Pioneering healthcare model in the Middle East leads to further success in the region's Oil & Gas industry

PROJECT

National Ambulance Company (NAC) in the United Arab Emirates

BACKGROUND

In the rapidly expanding Middle East, the United Arab Emirates (UAE) Government has sought to grow healthcare capability across the country. One of those initiatives was to establish and manage a private ambulance service in Abu Dhabi, operated in a corporate partnership by the Abu Dhabi Police and an established international healthcare provider.

After an international search by the Abu Dhabi Police, Aspen Medical was selected as the international healthcare partner over companies from Europe and the USA, due to our reputation for innovation, high quality operations, clinical standards and experience in remote and challenging areas.

The corporation – the National Ambulance Company (NAC) - initially provided private ambulance services in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi.  This ground-breaking partnership, the first with an Australian company, has helped to pioneer new models of healthcare service development and delivery throughout the UAE and the region.

Most recently, the NAC won a contract to provide Helicopter Emergency Medical Services (HEMS) to all subsidiary companies in the Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC).

ADNOC was established in 1971, to operate in all areas of the oil and gas industry and since then has steadily broadened its activity establishing companies and subsidiaries and creating an integrated oil and gas industry in Abu Dhabi. Today, the company manages and oversees oil production of more than 2.7 million barrels a day which ranks it among the top ten oil and gas companies in the world. ADNOC has 14 subsidiary companies working in the various fields of the oil, gas and petrochemical industry as well as crude oil and gas transport and services.
