Hats off to all of our good friends at Methodist International. When asked by Emaar (of Burj Khalifa fame) to build a clinic that looks like a hotel, they really came through - take a look at this lobby! When you check in, they bring you tea, a hot towel, and antiseptic lotion - nice touches, especially when you're sick and/or injured. Take a look at the lobby of Burj Khalifa Medical Center:
And if you're lucky enough to be sick here, you get a waiting room that is nicer than your living room. This is a far cry from the public hospitals around the Middle East where you're as likely to get diagnosed with pregnancy as you are a broken wrist, so we certainly welcome the change.
And since I'm writing this while I'm home sick in bed, maybe it's time to try out that new insurance card...
I hope you're forwarding this message to members of the US congress - maybe it will get them off the dime about health care reform over here.
