The Aster Medical Centre in Gudaibiya will bring affordable and convenient medical care within reach of one of the densest population areas in Bahrain with over 500,000 inhabitants, of which 67% are expatriates.

While the group’s international expansion is in line with its vision of quality healthcare, the company aims to transform the healthcare system of the community it operates in, by bringing advanced medical care of the highest quality to the residents at affordable cost delivered through qualified health practitioners.
