WAM WASHINGTON, DC, 26 April 2011 (WAM) - His Highness General Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces visited Sheikh Zayed Institute for Pediatric Surgical Innovation at Children's National Medical Center (CNMC) in Washington. The Institute was created in 2009 following a $150 million donation from the government of Abu Dhabi. H.H. Sheikh Mohammed was accompanied by H.H. Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, UAE Minister of Foreign Affairs.

During his visit, the Crown Prince toured the new, state-of-the-art facility which focuses on making pediatric surgery more precise, less invasive, and pain-free. H.H. also met with several Emirati patients and their families and enquired about the process of the patients' treatment and the nature of medical care they were receiving.

Abu Dhabi's contribution to CNMC represents a shared vision to significantly and measurably advance medical innovation to create healthier and safer surgical outcomes for children worldwide. With the high-caliber staff of the Institute, the contribution also represents a significant investment in knowledge and ideas that would help develop life-saving medical inventions, tools and procedures that will benefit children around the world.
