Cedars-Sinai President and Chief Executive Officer Thomas M. Priselac visited The View Hospital today for a firsthand look at the state-of-the-art facility that will provide the highest quality care to patients throughout the Gulf Cooperation Council region.

The View Hospital—an affiliation between Cedars-Sinai and Elegancia Healthcare, a subsidiary of Estithmar Holding—opened on Dec. 18, 2022, the same day Qatar celebrated Qatar National Day and hosted the FIFA World Cup final.

Priselac toured the facility with Estithmar Holding’s Chairman, Moutaz Al-Khayyat, and Ramez Al-Khayyat, Vice Chairman of Estithmar Holding and Chairman of The View Hospital. They were joined by Heitham Hassoun, MD, Vice President and Medical Director of Cedars-Sinai International

Group members viewed the hospital’s medical units, which meet the highest international standards for health facilities, and they met with the hospital’s physicians and staff to discuss the affiliation. The hospital will provide comprehensive inpatient and outpatient programs, with 240 inpatient beds and several specialties and centers of excellence—all equipped with the latest technology.

Physicians at The View Hospital will be able to access world-class specialists at Cedars-Sinai and work together in sharing expertise and best practices to develop processes and procedures that provide patients with the highest standard of care.

Cedars-Sinai has been named the No. 2 hospital in the United States and No. 1 in California in U.S. News & World Report’s "Best Hospitals 2022-23" rankings.

Priselac said he was impressed by the hospital’s high-caliber staff and facilities and noted that the affiliation will allow medical professionals from The View Hospital to attend clinical care training sessions with Cedars-Sinai and collaborate in multiple areas.

He said the hospital represents an important milestone in Cedars-Sinai’s ongoing efforts to expand internationally with the goal of bringing care closer to patients through affiliations, office openings and teleconsultations in several global destinations, including the GCC, China, Indonesia and Mexico.

“The View Hospital is an innovative new facility that will bring a new level of care to patients and an important step in Cedars-Sinai bringing its unique brand of world-class care to patients globally,” Priselac said.

Commenting on Priselac’s visit, AlKhayyat said: “We are pleased to welcome Mr. Thomas M. Priselac to The View Hospital, and I am confident that our collaboration with Cedars-Sinai, an international leader in delivering advanced, high-quality care to patients from around the globe, will contribute to the growing healthcare landscape in Qatar and the region and will offer advanced care to the community.”
