Shurooq signs up for a Korean healthcare project in Sharjah


May 20, 2018 | By RetailME Bureau

Sharjah Investment and Development Authority (Shurooq) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with REI Holding Group and Haewon Medical Foundation Sejong General Hospital to establish the first Korean hospital in Sharjah.

The signing ceremony took place in Seoul, where Marwan bin Jassim Al Sarkal, CEO of Shurooq, along with other representatives from Shurooq and REI Holding, toured the Sejong General Hospital. They saw some of the latest healthcare technologies, which are likely to make their debut with the new hospital in Sharjah.

The new hospital will be the first of its kind healthcare facility in the UAE to offer state-of-the-art Korean technologies and solutions specialising in open-heart surgery, cardiac care and medical expertise in other fields.

The MoU signing will play a key role in strengthening Sharjah’s position as a premium healthcare destination across the GCC and the wider MENA region.

Marwan Al Sarkal, Soon bong Hong, chairman of REI Holding Group, and Jinsin Park, chairman of Haewon Medical Foundation Sejong General Hospital, signed the MoU.

“This is another excellent example of foreign investment in Sharjah’s healthcare industry and demonstrates once again the appeal of the emirate on a global scale,” says Al Sarkal.

“The advantages of this project are not only in providing some of the best cardiac care available to residents, but there are also enormous benefits to Sharjah’s economy in attracting medical tourism,” he adds.

“Advanced Korean medical system and operation infrastructure are already making positive changes in UAE. Now, we hope to promote UAE-Korea healthcare sector exchanges by vitalising knowhow and technologies of Korean medicine in Sharjah,” says Soon bong Hong.
