After being COVID-19-free, Canadian Hospital Dubai honors frontliners

The Canadian Speciality Hospital (CSH) in Dubai, which was recently declared free of coronavirus disease (COVID-19), honored their 160 frontliners who worked day and night to treat affected patients.

According to the health workers, the most challenging case they faced was that of COVID-19 survivor Francis Nartafeliciano, who was in the Intensive Care Unit for 72 days and in hospital for four months.

Being on mechanical ventilation for 60 days, he suffered a major stroke and had to undergo multiple surgeries.

Dr Yashar Ali, CEO of Canadian Speciality Hospital, said: “We are proud to honor our COVID-19 warriors, who put their lives at risk during the pandemic at our COVID ward. Despite the inherent health risk involved, our front-line people did their job at its best. We salute their significant role to make the hospital perform a successful role in containing the virus in the UAE and safeguard the health of residents.”

He also noted that since they are now COVID-19-free they have resumed providing health care services such as elective surgeries, diagnostic and treatment, orthopedics, ophthalmology, dental, and dermatology.
