CMRC admits first patients to new Saudi clinic

Cambridge Medical and Rehabilitation Center (CMRC), a top post-acute rehabilitation and long-term care facility in the UAE, has admitted 15 patients to its first medical facility in Saudi Arabia. 

CMRC’s new 60-bed clinic, located between Dhahran and Alkhobar, aims to help patients requiring post-acute care and rehabilitation services to make large improvements in their quality of life through multidisciplinary rehabilitative therapies including physiatry, physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech and language therapy, and multi-sensory room sessions. 

The facility is staffed by multiple clinical experts including GPs, internal medicine consultants, pediatricians, ICU intensivists, rehabilitation consultants, psychologists and therapists, and will service patients across the eastern region of Saudi Arabia. 

It follows the same clinical procedures and protocols successfully implemented in facilities in the UAE, similarly benefiting from the center’s international partnership with the Spaulding Rehabilitation Network, a teaching affiliate of Harvard Medical School, and accreditations from Joint Commission International, CARF and Planetree.

CMRC Group CEO Dr. Howard S. Podolsky said: “We expand into countries where there is notable demand for post-acute care and rehabilitation services. Like many countries around the world, Saudi Arabia is experiencing a rise in the incidence of non-communicable diseases, birth defects, and life-threatening injuries. Our new facility brings our world-class medical treatment, care, and rehabilitation therapies to the Kingdom through a truly patient-centric approach.”

He added: “We look forward to helping families in the region improve their quality of life and using our international expertise and specialized workforce to support the government of Saudi Arabia’s focus on health care development, as part of Saudi Vision 2030.”
