Get a recap ( Al Ain-based NMC celebrates two years of neonatal care : July 30, 2016 )

On July 30 2016, over 200 people came together in Danat Al Ain Resort to celebrate the two-year anniversary of the Al Ain-based NMC Speciality Hospital's Level III Neonatal ICU unit.

The Al Ain hospital is the only private hospital in the Abu Dhabi Emirate to accept premature babies as young as 23 weeks old, and has successfully cared for over 300 premature babies to this date.

The celebrations were marked with a number of testimonies from parents who have benefited largely from the efforts of the NICU unit staff, who were also in attendance at the event along with their children.

Dr B R Shetty, Executive Vice Chairman and CEO of NMC Healthcare, along with his wife, Dr C R Shetty, the Group Medical Director also attended with Dr Anil Pillai, Deputy Medical Director and Consultant Neonatologist who spearheaded the launch of the neonatal division in the Al Ain branch.

Both Dr Shetty and Dr Pillai delivered keynote addresses highlighting NMC's commitment to quality healthcare and their joy over the positive impact the neonatal unit has had on many families.
