Apex, an investment firm from the United Arab Emirates, has entered into an agreement with Israel’s Sheba Hospital to promote healthcare technologies in the UAE and the Gulf region. The final agreement will be signed in the UAE on September 21, reports Reuters.
This is yet another example of what new ties between Israel and the Arab world can bring. To think that such things could have been achieved years ago.
Yoel Hareven, director of Sheba International at Sheba Medical Center, said, “We’ve embedded existing Israeli telemedicine (remote treatment) technology which allows us to provide medical care to coronavirus patients while minimizing risk to the medical teams – this is of great interest to the Emirates,”
The Sheba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer is a university-affiliated tertiary referral hospital that serves as Israel’s national medical center in many fields.
Adjacent to Tel Aviv, it is the most comprehensive medical center in the Middle East, renowned for its compassionate care and leading-edge medicine. It is also a major medical-scientific research powerhouse that collaborates internationally with the bio-tech and pharmaceutical industries to develop new drugs, treatments and technologies, and a foremost global center for medical education.
