The agreement will provide comprehensive medical services at the DAFZA's primary clinic or at any of the DHA’s medical facilities.
His Excellency Humaid Al Qutami, Director-General of the DHA and Dr Mohammed Al Zarooni, Director General of DAFZA, signed the deal on Wednesday in Dubai.
DAFZA staff and service providers, as well as Dubai Government employees, will be eligible.
Healthcare professionals will operate the clinic, five days a week from Sunday to Thursday.
They will also ensure the provision of the required equipment and medication as well as the needed medical, nursing and laboratory supplies according to the latest standards and specifications approved by the DHA.
The Authority will have the responsibility to fully supervise and secure the process of referring patients and injured persons to its hospitals and centres to complete their treatment.
