The centre will reportedly focus on training and research in the field of cardiology, with DHA aiming to make it into a training hub in the region.

Commenting on DHA’s collaboration with New York Presbyterian Hospital, Al Qutami said: “Dubai Health Authority is aware of the growing demand for its specialised health services across hospitals, primary care centres, and specialised centres.

“Cardiology is one of the most important fields of medicine and the establishment of an international centre for cardiology will increase Dubai's competitive capabilities on the international medical front, and will further bolster its position on the global medical tourism map.”
