MaK Middle East opens new branch in Fujairah

MaK Middle East LLC, a Caterpillar company established in Dubai in 2017, recently opened a new branch in Fujairah as part of its expanded service reach within the UAE to serve a wider range of customers. In addition, the company is now also officially registered in the Sharjah ports of Hamriyah Freezone, Al-Khalid and Khor Fakkan, enabling service delivery in those facilities.
“In response to positive, early customer demand, MaK Middle East has continued to increase the resident service engineer team in the UAE with transfers of Caterpillar employees from UK and Singapore operations into the UAE hub. Specialist factory trained service engineers covering MaK, EMD and the Napier and KBB turbocharger brands are now resident with MaK Middle East LLC,” the company said.
Access to Fujairah Port in the UAE is already proving its value, not only to local MaK powered vessel owners but also to European cargo customers transiting through the Middle East and using the Fujairah anchorage.
Alan Naisby, managing director of MaK Middle East and MaK Asia, said: “We have successfully identified a high volume of MaK powered vessels docking in Fujairah in previous years. That’s why we want to be closer to our customers to ensure we can provide high quality factory engine service where the customer needs it in an efficient, effective and timely way.”

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, a portfolio company of health care specialist investor TVM Capital Healthcare, also operates facilities in Abu Dhabi and Al-Ain in the UAE.

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.” 

CMRC, a portfolio company of health care specialist investor TVM Capital Healthcare, also operates facilities in Abu Dhabi and Al-Ain in the UAE.

Dr. Helmut Schuehsler, CEO of TVM Capital Healthcare and board member of CMRC, said: “We believe that private equity investment should be a force for good, and that by working in health care, we have a real opportunity to make a difference to patients’ lives. Therefore, we conceptualized and invested in CMRC in the UAE to cater to those in need of post-acute care and an elevated level of rehabilitation. CMRC grew to be the leading post-acute care and rehabilitation provider in the UAE. We are very happy to bring the offer to the people of Saudi Arabia now.”

CMRC offers both inpatient services at its medical centers and outpatient therapy, where patients follow a rehabilitation program after discharge. The company employs more than 500 staff members across all facilities.
