Thumbay Moideen

Founder President - Thumbay Group

Dear Readers,

I am delighted to connect

with you once again. Although

hectic, we have had some

exciting times with lots of

events across all verticals of

Thumbay group.

Recently I was in Durban,

South Africa to participate as a

key note speaker in the 37th

Annual Medical Convention

of The Islamic Medical

Association of South Africa

[IMASA]. I had a great time

interacting with leading healthcare leaders and businessmen

from various parts of the world.

I am happy to inform our readers that His Highness Sheikh

Humaid Bin Rashid Al Nuaimi, Member of the Supreme

Council and Ruler of Ajman inaugurated the new Innovation

and Research Centre and the Thumbay Institute of Precision

Medicine and Translational Research (TIPM&TR) at the Gulf

Medical University.

We are proud to announce the new expansion plans of our

hospitals which were unveiled by H.E. Humaid Al Qutami,

Chairman and Director General of Dubai Health Authority. We

will be adding 100 beds, 45 clinics, and 5 centers of excellence

by 2021. The first center of excellence in Orthopedics –

OrthoSpine Center was recently inaugurated at the Thumbay

Hospital, Dubai.

Thumbay Group’s Healthcare and Retail divisions have expanded

their networks of state-of-the-art family clinics and pharmacies

respectively, by opening new Thumbay Clinics and Thumbay

Pharmacies in Fujairah and Dubai. I wish to congratulate my

son Akbar for taking the initiative to launch Thumbay Group

Healthcare Division’s second Multi Specialty ‘Day Care Hospital’

at University City Road, Sharjah in addition to Rolla, where the

first day care facility was launched earlier this year.

Thumbay Hospital, Hyderabad was formally inaugurated by the

Deputy Chief Minister of the State of Telangana H. E. Mahmood

Ali Khan along with the state Health Minister H.E. Dr. C.

Laxma Reddy. Other dignitaries included Members of the State

Assembly, healthcare authorities, and representatives from

various associations who were also present on the occasion.

In another CSR initiative of our group, Thumbay Hospital signed

an MOU with Sharjah Charity International to provide healthcare

services to the employees of Sharjah Charity International and

their dependents. To this effect, I have signed an MoU with H.E.

Abdullah Sultan Bin Khadem, Executive Director of Sharjah

Charity International.

Another entity of our group, The Terrace Restaurant has

launched ‘Share a Meal Campaign’ to offer free food to the

needy at all of its outlets. We welcome all to be a part of this

noble initiative.

Our annual Healthy Baby Contest & Exhibition 2017 was

held at Thumbay Hospital, Dubai. Every year, the contest is

held under my patronage and we are happy to receive very

good response for the event which is growing every year. It

attracted more than 400 babies and 3500 visitors.

Thumbay Olympics was also a great week-long event that

had more than 1500 employees of the Group, including 22

teams from across 18 business verticals competing in 24

games. I was very happy to witness great sportsmanship

among the contestants. We will be inviting other corporates

to be a part of Thumbay Olympics 2018 and we expect

over 3000 participants in the 2018 edition. Similarly, Gulf

Medical University’s Annual Sports Festival 2017, which

is the largest inter-university sports festival in the region,

attracted more than 2000 students from 28 different

colleges and universities, in 226 events across 10 categories.

More than 2000 people attended the annual Global

Day 2017 organized by Gulf Medical University, which

provides students a platform to display the essence of their

ethnicities and cultures. With a motive to spread awareness

about various lifestyle-related diseases, a special fun run

was organized by Body & Soul Health Club and Spa in

Ajman. The marathon is aimed to engage the community to

participate in a healthy and fun event to promote healthy

lifestyle practices and underline the importance of regular

physical activity among the residents of the UAE.
