Thank you for your interest in Advanced Rehab Center and taking the time to visit our website. This website was designed to better familiarize you with our company. We want to introduce you to the Advanced Rehab team and give you an idea of our journey and business philosophy.
I received my Executive Masters of Business Administration (EMBA) from the American University in Cairo and received my Bachelors of Science degree in Physical Therapy from King Saud University in Riyadh. I am a Licensed Physiotherapist; with more than 20 years’ of experience in treating physically disabled children suffering from Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, brain injury and various metabolic and genetic disorders. I founded Advanced Rehab Center in 2008 for treating children with special needs in Jeddah.
My purpose was to establish a center in which parents can receive a holistic approach to their child’s needs. I had several parents approach me and asked for a more intensive program which was extremely limited during this time in Saudi Arabia.
Having spent twenty years of my career working in the field of physiotherapy, the needs were obvious. Parents and patients were looking for an innovative approach that they could use to improve their overall outcome and a place that would introduce them to these methods as well as instruct them how to use it in a home setting.
Being a pioneer for new methods has allowed me to introduce new ways of viewing the patient and their treatment process in a more holistic manner. The innovation of new methods of treatment takes commitment of time and resources. I have always held high expectations for what I feel needs to be delivered to our patients and their parents. We are committed to finding ways to improve our performance. I recently invested in the creation of a new facility that can not only treat children but adults as well. The center is equipped with the latest technology in physiotherapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, sensory integration and psychological tools to provide the most reliable service to our clients.
As the owner, I am committed to providing the most up to date training available to all therapist employed with Advanced Rehab Center. All staff are required to meet the industry standards and are selected based upon the experience and knowledge within their specified field of therapy.
As we move ahead, Advanced Rehab Center will continue to build on what we started in 2008 to meet the ever evolving needs of our clients. As we mature, the saying “the more things change the more they stay the same” takes on a whole new meaning. As things change, our commitment to the needs of the patient and the community will remain the same.
