Words of inspiration

As an organization grows, it must

become more human, not less.

President’s Note



Thumbay Moideen

Founder President, Board of Governors

These are exciting times for

Thumbay Group, as all our

brands are buzzing with ac-

tivities at the moment.

The Gulf Medical University

is all set to welcome a fresh

batch of students from all

over the world to its various

programs. The number of

students aspiring to enroll at

GMU has witnessed a phe-

nomenal increase every year;

and this year has been no

different. We understand the

faith that the students and

parents place in our hands,

and we are doing all that we can to exceed their expectations.

To complement the UAE Government’s praiseworthy initiative,

the ‘National Program on Happiness and Positivity’, we are hav-

ing “Happy Hours” at all our hospitals and clinics during Septem-

ber to November this year. From 4pm to 5pm daily, all Thumbay

Hospitals and Thumbay Clinics are offering free consultations to

visitors across all specialties. We hope that our humble efforts to

spread happiness and cheer will benefit the people of the coun-


Speaking of spreading happiness, it is heartening to know that

our Ramadan initiative ‘Donate & Change Lives’ had indeed suc-

ceeded in spreading happiness and touching lives! Across all

Thumbay Hospitals in the UAE, we not only encouraged people

to donate books and toys for kids, but we also had an exclusive

kids’ play area throughout Ramadan, where children could play,

read and relax; all which helped widen the horizons of their

knowledge. It was also a chance for grown-ups and children alike,

to experience the spirit of Ramadan.

The first edition of the region’s first comprehensive health awards

scheme, the“Annual HEALTH Awards”was formally announced in

Dubai. The awards ceremony will be held on January 16th, 2017

at a glittering ceremony in Dubai. This annual award instituted

by HEALTH magazine has already received a rousing welcome

from our readers as well as healthcare professionals and estab-

lishments from across the region, which can be gauged by the

enthusiastic in-flow of nomination submissions. The aim of the

award is to acknowledge and appreciate exceptional contribu-

tions in the fields of healthcare as well as publicize and promote

significant achievements from across the region. We hope the

awards gradually evolve as an industry benchmark of profes-

sional excellence.

Thumbay Hospital – Ajman had the pleasure of hosting a Jap-

anese MBBS student, for her observership program. The stu-

dent, Ms. Yuko Sakamoto, is presently in the 6th year of her

MBBS program at Osaka City University in Japan. We are proud

of the fact that Thumbay Hospital and GMU together facilitat-

ed the successful completion of her month-long observership;

an experience she termed as ‘deeply enriching and highly en-

joyable’. The world-class infrastructure and global popularity

of Thumbay Hospitals and Gulf Medical University continues

to draw patients and students from all over the world, and we

take immense pride in our stellar reputation, which enjoins

more responsibilities on us.

When Thumbay Group’s Healthcare Division launched Thum-

bay Clinics last year, our intention was to take world-class

healthcare to the communities, enabling them to access qual-

ity treatments at affordable costs. True to their mission, Thum-

bay Clinics have today emerged as one of the most popular

networks of state-of-the-art family clinics, delivering superior

healthcare at the people’s doorsteps. Two of our clinics based

in Ajman and Umm Al Quwain, celebrated their first anniver-

saries in July. We are humbled by the trust that people have

placed on Thumbay hospitals and clinics, and we hope to con-

tinue enjoying the same always.

Zo & Mo Opticals – Ajman and Body & Soul Elite Health Club &

Spa in Ajman also completed their first year of successful op-

erations in July this year.

A new Thumbay Pharmacy offering the complete range of

medicines, medical equipment, and rehabilitation care prod-

ucts has opened in Yarmook, Sharjah. Thumbay Pharmacy

now numbers over 40, and is well on track to achieve our Vi-

sion 2020 objective of reaching 100 pharmacy outlets by 2020.

We had yet another reason to celebrate as Thumbay Labs

recently emerged as one of the largest networks of CAP-ac-

credited private diagnostic labs in the region. This enviable

feat was achieved with the accreditation of the labs in Dubai

and Fujairah by the College of American Pathologists (CAP),

taking the total number of CAP-accredited Thumbay Labs to

three, including the central facility in Ajman, which had been

accredited earlier. We consider this prestigious accreditation as

a testament to our excellent services, and endeavor to further

improve our standard of excellence.

I hope to have more events and achievements to share with

you when I write to you next. Till then, here’s wishing you good

health and happiness.

Also a very hearty Eid Al Adha Mubarak to all of our dear readers!
