DUBAI, Dr. Azad Moopen, Founder, Chairman and Managing Director of Aster DM Healthcare, has been honoured with the Lifetime Achievement Award at 10th edition of The Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce (FICCI) Healthcare Excellence Awards in recognition of his valuable contribution and efforts in the field of healthcare.
Under his leadership, Aster DM Healthcare in the last 31 years has become one of the few entities across the globe providing the complete circle of care from primary, secondary, tertiary to quaternary medical care. Starting with a single doctor clinic in Dubai in 1987, when healthcare was still in its primitive stages in the region, Dr. Moopen has played a significant role in shaping the healthcare industry in UAE and GCC. Today Aster DM Healthcare has grown into an integrated healthcare conglomerate of over 300 establishments, including hospitals, clinics, pharmacies and diagnostic centres spread across nine countries.
Accepting the award at a ceremony in New Delhi, Dr. Moopen paid tribute to Aster DM Healthcare's 17,000+ staff members for their efforts in providing "compassionate care to millions of patients" and hard work to keep pushing the boundaries of healthcare excellence.
