with the most engaged staff, newest technology, resources and processes together to provide a “category of one” service that combines excellent care and innovative customer service for every patient seeking our expertise.

We look forward to welcoming you to SSMC, where you will be cared for by a multidisciplinary team with well-integrated services across all specialities, ready to serve your every need.
Thank you for entrusting us with your health care needs.
