Thumbay Hospital – Ajman, the first academic hospital established by Thumbay Group under its healthcare division, celebrated its 17th Anniversary with a special function at the hospital, on 17th October 2019. Dr. Thumbay Moideen – Founder President of Thumbay Group was the chief guest of the cake-cutting ceremony held as part of the celebrations, in the presence of Prof. Hossam Hamdy – the Chancellor of Gulf Medical University, Mr. Mohammad Abufara – Chief Operating Officer of Thumbay Hospital Ajman, members of the hospital’s administrative team and hospital staff.
Thumbay Hospital – Ajman was inaugurated on 17th October 2002 by His Highness Sheikh Humaid Bin Rashid Al Nuaimi, Member of the Supreme Council, UAE and Ruler of Ajman. It is part of the Gulf Medical University Academic Health System (GMUAHS), the first private academic health system in the region, and provides clinical training to the students of Gulf Medical University. Its inception marked the beginning of Thumbay Group’s foray into healthcare, with many more academic hospitals, family clinics and day care hospitals later added to the group’s healthcare division. Today, Thumbay Hospitals constitute the biggest network of private academic hospitals in the region, and the largest group of JCI-accredited private academic hospitals in the region.
Dr. Thumbay Moideen said that the 17th anniversary of Thumbay Hospital Ajman is a proud milestone for the Group. “When Thumbay Hospital Ajman was built, it was primarily with the purpose of providing adequate training facilities to the students of Gulf Medical University, Ajman. However, today it stands tall as one of the best hospitals in the UAE and a popular medical tourism destination in the region. What started with this hospital has now grown into the Thumbay Hospital network with presence throughout the UAE and in India. With the opening Thumbay Medicity in Ajman, with three world-class hospitals – the Thumbay University Hospital, Thumbay Physical Therapy & Rehabilitation Hospital and Thumbay Dental hospital – Thumbay Group has achieved yet another landmark in our persistent pursuit of excellence in healthcare, medical education and research.”
Mr. Akbar Moideen Thumbay, Vice President of Thumbay Group’s Healthcare Division said, “Today, 17 years after its inception, Thumbay Hospital Ajman is a leading hospital in the country attracting patients from across the globe. The hospital has become a leading facility of clinical training for the graduates of Gulf Medical University, becoming an integral part of the Gulf Medical University Academic Health System, at the same time growing into the largest and the most prestigious hospital under the healthcare division of Thumbay Group. I thank everyone who has supported the hospital’s journey in the last 17 years, and we look forward to celebrating more milestones in future.”
