Health and Innovation awards


The Winners:

The Arab region’s leading healthcare monthly, Middle East Hospital magazine (MEH), presented their inaugural Health and Innovation Awards at an awards ceremony on January 26th at Arab Health 2010 in Dubai.  The awards, for suppliers of medical equipment to the Middle East region, were presented by the renowned surgeon and UK Government healthcare ambassador Lord Darzi.

The editor of MEH, Guy Rowland, said, “these awards will recognise the contribution of companies from across the globe to healthcare services in the Middle East, and the benefits their products have provided for hospitals, clinicians and patients in the region. The Arab countries import the vast majority of their medical devices and healthcare products, and the introduction of high quality, innovative new technologies by medical equipment manufacturers has played a major role in the ongoing revolution in healthcare provision taking place in the Middle East.”
