In my 25 years of professional career, there are hardly few people who have impressed me with their work and vision. Dr. Thumbay Moideen, the Founder President of Thumbay Group, is one of them. He is down to earth, and believes in articulating his views for a broader perspective for all, and that too in a humble manner. Creating a state-of-the-art healthcare infrastructure is his dream, and he sets no instant hallmarks as he goes on to build the UAE's first local medical university and healthcare facilities known for their meticulous services.
In an exclusive interview with Khaleej Times, Dr. Thumbay says, "We stand apart as we dispense medical services, and are one of the best. We are involved in a whole range of healthcare-related issues comprising from treating patients to teaching doctors and indulging in professional research. No one can match us. Though we may not be as big as others, we are invincible."
He says the UAE is an amazing country, and one which is full of opportunities for all. "At Thumbay we are busy erecting an effective and reliable network of healthcare services ranging from hospitals to clinics, pharmacies and laboratories, where patients can repose their trust."
For Dr. Thumbay sky is the limit, as he keeps himself engrossed with developmental issues, and envisages them in a manner that is top-notch when it comes to competition. The roadmap is ambitious but attainable given the synergies, Dr. Thumbay and his team put in a 1,000-bed hospital university in the UAE, apart from numerous clinics and hospitals; three hospitals in India and 750-bed facilities in Ghana, Oman, Qatar and Uganda.
"We are working with the UAE authorities to make it an indispensable hub for healthcare tourism in the region. Our healthcare pattern differentiates from others. It is comprehensive, innovative and more so indigenous," Dr. Thumbay remarked.
"The UAE brings in brands as a model of excellence. We will be the only locally born. Our overseas expansion plans are a pride for the UAE." He says the focus is on medical tourism, to attract patients from Africa, Iran, India, Bangladesh and elsewhere in the region."
When asked how and what kind of role he plays, a modest Dr. Thumbay says, "I'm just a facilitator, my goal is to see success achieved and the lofty objectives we have set are met. I have a great team, and they are good leaders in their individual capacity. We brainstorm on a regular basis, and I try to facilitate things at my end. It goes without saying that the project is close to my heart."
