    The UAE-based VPS Healthcare has announced the launch of Burjeel Holdings 
on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos on Sunday 
to consolidate its healthcare offerings in the UAE, Oman, and across the GCC. 
As an intermediary holding company established under VPS Healthcare, Burjeel

clinics, and allied services.

    Dr. Shamsheer Vayalil, Chairman and Managing Director of VPS Healthcare, 
launching Burjeel Holdings to consolidate the organization's healthcare 
offerings on the side
"Burjeel Holdings enables us to consolidate our healthcare offerings under one 
platform to create an integrated ecosystem, which will continue our vision to 
offer end-to-end health solutions under a single window. As we embark on our 
expansion journey, the platform will provide the foundation to scale up 
operations in new geographies in the GCC and beyond. It will also enable us to 
take strategic corporate actions needed to drive our future growth," said Dr. 
Shamsheer Vayalil, Chairman and Managing Director, VPS Healthcare. "We are 
proud to launch this exciting next phase of growth on the sidelines of the 
World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos as a representation of our vision 
to explore, expand, and grow our capabilities."

    Burjeel Holdings will operate nearly 60 assets catering to all 
socio-economic segments across a range of brands, including Burjeel Hospitals, 
Medeor Hospital, LLH Hospital, Lifecare Hospital, and Tajmeel. Its flagship 
facility, Burjeel Medical City, is the largest private hospital in the UAE and 
the only ESMO-accredited center. In addition to having renowned world-class 
centers of excellence, Burjeel Holdings consolidates the largest diagnostic 
network in the UAE and the largest comprehensive cancer center in the nation. 
Burjeel Holdings will be instrumental in continuing VPS Healthcare's mission of 
delivering quality and inclusive medical care to people around the world.

    Connecting care, scale, and community to benefit refugees from Ukraine

    Dr. Shamsheer began his entrepreneurial career with a vision to ensure 
healthcare equity. In his journey towards fulfilling this vision, he has also 
focused on outreach through humanitarian efforts. Alongside the launch of 
Burjeel Holdings, Dr. Shamsheer, a highly regarded philanthropist, announced a 
commitment of 50 pediatric stem cell transplantations to support Ukraine as 
well as additional support on behalf of those who join the pledge of support at 
Burjeel House in Davos.

    Dr. Shamsheer and VPS Healthcare have been at the forefront of many 
humanitarian initiatives over the last 15 years. In 2018, VPS Healthcare 
enabled the treatment of Yemeni war victims at its hospitals in India. The 
organization offered the '100 Free Heart Surgeries' initiative for those in 
need as a tribute to the late H.H. Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan.

    "I am pleased to announce our commitment of support for those affected by 
the conflict in Ukraine. This contribution is being made toward the important 
task of rebuilding a strong community in the war-torn region. We have seen that 
children, especially those undergoing cancer treatment, are suffering the most 
in this very unfortunate conflict. Burjeel Holdings will look to provide them 
with the care they desperately need," said Dr. Shamsheer.

    VPS Healthcare announced the launch of Burjeel Holdings and its commitment 
to supporting the Ukrainian refugees at the Burjeel House on the sidelines of 
the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos. The Burjeel House will 
convene intentional, collaborative dialogues on topics like catalyzing 
equitable health training, and advancing medical innovation.
