"Expectations for service are extremely high in the Middle East - patients there want the same things as patients here in the U.S." – A. Marc Harrison, M.D.

After seven years of construction, Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi opened its doors to patients in 2015. The facility, located on Al Maryah Island, is the largest structural steel building in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) housing 364 beds and 26 operating theatres.

Cleveland Clinic is just one of several renowned hospital systems increasing efforts to build on their international reputations and find business opportunities in other regions of the world where growing populations are demanding more and better healthcare. Doing business abroad can be complex, requiring hospital executives to grasp not just the healthcare industry in another country but also the politics and business regulations.

Join us for a conversation with Toby Cosgrove, M.D., President and Chief Executive Offer of Cleveland Clinic, and A. Marc Harrison, M.D., Chief Executive Officer of Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi, on the intricacies of bringing the Cleveland Clinic - and its culture - to the UAE.
