Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi to double number of physicians following complaints of delays

Cleveland Clinic plans to double the number of physicians staffing its Abu Dhabi hospital after some patients complained it took too long to get appointments, according to The National.

The hospital said it will hire 200 additional physicians by the end of the year to ensure all patients can be seen within two or three weeks of the scheduling date.

Abdulla Al Shamsi, chief administrative officer of Cleveland Clinic Abu Dhabi, said the hospital, which began accepting patients in March 2015, has seen an "insatiable demand," according to the report.

"We currently have 200 doctors as part of our clinical workforce. This will grow to 400 doctors by the end of next year, and the growth of these doctors will be concentrated on the areas that will address these exact points of demand," Mr. Al Shamsi said, according to the report.
