Johns Hopkins Medicine International, the global division of Baltimore-based Johns Hopkins Medicine, has signed an agreement to manage Al Corniche Hospital, a 235-bed maternity hospital in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, according to a news release.
The agreement, which calls for Johns Hopkins to provide Al Corniche with clinical and management services, will mark the third such management partnership Johns Hopkins has brokered with a U.A.E. hospital. The provider also is affiliated with 468-bed Tawam Hospital in Al Ain and 135-bed Al Rahba Hospital just outside of Abu Dhabi. All three facilities are Joint Commission International accredited.
Corniche will end its 24-year management partnership with Windermere, Fla.-based United Medical Corp., and employees will be offered new contracts providing the same pay rates, according to hospital officials. -- by Shawn Rhea
