ProVita International Medical Center Treats a Stroke Patient Back to Health
 

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates – July 1, 2018:   NMC ProVita International Medical Center, a subsidiary of the UAE’s largest healthcare provider NMC Healthcare and the pioneer for post-acute care including long term care, post-acute rehabilitation and home health services in the UAE, nursed a patient back to health following a brain stroke.
 
Tamer, a 45-year-old Egyptian resident of Abu Dhabi, was admitted to NMC ProVita’s inpatient Multi-Disciplinary Medical Rehabilitation Program in March 2018, after having suffered a brain stroke which resulted in severe weakness in his right upper and lower limbs, swallowing difficulties, pain in his right hip and low spirits. He had become dependent with all activities of daily living and required rigorous physiotherapy amongst other treatments to reverse the negative impact of the stroke.
 
“It all happened so suddenly. Tamer had always struggled with high blood pressure and cholesterol levels, but he didn’t anticipate a stroke,” said Tamer’s wife. “It was especially difficult being away from our friends and family back in Egypt.”
 
In line with NMC ProVita’s commitment to giving back to the community and adhering to the humanitarian legacy of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, the center treated Tamer at no cost for one month of his stay. During his time at NMC ProVita, Tamer received world class care from a full multi-disciplinary team, including an occupational therapist, physiotherapist, speech and language therapist, registered nurses amongst others.
 
“Tamer’s improvement is remarkable. Thanks to his dedication and perseverance, paired with the team’s expertise and efforts, Tamer is now able to walk without a cane or any form of support, and has become independent with activities of daily living – inching closer to his normal ways of living at an extraordinary rate,” said Dr. Ahmad Al Khayer, Medical Director of Rehabilitation Services at NMC ProVita. “Tamer’s eagerness to improve through various therapies was an inspiration to me and the team. We’re very pleased we could support him on his road back to health through the provision of high quality treatments.”  
 
Having improved drastically in the last two months and with only a short way to go in his journey of recovery, Tamer has been discharged from NMC ProVita with the appropriate knowledge and treatment methods to continue recovering from home.
 
“I’d like to thank all of the physicians, nurses, therapists and members of the management and administration teams in NMC ProVita International Medical Center, who cared for me the way they would a family member. I take pride in calling them my brothers and sisters, and will forever be grateful for their kindness, attention and devotion,” expressed Tamer.
