LEMOYNE, Pa., November 9, 2015 – CURE International, a Christian organization operating charitable hospitals and programs worldwide, has opened a new state-of-the-art facility for Oasis Hospital in Al Ain, the second largest city in the emirate of Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates, after years of planning and preparation.
A grand opening reception will be held for special guests, including the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, on Nov. 15, 2015.
“This new hospital is the fruit of the next generation of the ruling family. Sheikh Mohammed and his partnership with CURE International continues to provide the best maternity and infant care to the United Arab Emirates,” said Dale Brantner, CEO of CURE International. “We’re committed to continuing Oasis’ legacy as the best hospital in the country for childbirth in both standards of excellence and in loving the people like Jesus. Our best days are ahead.”
Christian missionaries, Dr. Pat and Marian Kennedy, under the visionary leadership of the late Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahayan, founded Oasis Hospital in 1960. Ever since, the hospital has provided first-rate health care to the Emirati and international communities of the United Arab Emirates, emphasizing care of women, children, and families. The only nonprofit hospital in the region, Oasis Hospital serves individuals from more than 100 countries and has facilitated the births of more than 100,000 children.
A number of members of the Abu Dhabi’s ruling family, including the Crown Prince, were born in the hospital, and have acknowledged the facility’s pioneering efforts to provide world-class medical care to the area. A generous grant from the Abu Dhabi rulers helped make the building of the new Oasis Hospital possible.
The new building features expanded bed space, a high-tech birthing center, and 20 NICU beds. The facility solidifies the hospital’s motto of “Birthplace of Leaders for the Nation” and affirms CURE International’s commitment to the Arabian Peninsula.
In addition to offering the highest level of medical care, CURE International, which acquired Oasis Hospital in 2006, also offers spiritual care to its patients. For more information about the hospital, visit http://oasishospital.org.
