Abu Dhabi: Al Noor Hospitals Group Plc (ANHA.L; the “Company” or “Al Noor”), the largest private healthcare service provider in Abu Dhabi, today announces that it has reached an agreement to acquire Rochester Wellness.
Founded in 2006, Rochester Wellness is a leading provider of long-term physical, speech, and occupational rehabilitation therapy caring for patients in their homes and through two inpatient facilities in Dubai and Muscat.
