We are proud of this achievement, yet humbled to think about all the families we have served. Back in 2002, when we opened this hospital, our first academic hospital, we developed a mission statement to which we have strictly adhered all these years. Our focus has been to always put the best interest of the patients before everything else.”
The hospital’s expert team of gynaecologists and neonatologists have also successfully handled several high-risk pregnancy cases, complicated cases of premature deliveries, triplet births, etc. Of the total number of babies delivered since 2002, approximately 58% were girls and 42% were boys.
Among the reasons for the hospital’s growing popularity is its world-class facilities, combined with some of the best doctors in the region. The Thumbay Hospital network has established an integrated patient-centric healthcare model that takes into consideration the emotional and cultural needs of a patient in addition to their medical needs, all the while ensuring affordability.
“Over the years, Thumbay Hospital, Ajman has enjoyed the pleasure of celebrating with countless families as they welcomed new members. The hospital’s commitment to providing high-quality care and uncompromising service for patients, at the same time making treatment affordable, has been among the reasons for its popularity as a leading destination for mother and childcare. We thank all our patients for placing their care in our hands and the staff of the hospital for the wonderful work they’ve done and continue to do. We also thank all those who have referred their friends and family to us,” said Mr. Akbar Moideen Thumbay, Vice President of the Healthcare Division of Thumbay Group.

The hospital strongly advocates ‘kangaroo care’ wherein parents are encouraged to keep the premature babies close to their chests during the winter, to avert the risk of hypothermia. ‘Absolute breastfeeding’ is yet another policy of the hospital, and accordingly, the hospital encourages mothers to only breastfeed the babies up to 6 months, and not to give any other milk.
